Every year the NAIA names scholar-athletes to represent them on the Daktronics NAIA Scholar-Athletes list. To be eligible for nomination a student-athlete must be a junior or senior in academic standing, attend an NAIA nominating institution for one full year, and have a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. Seven student-athletes were chosen to represent the women's basketball and the California Pacific Conference. Two Pioneers were chosen among the honorees.

Junior guard Carla Bartlett and senior guard Julie Ford were among the athletes chosen as scholar athletes this year. They helped lead the Pioneers to a 2-22 overall record and 2-10 conference record. The Pioneers concluded the season with a loss to Menlo College in the first round of the Cal Pac tournament.

The Pioneers are joined by Lesley Vodicska (HNU), Rachel Estabrook and Janessa McGirt (BU), Corie Thompson (MC), and Maria Viola (WJU), as representatives from the California Pacific Conference.

Congratulations to all athletes on their very noteworthy achievement.
