Kuhnhein, Harvieux Named Centre Scholar Athletes of the Year
DANVILLE, KY-Three-year football letterman Chris Kuhnhein and track and cross country standout Sarah Harvieux have been named Centre College's male and female Scholar Athletes of the Year for 1998-99. The announcement was the highlight of Centre's All Sports Banquet Thursday honoring the academic and competitive achievements of the school's intercollegiate athletes. Western Kentucky University head women's basketball coach Steve Small was the featured speaker.
The two athletes of the year are chosen on a points system based academic record, athletic accomplishment, and community involvement. In addition to naming the Scholar Athletes of the Year, Centre announced its All-Academic team and recognized athletes who had been chosen to various All-America, All-Region, and All-Conference squads.
Kuhnhein, who also made the GTE Academic All-America team for District IV last fall, is the son of John a Sandra Kuhnhein of Fort Thomas. He is a graduate of Highlands High School and as a National Merit Finalist and a Governor's Scholar. A Dean's List student, Kuhnhein was named a member of Who's Who Among American College Students in 1997.
A three-year starter on the defensive line, Kuhnhein accounted for 45 tackles, nine for losses, and three sacks last year. He also recovered a fumble.
Harvieux will represent Centre College in state and national competition for female NCAA Woman of the Year later this spring. No similar award exists for male athletes.
The daughter of David and Kathryn Harvieux of Stillwater, Minn., Harvieux is a graduate of Stillwater Senior High School. In track and field, she holds school records in five events: the long and high jumps, the 4 x 400 and 4 x 100 relays, and the distance medley. She earned All Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference honors in both track and cross country and made the all region team in cross country.
Harvieux is a member of the Dean's List, participated in Centre's annual Girls in Sports Day, and performs volunteer work in hospitals and clinics. She plans to work in physical therapy after graduation.
