ST. PAUL, Minn. - St. Olaf sophomore Mike Schroeder was named the MIAC Elite 22 Award for men's tennis, as he helped St. Olaf to the league's playoff title match while holding a 3.91 GPA.

The MIAC Elite 22 Award recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the conference championship level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers. Modeled after the NCAA Elite 89 Award, the MIAC Elite 22 Award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest grade point average (GPA) in each sport who meet similarly high, sport-specific athletic requirements.

St. Olaf reached the MIAC final with victories over Bethel and Carleton in the opening two rounds.

Schroeder was 9-6 in singles play this season and 6-3 in doubles action.

Schroeder was one of four St. Olaf student-athletes to earn the honor this year, joining Grant Wintheiser (men's cross country), Sam Daly (men's basketball) and Phillip Meyer (men's outdoor track and field).
