RMC women's basketball team tops the list for most Academic All-Americans 

BILLINGS, April 2 – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) announced last week that six Rocky Mountain College women have been named 2014 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes. Out of 128 Division I Women’s Basketball student-athletes, Rocky Mountain College tied with University of the Cumberlands (Kentucky) for the most athletes to achieve the honor.

To be eligible for the Academic All-American list, RMC student-athletes maintained a grade point average of at least a 3.50 and are of junior or senior standing at the College. Congratulations to the following students who pushed RMC to the top of the list: Allie Sauvegeau (Three Forks, Mont.), Taylor Kufeld (Billings, Mont.), Mariah Gondeiro (Raynesford, Mont.), Kelsey George (Phoenix, Ore.), Brittany Kumm (Great Falls, Mont.), and Brittany Myers (Cody, Wyo.).

RMC Head JV Women’s Basketball Coach Roberta O’Connor said the achievements of the student-athletes were representative of the foundations that Coach Henderson thought were important – “having girls of strong character and high academic standards … these girls represent the program well.”
