Halko named OAC Scholar-Athlete for January
NEW CONCORD, OHIO, January 11, 2011 - The Ohio Athletic Conference has announced that Muskingum University senior wrestling standout Chip Halko has been named OAC Scholar-Athlete of the Month for January.
Halko, a biology major, carries a 3.74 grade-point-average and is a two-time Academic All-OAC honoree. He has been named to the Muskingum dean’s list multiple times throughout his college career.
“Chip is the epitome of the scholar student-athlete,” said Head Coach Joe Montgomery. “The leadership he displays on the mat and in school is a model for all student-athletes to follow.”
Halko’s success in academics is matched by his accomplishments on the mat. A three-year captain, Halko has anchored the Muskingum wrestling squad at the 133-pound weight class. He has finished fourth twice at the OAC Wrestling Championships and is currently on track for another successful year.
“Chip is a fierce competitor who always wants to win every time he steps on the mat or into the classroom,” said Montgomery. “The dedication and commitment that he demonstrates is something that his fellow students and teammates admire.”
An active member of the Muskingum University community, Halko has participated in the Clean-Up New Concord service project and Relay for Life. He is also the treasurer of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national junior/senior leadership honorary, and a member of Beta Beta Beta, the biology honorary.
A Grove City, Ohio native, Halko plans to graduate in the spring of 2011 and continue his education at the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, Ohio.
