Lenoir-Rhyne’s Myles Moffat was selected as one of the two recipients of the 2021-22 South Atlantic Conference Presidents Award, the Conference announced today.
The highest individual honor presented annually by the South Atlantic Conference, the President’s Award is voted on by the league’s Faculty Athletic Representatives and to be eligible, student-athletes must exemplify excellence in athletics, academics and community service. Further, to be nominated for this prestigious award, the individual must have been honored as the Scholar-Athlete of the Year during the year in one of the league’s 20 sponsored sports.
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. He was awarded the 2021 Wayne B.

He has been named the Men’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year three times in a row.
“Myles is a special young man. It is no coincidence that since his arrival on campus, our program has achieved historic levels of success on the field, in the classroom and in the community. His legacy and impact on our lacrosse program will be felt for years to come.” Said Head Coach Greg Paradine.
