ISU Honors Three Student-Athletes

AMES, Iowa--NCAA champion wrestler Zach Roberson and three-time all-Big 12 Conference guard Jake Sullivan were named Iowa State's male co-student-athletes of the year and All-American gymnast Janet Anson was named female ISU student-athlete of the year, the ISU athletic awards committee announced Monday.

Roberson, a senior from Overland Park, Kan., capped off an impressive career on the mat by winning the 2004 NCAA 133-pound championship. The three-time All-American finished the season with a 31-3 mark and ended his career with 106 victories, which ties for 23rd on the Cyclones' all-time win list.

Sullivan goes down in ISU men's basketball history as one of its all-time greatest shooters. The Oakdale, Minn., native ended his career ranked No. 7 on the ISU all-time scoring list (1,810) after averaging 14.6 ppg and helping ISU advance to the NIT semifinals in New York in 2003-04. He holds ISU and Big 12 career marks in free-throw percentage and is the seventh-best free-throw shooter in NCAA history (89.6 percent).

Anson, a freshman sensation from Kansas City, Mo., had an outstanding rookie season for the Cyclones, earning Big 12 Newcomer of the Year honors. She garnered All-America honors in the vault, all-around and floor exercise and scored a perfect 10 on the vault, becoming only the third ISU gymnast and first freshman to record a perfect score.
