L-R’s Moffatt Wins Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award for Third Time

Lenoir-Rhyne’s Myles Moffat was voted the 2022 South Atlantic Conference Men’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year. This will be the third time Moffat will have received this honor.

The South Atlantic Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year award is presented annually to one student-athlete in each of the Conference’s championship sports and is voted on by the SAC’s Faculty Athletic Representatives Committee. The winners are selected based on their achievements in academics, athletics, service, and leadership.

Moffat, a graduate student attacker from Airdrie, Alberta, Canada has a bachelors in Management and Marketing and recently earned his MBA with a 4.0 GPA. He has made an appearance on the university’s Presidents List three times for having a 3.9 GPA or higher and no B’s. Moffat has been a part of the Chi Alpha Sigma National College Honor Society which honors college athletes who have excelled in the classroom and in competition. He was awarded the 2021 Wayne B. Powell award which is given to one Lenoir-Rhyne male athlete who embodies excellence in the classroom, on the field and is a true leader on campus. He has now been named the Men’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year three times in a row.

“We are proud of all the hard work Myles has done in the classroom to make him stand out from his peers across the conference and the nation. To win this award for a third straight year shows how impactful he has been on and off the field during his career.” Said Head Coach Greg Paradine.

During his first year with the Bears, he was named the South Atlantic Conference Freshman of the Year as well as an All-SAC Honorable Mention honoree. In his sophomore season he was named a Third Team All-American and Second Team All-Decade member voted on by Lenoir-Rhyne Coaches for individuals who have performed on the field over the past ten years. He was voted the Comeback Athlete of the Year after an injured season. In his junior season he was named a First Team All-SAC Attacker and helped lead the Bears to their victory over Wingate in the 2021 SAC Men’s Lacrosse Championship. His Redshirt senior year was one for the books as he once again was named to All-SAC second team and took home the 2022 SAC Championship title in a thrilling win over Limestone. He helped lead the Bears to an NCAA appearance where they took on Tampa in the National Quarterfinal game.

Moffat is involved in many service and leadership opportunities starting with many years of volunteer work at the Catawba County Humane Society caring for dogs and cats, while also cleaning cages, walking dogs and caring for cats. He has been part of the Bears Leadership Academy, a program that develops and educates student-athletes on becoming great leaders on the field and in life. Moffat was involved in Lenoir-Rhyne’s “828 Day,” which included signing autographs and playing games and activities with young kids. He has collected donations for a Soup Kitchen in Hickory and participated in Hickory’s Christmas parade to support local community members.
