Allie Binder, Ashley Teten 2021-2022 Doane University Scholar-Athlete Honorees

Two Auburn High School graduates have been named scholar-athletes from Doane University at Crete.

Allie Binder of Table Rock was honored from the women’s cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field teams. She received a bachelor of arts degree in elementary education in May.

Ashley Teten of Auburn will be a senior guard on the women’s basketball team in 2022-2023. During 2021-2022, Teten averaged 8.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game while starting 29 games. The Tigers finished last season 12-18 overall and 6-16 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC), 10th among the conference’s 12 schools.

Both achieved the Doane and Pflieger-Olson GPAC Scholar-Athlete recognition. To earn both honors, a student-athlete must participate in their sport for the full year and hold a 3.30 grade point average (GPA). The GPAC achievement is presented to those who contributed to their varsity team--10 percent of varsity events scheduled for the regular season--or those who are eligible for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) academic honor. Those achieving the NAIA honor are being announced in September.

Binder and Teten are among 272 student-athletes from Doane’s 22 sports being recognized. Those include 217 meriting the GPAC honor. Binder was among 27 honorees from women’s track and field and eight from women’s cross country. Teten was among 11 women’s basketball players chosen. The Doane student-athletes combined to post a 3.12 GPA.

Additionally, Binder achieved academic honors from the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Student-athletes must hold a cumulative 3.25 GPA and earn an automatic or provisional national qualifying mark during the academic year. Binder was among seven Tigers earning the honor. Doane’s women’s track and field team notched a 3.41 GPA.
