HU receives 8th consecutive NAIA Five Star Award

September 13, 2017 Sports

For the eighth consecutive year, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced that Huntington University has been named a recipient of the Champions of Character Five Star Award for the 2016-17 school year.

One of 183 institutions, HU received the award based on a demonstrated commitment to Champions of Character and earned points in each of the following categories: character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion. The Foresters also earned points based on exceptional student-athlete grade point averages and minimal ejections during competition throughout the course of the academic year.

Institutions are measured using the NAIA Scorecard and is based on the NAIA’s flagship program Champions of Character, which emphasizes the five core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership. To receive this award, institutions must score at least 60 out of 100 possible points. HU earned 88 of the possible 100 points to be one of 76 schools named to the silver level.

Conferences with at least 60% of their members earning Five Star recognition are designated as Champions of Character Five Star Conferences. Nine of the ten Crossroads League institutions received this award and as such, the Crossroads League has been named a Champions of Character Five Star Conference for the sixth straight year.
