Wayne Curry, a member of the USD football team, and Jenna Hatfield, a member of the USD volleyball team, will represent USD on May 25-29.
The NCAA National Student-Athlete Leadership Development Conference provides student-athletes from member institutions with a forum to openly discuss issues that may affect them on their campuses and in their communities.
It also provides participants with an opportunity to enhance their leadership, communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills; while also promoting better communication between student-athletes and their coaches, administrators, faculty and communities.
Curry, a sophomore from Tampa, FL, played in nine games this past season for USD. He recorded 18 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. He had the best performance of his career on Oct. 27, 2007 against Minnesota State when he posted six tackles and 3.5 sacks. Both totals are career-highs for Curry.
Hatfield, a junior from Norfolk, NE, was one of three Coyotes to record a .300 or better hitting percentage in 2007. She hit .314 on the year and committed just six hitting errors. She finished the season with 22 kills and 11 blocks.
More than 700 student-athletes from all across the nation will attend the conference, sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
