Bay Port senior Alec Ingold and Coleman senior C.J. Pillath were named recipients of the WIAA Scholar Athlete Award on Thursday.

Ingold and Pillath were among the 32 student-athletes in the state chosen for the award, which they’ll be presented with at a ceremony in Wausau on May 3.

Out of more than 800 nominations, the field was narrowed to four senior boys and four senior girls from each of the four WIAA divisions based on athletic and academic achievement.

Ingold has a 3.59 GPA and is a seven-time varsity letter winner. The University of Wisconsin football recruit participated in football, wrestling and baseball as a senior.

Ingold has been a class officer for three years, including class president. He has also been a member of the DECA Club and Youth Service Learning for three years.

Ingold earned Associated Press state player of the year honors after leading the Pirates to the Fox River Classic Conference title and the Division 1 state semifinals. He won the D1 state championship at 220 pounds in February during his third individual state wrestling appearance.

Pillath maintains a 3.56 GPA and is a 10-time varsity letter winner. The Coleman senior competes in football, wrestling and track and field.

Pillath has been a class officer for two years, including serving as class treasurer. He has also been a four-year member of the FFA, which he has been a treasurer and sentinel for.

Pillath has helped the school’s football team win an M&O Conference title and is a four-time state qualifier for track and field. He has placed at the individual state wrestling tournament three times and helped Coleman win Division 3 state titles in 2012 and 2014.
