Simpson University Sports News


REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University golfer Nick Maddalena has been named as one of the 2014 Daktronics-NAIA Men's Golf Scholar-Athletes. The senior from Yuba City, Calif., was the California Pacific Conference Golfer of the Year in 2012, the same year he competed in the NAIA National Golf Championships.

Maddalena, an accounting major, attended Faith Christian School in Yuba City, where he was named the golf team's MVP three times.

The Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete programs recognize excellence in the classroom by NAIA-member student-athletes who are juniors or above in academic standing with a 3.5 cumulative GPA. Students must appear on the eligibility certificate for the sport and have attended two full years as a non-transfer or one full year as a transfer. The awards are given annually to outstanding student-athletes in the various sports in which the program is active and their respective teams are eligible for NAIA postseason competition.
