The AlphaGraphics Armstrong Student-Athlete of the Month for November 2014 is freshman men's cross country runner Henning Schein.
AlphaGraphics and the Armstrong athletic department are teaming up to honor one student-athlete each month that best represents the Pirates' drive to succeed on the field and in the classroom. The Pirates have won the Peach Belt Conference Commissioner's Cup three straight years and the Presidential Academic Award the last two years and success can not happen without the efforts of our outstanding student-athletes.
A native of Vellmar, Germany, Schein made quite a splash for the Armstrong men's cross country team in 2014, helping the Pirates earn their first region ranking since reinstatement of the program as well as the first team meet win.
Individually, Schein finished 10th at the 2014 Peach Belt Conference Championships in Augusta, Ga., on November 8th, earning All-Conference honors. He was also named the Peach Belt Conference's Freshman of the Year, just the second Armstrong men's cross country runner ever to garner the award.
At the NCAA Southeast Regional on November 22nd, Schein finished 21st, earning All-Region honors - Armstrong's first All-Region runner since Paul McRae in 1999.
