Natural Shooter Nails Academic Honor

Shea Rasmussen’s (’12) accomplishments on the court speak for themselves. The 2012 Association of Division III Independents Player of the Year, First-Team All-GPAC guard and NAIA Division II Honorable Mention All-American holds the Nebraska Wesleyan record for career 3-pointers (199), and is the Prairie Wolves’ third all-time leading scorer with 1,292 points.

The Longmont, Colo., native can now add a top academic award to her impressive list of athletic accomplishments. Rasmussen is a 2012 Capital One Academic All-American. She joins Dr. Kim Hissong (’86) and MaLaine (Tejkl) Wood (’88) as the third women’s basketball player to earn Academic All-America honors.

With 127 Academic All-America awards, Nebraska Wesleyan University now ranks eighth nationally among all divisions.
