Titans Boast Winning Streak in Athletics and Academics
Following a proud tradition of student-athletes at Illinois Wesleyan, 2014 graduate
Lexi Baltes excelled on the court and in the classroom. She played on Illinois Wesleyan's
2012 national champion women's basketball team, was one of nine finalists for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year award and became the 116th Academic All-American in the University's history.
Illinois Wesleyan athletics boasts 6 National NCAA Division III Championship Teams, 132
College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin Team Championships, and 12 athletes who
are Alumni Members of National Athletic Halls of Fame.
With the selection of Baltes, Illinois Wesleyan became 17th in the nation among schools
in all divisions for its total Academic All-Americans in all sports, and fourth among
all Division III schools in the country.
As Baltes joined the ranks of Academic All-Americans at Illinois Wesleyan, she double
majored in English and political science. She is currently enrolled in law school
at the University of Notre Dame.
In addition, Baltes' nomination as NCAA Woman of the Year recognized her as a student-athlete
whose college career was marked by outstanding achievements in academics, athletics,
community service and leadership.
