Jenna Hague, a member of the Ball State women's golf team, and football student-athlete Keith Wenning were named the Mid-American Conference's Scholar-Athletes of the Week.

Hague, a junior with a 3.667 grade-point average on Ball State's 4.0 scale as a business major, won The 2013 Preview last week to tie the MAC record for career victories by a women’s golfer. She finished the 36-hole event with a 3-over par total of 147 at Hawthorns Golf & Country Club, the site of next spring’s MAC Championships. Hague won by two strokes in a field of 94 golfers for her second victory of the fall. It was the sixth career victory in just 28 career events for Hague, who matched former Western Michigan golfer Erica Bieniek and former Kent State golfer Martina Gillen for the top spot on the MAC all-time wins list. She also led Ball State to a runner-up team finish at The Preview in a field of 16 teams, eight of which were MAC schools. For her performance, Hague was named the MAC Golfer of the Week for the seventh time in her career. Dating back to last season, she has now finished among the top 10 in six straight tournaments.

Wenning, a senior quarterback with a 3.340 GPA as a business major, is the only quarterback in the country to have thrown for at least 300 years in seven games this season.  He led the Cardinals to a 27-24 victory over Kent State last Saturday, which improved the team's record to 6-1 overall and 3-0 in the MAC.  Against Kent State, Wenning completed 23-of-46 passes for 305 yards and four touchdowns to help the Cardinals become bowl eligible for the third consecutive season.  With the Cardinals trailing 24-20 and just 3:12 left in the game, Wenning engineered a five-play, 57-yard drive which was capped by a game-winning seven-yard touchdown pass to Willie Snead.  

It marked the second time for Hague and Wenning to be named the MAC Scholar-Athlete of the Week this season.
