Cross country and track athlete Jessica Mildes, from Chattaroy, Washington, was named Gonzaga’s Female Scholar Athlete of the Year.

Mildes, who came to Gonzaga as a transfer student in fall 2014, earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting with a perfect GPA and this past summer gained admission into GU’s Master of Science in Taxation program while finishing her undergraduate work last fall.

She was named to the WCC All-Academic team twice and last season was named an Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Mildes, who walked in the undergraduate ceremony in May 2016 as an early graduate, has qualified to represent Gonzaga in the 10,000-meter semifinals at the 2017 NCAA West Preliminaries May 25 in Austin, Texas.
