Honigford named First Team Academic All-America in Women's Golf

Honor from College Sports Communicators

By Tim Glon

ONU Senior Grace Honigford (West Chester/Lakota East) has been named First Team Academic All-America for 2023-24 by the College Sports Communicators.

Honigford was named to the At-Large Team, which consists of student-athletes nationwide that compete in golf, lacrosse, field hockey, crew/rowing, ice hockey, rifle, gymnastics, beach volleyball or fencing.

She was also named Second Team Academic All-America by the CSC in 2022-23.

In her four seasons on the women's golf team, Honigford has rewritten the record books and now holds every record within the program.

A mechanical engineering major, she was named Ohio Northern's female winner of the prestigious Clyde Lamb Award, given annually to the top male and female student-athletes of each of the 10 Ohio Athletic Conference schools.


Ohio’s 988 lifeline has responded to nearly 340K in two years

The State of Ohio has announced that two years after its debut, the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline is a proven safety net for thousands of Ohioans each month who face emotional distress or thoughts of suicide.

Since its launch on July 16, 2022, the service has grown steadily. In that time, Ohio’s 19 call centers – the most of any state in the nation – have responded to nearly 340,000 calls, texts, and chats: an average of more than 14,000 contacts each month.

Ohio 988’s average speed-to-answer rate is 25 seconds, compared to 36 seconds nationally, and since its launch, the average amount of calls rolling over to the national 988 network is just 2%, reflecting a workforce capacity that allows the vast majority of calls from Ohioans to be answered in-state, by individuals with knowledge of local resources that can make a difference in a crisis.
