SAVANNAH, Ga. - The AlphaGraphics Armstrong State Student-Athlete of the Month for November is junior men's cross country runner Henning Schein.
AlphaGraphics and the Armstrong State University athletic department are teaming up again this year to honor one student-athlete each month that best represents the Pirates' drive to succeed on the field and in the classroom. The Pirates have won the Peach Belt Conference Commissioner's Cup four out of the last five years while 58% of our student-athletes carried a GPA of 3.0 or better last year. This kind of success can not happen without the efforts of our outstanding student-athletes.
A native of Vellmar, Germany, Schein became the first Armstrong State men's cross country runner to represent the program at the NCAA Division II National Championships in November. He qualified for the national championships by running fifth at the NCAA Southeast Regionals in Montevallo, then placed 114th out of 248 runners at the national championships, running the 10k course in a time of 32:25.2, the second-fastest 10k time in school history.
Schein earned All-Region, All-Peach Belt Conference and PBC All-Academic Team honors this season for the Pirates. He carries a 3.94 GPA in rehabilitation sciences and is the first three-time All-Conference and All-Region runner in Pirate men's cross country history.
