The award goes to the Midwest Conference male student-athlete who had the highest grade point average during his junior year while lettering in at least two league sports. It is named for Roy W. LeClere, a collegiate sports enthusiast whose passion for the MWC led friends and co-workers to originally sponsor the award as a memorial in his honor.

Bruce, from Middleton, Wis. (Middleton HS), earned an NCAA provisional standard in one-meter diving when she scored 259.50 in six dives at a home dual meet with Loras College Friday. She not only won that event, but claimed victory in three-meter diving, as well.

For the season, Bruce has won five diving crowns in three dual meets. She set the school record for one-meter diving (11 dives) last season with a score of 420.45.

Grinnell College's Frances Leslie '10 was named to the honorable mention list of the 2009 National Soccer Coaches Association of America Scholar All-Central Region Women's Team.

The forward also helped the Pioneer women claim the 2009 Team Academic Award from the NSCAA. Leslie led the Pioneers in goals in 2009, including a four-goal performance against Illinois College that was just one shy of the school record.

Grinnell's men had two honorees on the All-North Central/Region Team, as JP Prouty '10 was named to the first team and Alex Exarhos '10 the second team.
