DETROIT, Mich. -- Two Mustang seniors, Justin Armstrong (Detroit, Mich./Academy of Oak Park) and Cameron Coburn (Bay City, Mich./All Saints), were recognized by the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) with the release of the conference's annual men's basketball honors. The awards come shortly after a season in which the pair led a young team into the program's first year in the WHAC.
Justin Armstrong was named to the WHAC's All-Academic Team after meeting the requirements of a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA and junior or above academic standing. The four-year varsity student-athlete joins a host of other Mustangs to be named to the WHAC's All-Academic Team during the 2012-13 academic year. Recently, the all-academic student-athletes were joined by others to make up a list of approximately 40 current Mustangs that were recognized on the semi-annual Athletic Director Honor Roll. Current Marygrove student-athletes were named to the list if they achieved a 3.25 semester GPA or higher while enrolling and completing a minimum of 12 credit hours during the Fall 2012 semester.
CHAMPION OF CHARACTER

The four-year standout Mustang was recently featured in his hometown paper, The Bay City Times, for a character-filled career at Marygrove College that led to a spot on this year's WHAC Champions of Character Team. Coburn's unwavering dedication to the athletic department and men's basketball team made him the unquestioned Champions of Character choice for head coach Dave Sichterman.
