Mount Union's Wiedt and Rose Named Academic All-OAC

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union seniors Kori Wiedt (North Olmsted/North Olmsted) and Amanda Rose (Green/Green) were each named Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference by the conference's 10 faculty athletics representatives.

Wiedt, now a two-time Academic All-OAC selection, shared OAC Player of the Year honors this season with teammate Rosa LaMattina (Westlake/Westlake) and is second on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game and is fifth in the nation in three-point shooting percentage at .455.  A four-time All-OAC selection, Wiedt is fifth on the school's all-time list with 1,258 career points and is the all-time leader in three-pointers made with 238.  Off the court, she is a biology major with a 3.48 grade point average and is doing an internship with The Sherwin Williams Co. in Cleveland, Ohio.

Rose is a three-time Academic All-OAC pick that was named All-OAC Second Team earlier this season.  She is the Purple Raiders' top rebounder at 5.3 points per game and is third in scoring at 11.5 points per game.  A two-time All-OAC selection, she is 11th on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,100 points.  Off the court, she is a business administration major with a 3.95 grade point average, who has done internships with Fannie May Confections in Akron, Mount Union's Office of Human Resorces and The Timken Company in Canton.

To be eligible, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.25 gpa, be a starter or keyreserve and be in at least her second year of participation in the sport.

The duo have helped lead the Raiders to three OAC Tournament titles, two OAC Regular Season titles and Mount Union is currently ranked sixth in the nation and hosting the Sectional round of the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship.   The Raiders "Sweet 16" matchup with Illinois Wesleyan will be Friday at 7 pm in Alliance.
