Former Northern Illinois basketball team captain Ally Lehman, now commissioned a Lieutenant and posted to the Airborne, has played her way onto the All-Army Women's Basketball Team, which gave the Army bragging rights for intra-service rivalries.
Graduating team captain Mikayla Voigt, who recently successfully sat her nursing boards, is the Mid-American Conference nominee for NCAA Woman of the Year.
Their team-mates recorded a 3.51 team cumulative grade point average for the academic year just ended, good for listing among the Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll, the only Mid-American basketball program so named.
They continue to rally with growing confidence, which could make for an entertaining winter.
Good work, kids.
