Minnesota track and field student-athlete David Pachuta and women's hockey student-athlete Anne Schleper were awarded the Big Ten's Medal of Honor on Thursday.
The honor, first given in 1915, is awarded to 24 Big Ten student-athlete graduates -- two from each program -- who "attain the greatest proficiency in athletics and scholastic work."
With 114 career points, Schleper ranks second all-time in scoring among Minnesota defensemen. She holds the record for most career games played (158) and never missed a game in her Gophers career.
An assitant captain this season, Schleper helped Minnesota capture its first national title since 2005. She is a three-time academic All-WCHA and academic All-Big Ten selection. Schleper is expected to graduate this summer with a degree in business and marketing.
Pachuta, a senior All-American and team captain at Minnesota, holds the Gophers' outdoor record in the 800 meters.
The neuroscience major was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and plans to attend Minnesota's dental school in the fall of 2012.
Pachuta was a 2012 NCAA Indoor All-American in the 800 meters and 4X400 meters, also qualifying for the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 800 meters.
UMN students have traveled to Florida colleges to collaborate with students on various projects.
When UMN students plan for a vacation, having trip cancellation travel insurance is a worthwhile commodity to check out.
