Mac's Braimbridge receives high honor

By Steve Sell
June 01, 2020

McPherson College’s Amy Braimbridge has been selected to the CoSIDA NAIA women’s track and field/cross country All-District Academic Team.

Braimbridge, who could very well be a Bulldog Hall of Famer someday after an amazing career, was one of five KCAC honorees.

The 2020 Women's Track & Field/Cross Country Academic All-District Team recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

Braimbridge carried a 3.48 GPA in health science.

Other KCAC selections were Lauren Doll of Friends, Marah Franz of Tabor, Kristen Herzet of Bethel and Bailie Tolle of Kansas Wesleyan.

Rural History for SALE.  Many moons ago this property was a working farm operated by McPherson College… nowadays it's a nearly 6 acre private homestead on the outskirts of town.  The big red barn with concrete floors and a hoedown hay loft has plenty of room for both livestock and a workshop.  Various outbuildings include a metal building, lean-to, old granary… come see the history.  When the chores are done, come in and enjoy the modern comforts of this stately Craftsman home with its grand foyer, inlaid hardwood floors, original pocket and parlor doors, and period lighting.  The kitchen is power packed with abundant cabinetry, plenty of working surface and a walk-in pantry.  The newer addition of the attached oversized 2 car garage brought the laundry to the main floor, more storage and built-in desk; now creating a “flex” room that can be a bedroom, office, or library. The second floor offers another living area, 2 bedrooms, a hall bath, and private owners’ suite. Up on the 3rd floor, (favorite among teenagers) is another bedroom, ¾ bath, and a bird’s eye view of McPherson proper!  Don’t miss the unfinished basement complete with egress window (for yet 1 more bedroom), rec room, mechanical & storage rooms, and roughed in bathroom (tub/shower unit ready to install).  Modern comforts include radiant floor heat, central heat, central air, Manabloc plumbing, newer water well and a new roof on the house (before closing).  Call Kristi Fowler today for your appointment now!
