Add another accolade to Mallory Sanner's spectacular sophomore season.
The Seton Hill University junior, who claimed the NCAA Division II javelin championship for the 2013 outdoor track and field season, has been named the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Outdoor Field Scholar Athlete of the Year.
As a sophomore, Sanner carried a 3.77 cumulative grade-point average as an elementary education major with a specialization in special education.
She won the national javelin championship in Pueblo, Colo., with a throw of 162 feet, 2 inches, placing her in the top 10 performances all time in Division II. She is the first Seton Hill student to earn a scholar-athlete of the year award.
Sanner, the 2013 Westmoreland YWCA Sportswoman of the Year, previously was named West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year and was recognized additionally by the USTFCCA as a member of its all-Academic Track and Field Team.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
