Student-athlete Alyssa Karel is making her mark on the basketball court and in the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing, and the Wisconsin State Journal shared her story in its January 19 edition. Karel, a senior and high-scoring guard, made the All-Big Ten second team last season, All-Big Ten preseason first team this year, and Academic All-Big Ten and Big Ten Distinguished Scholars each of the last two seasons. She needs another year of school to finish her nursing degree.
