Missouri's Vock wins award

Sunday, June 6, 2010 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

University of Missouri junior Abby Vock is the recipient of the inaugural NCAA Elite 88 award for softball, announced by the NCAA  at the 2010 Women’s College World Series, held in Oklahoma City, Okla.

The Elite 88, an award founded by the NCAA, recognizes student-athletes  who have reached  national championship level, while also maintaining the highest academic standard. The Elite 88 is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA's 88 championships.
Vock, an accountancy major, won the honor with a 3.84 grade point average.  She has also been selected as a member of the Academic All-Big 12 first team each of the past two seasons.  She is the first Missouri Tiger and sixth student-athlete in the Big 12 to earn the award. The Tigers exited the Women's College World Series Saturday with a loss to Florida.
