Perfect Seniors Camille Moseley and Tom McAndrews Honored as Scholar-Athletes

June 30, 2008

With both achieving their own piece of academic perfection, track and field/cross country standout Camille Moseley and football player Tom McAndrews have been selected as Eastern Washington University's recipients of the Big Sky Conference Scholar-Athlete Award for the 2007-08 school year. 

The Scholar-Athlete Award recognizes and honors the "best of the best" of the conference's nearly 3,000 student-athletes. One senior male and one senior female from each school in the conference are honored for their athletic and academic achievements. The award goes to seniors who have achieved outstanding success in the classroom as well as the playing field.

Moseley had a 3.77 grade point average and graduated with her bachelor's degree in health education. Now married, Moseley is the former Camille Gibb from Ellensburg, Wash., and is a 2003 graduate of Kittitas High School. She ended her career a perfect 12 for 12 in receiving recognition on the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team -- four each in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track.

McAndrews had a perfect 4.0 grade point average and graduated with his bachelor's degree as a double major in finance and economics. He is a 2003 graduate of Mead High School in Spokane, Wash., where he also had a perfect 4.0 GPA.

Moseley concluded her career with an appearance in the 5,000 meters at the NCAA West Regionals in Northridge, Calif., on May 30-31, 2008. Two weeks prior to that, she was 10th in the 1,500 at the Big Sky Conference Championships.

Her 2008 season was highlighted by a school-record performance in the 1,500 meters at the Steve Scott Invitational in Irvine, Calif., on May 4. She placed second with a time of 4:30.33 to break Hannah Lohrmann's record of 4:31.93 set in 1999.

Her record time in the 1,500 was one of three personal-best performances Moseley had in the 2008 outdoor season. Her 5,000 time of 16:44.09 at the Oregon Relays ranks second in school history behind teammate Mattie Bridgmon. Moseley also had a time of 2:15.48 in the 800 meters to rank eighth in school history.

Including a fifth-place finish in the 1,500 outdoors in 2007, Moseley placed in the top 12 a total of 10 times at Big Sky Conference Championship events, including four times in the top eight. As a freshman in 2004, she placed fifth in the 800 at the Big Sky Indoor Championships. She ranks in the top three in school history in three indoor events -- third in the 800 (2:14.42), third in the mile (5:01.34) and fourth in the 3,000 (10:05.51).

In cross country, Moseley placed 12th (2005), 16th (2006) and 28th (2003) at Big Sky Conference Championship events.

Among the many honors he won as a senior, McAndrews was selected as one of 51 members of the 10th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star Team and a finalist for that organization's postgraduate scholarship. Earlier in the season, McAndrews was a first team member of the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VIII team. In addition, he was also one of 153 semifinalists -- 40 from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision -- for The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) 2007 Draddy Trophy, presented by HealthSouth.

He has been named to the Dean's List 14 out of a possible 14 quarters at Eastern. He was also selected to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team for the fourth-straight year in 2007 and was nominated for a NCAA Postgraduate scholarship.

McAndrews was the 2006 recipient of the "Iron Eagle" Award for EWU Football academic and athletic achievement. He was awarded a Trustee's Scholarship (2006), Washington Promise Scholarship (2003) and Red Reese Scholarship (2003). He also became a member of Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society (2007).

In 2005 he was EWU's Most Improved Player and in 2007 served as game captain once. He helped Eastern Washington win Big Sky Conference titles in 2004 and 2005, as well as berths in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs in 2004, 2005 and 2007.

He scored the first touchdown of his Eastern career against UC Davis on Sept. 15, 2007, on an 8-yard reception in the fourth quarter of the 41-31 win. Mainly used as a blocking tight end, fullback and on special teams, he finished his career with 23 catches for 220 yards in 41 games played (11 as a starter).

His community service activities include serving as a PLUS (Program Leading to Undergraduate Success) Facilitator in business law for the EWU Academic Support Center (2006). He was an intern as Community and Economic Development Assistant for the Cheney community/EWU campus development group called Pathways to Progress (2005). He has also been a volunteer for Harvest Food Bank, Spokane Guild School, Habitat for Humanity and the Cheney School District.

Moseley and McAndrews were recognized and honored at the 16th Annual Academic Recognition Luncheon hosted by EWU President Dr. Rodolfo Arevalo. The event took place on May 6, 2008, and honored 95 Eastern student-athletes (including multi-sport athletes) who have or are expected to receive Big Sky Conference All-Academic honors in the 2006-07 school year. Including spring sports, a total of 122 BSC All-Academic honors were won during the academic year.
