Gebisso, from Augsburg, Germany, is a computer science and mathematics major and maintains a GPA above 3.8. He was the runner-up in the 1,500 meters at the A-10 Championships, and also ran a leg on the Billikens' 4x1600-meter relay that registered a school record at the Drake Relays.
Kowalczyk, a neuroscience major from Peru, Illinois, has above a 3.85 GPA. He finished sixth in the hammer throw, 12th in the discus and 13th in the shot put at the A-10 Championships. Kowalczyk registered PRs in all three events during the outdoor season.
