BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Tris Dodge (Sr./Oakland, Calif./College Prep) was recognized for his academic and athletic excellence as he was named the recipient of the 2019 MIAC Elite 22 Award for men’s indoor track and field.

The MIAC Elite 22 Award recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the MIAC Championships level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers. Modeled after the NCAA Elite 90 Award, the MIAC Elite 22 Award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest grade-point average (GPA) in each sport who meets similarly high, sport-specific athletic requirements.

In indoor track and field, the winner is the individual with the highest GPA who was named all-conference. The recipient must be a sophomore, junior, or senior and in at least his or her second season of competition with their current team.

Dodge, a biology major with a cumulative 3.95 GPA, was the runner-up in the 5,000-meter run at the 2019 MIAC Indoor Championships. He also turned in a sixth-place result in the 3,000-meter run at the same meet. Dodge is headed to the NCAA Championships this weekend in Boston and will race the shorter of those two distances.

Dodge is the third Knight to capture an Elite 22 Award during the 2018-19 academic year. He joins Abby Euyang (So./Seattle, Wash./Lakeside), who was the recipient of the women’s golf award, and David Rubin (So./Ann Arbor, Mich./Greenhills), who took home the honor for men’s soccer.
