LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The University of Louisville athletic department played host to its 18th annual Red and Black Honors Banquet and Scholar-Athlete Awards ceremony on Friday night at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
In recognizing the pep band for the first time in the awards, a combined 386 student-athletes, managers and spirit squad members - cheerleading, dance, and pep band - were recognized for achieving at least a 3.25 cumulative grade-point average for all semesters at Louisville.
During the ceremony, the honor for highest team grade-point average for 2013 - spanning the spring and fall of the past calendar year - was bestowed. The men's golf team attained the men's award for the fourth-consecutive year, and the women's golf team won its third-consecutive honor.
For individual accolades, Hannah Kvitle was recognized as the top women's senior and Grant Donovan received the men's award. Kvitle, a setter for the volleyball team, owns a 3.932 grade-point average in special education and had 167 digs in 2013. Donovan, who owns a 3.931 GPA in sport administration, played 12 games for the football team, recovering a fumble, and helping the squad win its third bowl game in the last four years.
Faculty Athletics Representative Elaine Wise began the ceremony by recognizing the student-athletes, professors, faculty, and academic mentors for their continuing hard work en route to the academic success.
