Amelia Moorehouse of Gregory was honored as All-American in Academics from the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association at its National Championship meet on March 24, 2019, in Oshkosh, Wisc.
Moorehouse, who is graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, is one of just 45 student-athletes across the country to be honored for maintaining at least a 3.0 overall grade point average and appearing on their team’s NCGA squad list. The nominees had to qualify as a senior student academically, and be in the last year of athletic eligibility.
At UW-Eau Claire, Moorehouse has been a two-time team captain, and she was a national championship qualifier on the floor exercise this year.
Moorehouse, who graduated from FlexTech High School in Brighton, is the daughter of Buddy and Kathy Moorehouse. She is graduating with a bachelor’s degree in applied behavior analysis; she’ll begin work on a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis at Michigan State University in the fall, with the goal of becoming an autism therapist.
