West Liberty University’s grad student Dan Monteroso received the Mountain East Conference’s Scholar Athlete of the Year Award.  Monteroso, a St. Clairsville High School graduate, carried a 4.0 grade point-average during the 2016-17 academic year.  Not only was Monteroso the leading scorer for WLU’s football and basketball teams-the only NCAA Division II student-athlete to accomplish that double-he attained national recognition as one of only five first-team NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Academic All-Americans with a 4.0 GPS in pursuit of his master’s degree in Education.
