Seniors honored

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Arkansas Athletic Department honored its senior student-athletes with an awards banquet in the Raymond Miller Hall of Champions Thursday.

Student-athletes received senior rings while graduating student-athletes from the December, May and summer semesters received diploma plaques from Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long.

In addition, several individual standouts were honored for accomplishments both in and out of their playing arenas.

“This evening was a celebration of our senior student-athletes’ accomplishments and their growth as young women and men athletically, academically and socially,” Long said. “This special class of Razorbacks has brought honor to the University with their accomplishments in the classroom, on the fields of competition and in the community. We wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for their commitment and dedication. Even though their collegiate careers are coming to an end at the University of Arkansas, they will always be Razorbacks.”

Among those recognized were the Razorback Senior Student-Athlete of the Year and the Brandon Burlsworth Scholar Athlete Award winner.

This year’s Senior Student-Athletes of the Year were Alain Bailey of the men’s cross country/track and field teams and gymnast Casey Jo Magee. This award is presented to seniors who have promoted Razorback Athletics through his or her outstanding athletic achievements at the University, SEC and national levels.

The Brandon Burlsworth Scholar-Athlete Award is named for former Razorback football player Brandon Burlsworth whose life was cut short by a tragic accident after he graduated. The award is presented to senior student-athletes who exemplify Burlsworth’s ideals including good moral character and who have demonstrated a desire to excel in the classroom and who have a commitment to the improvement of the University of Arkansas and its surrounding communities. This year’s winners are Taylor Austin King from men’s tennis and Kathleen Paulsen from the Razorback soccer team.

The evening concluded with a senior highlight video and closing remarks. The awards banquet is an annual event for Razorback senior student-athletes.
