UMW Athletics Establishes Chapter Of Chi Alpha Sigma

Press release UMW

The University of Montana Western Athletic Department has been accepted into the National College Athlete Honor Society, Chi Alpha Sigma (XAΣ), which recognizes student-athletes from accredited four-year NCAA, NAIA, USCAA or NCCAA institutions who excel in both the classroom and competition.

Chi Alpha Sigma was founded in 1996 by then DePauw University head football coach Nick Mourouzis. His goal was to provide outstanding student-athletes with an opportunity to become connected within a fraternal association that aligns their educational and athletic successes for a lifetime.

In order to be inducted into Chi Alpha Sigma, a student-athlete must attend a four-year accredited college or university that is a member of the NCAA, NAIA, USCAA or NCCAA. The honoree also must achieve at least junior academic standing by the fifth semester or seventh quarter, as determined by the certifying institution, and must have achieved a minimum cumulative grade-point average of a 3.4 (on a 4.0 scale).

Katie Lovett, UMW's Head Volleyball Coach and Senior Woman Leader, will serve as advisor for UMW's chapter of Chi Alpha Sigma. Montana Western will hold its first induction ceremony in the spring before graduation.

Montana Western joins MSU-Billings as the other school in Montana that are members of Chi Alpha Sigma.
