Loyola at a Glance
Loyola's Fontenot, Domengeaux named NAIA Scholar-Athletes
June 4, 2010
Senior Kevin Fontenot and junior Taylor Domengeaux of the Loyola University New Orleans baseball team were named to the 2010 Daktronics-National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Baseball Scholar-Athletes list.
Fontenot, a physics major, made the list for the third time at Loyola after redshirting last year due to an injury. Domengeaux, who is majoring in business, earned the award in his first eligible year for scholar-athlete honors.
In order to be eligible for the award, the student-athlete must be at least a junior in good academic standing and maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5.
While succeeding in the classroom, both players were an integral part in Loyola’s season. Fontenot, from Baton Rouge, La., became Loyola’s all-time leader in steals and saves while leading the ‘Pack this season in ERA, stolen bases, and saves. Domengeaux, a native of Des Allemands, La., started all 49 games for Loyola, notching six wins on the mound and also started 39 games at shortstop.
The Loyola baseball team has now had at least two players make the scholar-athlete list for seven consecutive seasons.
