Amy Henard Earns Third C-USA All-Academic Selection

Nov. 18, 2016

IRVING – North Texas senior captain Amy Henard was one of 12 Conference USA student-athletes named to the InTouch Credit Union All-Academic team, announced by the conference on Friday.

This is the third-straight selection for Henard, who maintains a 3.8 GPA, while double majoring in biology and chemistry.

“Being selected for the All-Academic team means a lot to me,” Henard said. “It is a reminder that all of the hard work and studying that I do off the court pays off.”

Henard excels on the court as well, as she became the first player in North Texas history to record 3,500 assists and 1,000 digs in a career this season. Additionally, she moved into third place in career assists with 3,800.

The lone senior will lead North Texas into the conference tournament this weekend in Houston. North Texas’ first win-or-go home match is on Friday against Southern Miss, the No. 2 seed, at 7 p.m. inside Tudor Fieldhouse.

In order to qualify for the award, nominees must have a 3.2 cumulative GPA, at least a sophomore class standing, and be a starter or key reserve member of the squad.
