Columbia, Mo. - Missouri sophomores Stephanie Wavro (women's golf) and Nathan Culp (baseball) were named this week's Lathrop & Gage student-athletes of the week. Both individuals were selected for the honor based on grade-point averages, skills in their respective sports and time spent in the local community. This marks the last week of the 2004-05 school year that individuals will be recognized for their outstanding achievements.
Wavro, a native of Baytown, Texas, and her team recently finished third at the NCAA Central Regional held at The Rawls Course in Lubbock, Texas, and will compete in Missouri's first-ever NCAA Championship, May 17-20, in Corvallis, Ore. Undecided on her major, Wavro closed out the semester with a 3.95 grade-point average. Aside from school and her time on the links, Wavro has donated her time to the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC), volunteering with the annual canned food drive alongside her teammates.
Left-handed Tiger pitcher Culp is a native of Glen Carbon, Ill., and holds a 3.16 grade-point average in secondary education. 7-1 on his sophomore campaign, Culp has fanned 44 batters from his time on the mound and has combined for one shutout this season. Alongside his MU teammates, Culp has provided youth clinics to Columbia residents and was a member of the Woodlands Holiday party.
The MU baseball team will take on Border Showdown rival Kansas in a three-game series beginning Friday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. (CT). Presented by Ford Midwest Dealers, the Tigers have a chance to clinch the Border Showdown title with a victory at Taylor Stadium.
