Sara Bauer named Remington Scholar

I'm absolutely horrified that I slept through this. Sara Bauer was recently named a 2007-08 Remington Scholar. This honor is awarded to one male and one female student-athlete at the UW every year. The recipients are student-athletes who have completed their eligibilty and have the top cumulative grade point average of all male or female student-athletes.

Sara's accomplishments are quite impressive -- in addition to winning 2 national championships with the Badgers, she won the Patty Kazmeier Award (analogous to the Hobey Baker Award in men's hockey) in 2006, was a top-three finalsit for the Patty Kaz in 2007, was the Most Outstanding Player at the 2007 FF, was named 1st-team All-American twice, and was named the 2007 WCHA Player of the Year and the 2007 USCHO National Player of the Year. She was also the 2007 UW Women's Athlete of the Year. And she did all this while earning a degree in kinesiology with a 4.0 cumulative GPA. WOW.

In addition to the Remington award, other academic recognition that she has garnered during her career at the UW include receiving the 2007 Medal of Honor and being named the 2006 and 2007 At-Large Academic All-American of the Year in the University Division awarded by ESPN The Magazine.

Congratulations, Sara!
