Brian Zimdars, a native of Galena, graduate of Olentangy High School and member of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater men’s soccer team, is one of 346 Warhawk student-athletes representing all 20 of the institution’s varsity sport programs to be named to the 2017-18 Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Honor Roll.
Zimdars, a senior at UW-Whitewater during the 2017-18 year, is majoring in finance.
The Warhawks’ 11 women’s teams had 197 honorees, while 149 student-athletes from the nine men’s teams garnered Scholastic Honor Roll accolades. The Honor Roll is part of the “WIAC Scholar-Athlete Recognition Program”.
In addition to the 346 individual awards, UW-Whitewater was named an All-Academic institution as student-athletes earned a GPA equal to, or greater than, the collective GPA of the overall student body.
To be eligible for the list, student-athletes must have carried a 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. Nearly 50 percent of the WIAC’s 5,038 student-athletes achieved Honor Roll status.
For more than 140 years, UW-Whitewater has provided students with the education and training to begin their careers with a solid foundation behind them. The UW-Whitewater is committed to the development of the individual, the growth of personal and professional integrity and respect for diversity and global perspectives. These are met by providing academic and co-curricular programs that emphasize the pursuit of knowledge and understanding and a commitment to service within a safe and secure environment.
