Rose, a Hutchinson native (Buhler High School), is already a four-time NCAA Division II All-American in track and field, with his final NCAA meet still to come, and holds the Washburn school record in the indoor weight throw, discus and hammer throw.

 Schuckman, a Wichita Bishop Carroll product, has scored 25 goals with nine assists over her first three WU seasons and helped lead the Ichabods to a 21-4-1 record last fall, earning third-team All-America recognition.

TopSports.news will honor outstanding Washburn athletes for the fourth time in conjunction with the Topeka Shawnee County Sports Awards and Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.

In 2023 Grant Bruner and Jaycee Ginter were named Washburn outstanding male and female athletes of the year. 

Washburn Athlete of the Year capsules:

BRADEN ROSE

A Washburn graduate student (biology major), Rose placed second at the 2024 NCAA Indoor Championships in the weight throw with a mark of 72 feet, 2.75 inches). Rose also finished second in the MIAA Indoor Championships after throwing the eighth-best mark in NCAA Division II history of 73-6.75 that also set a school record.

Rose's indoor All-American honor was Rose's fourth overall as he was also a first-team All-American in the discus in the 2023 NCAA Outdoor Championships and a second-team All-American at the 2022 outdoor championships prior to earning second-team All-American honors in the hammer in 2023.

Rose, a Buhler High product, will compete in the MIAA Outdoor Championships May 3-5 at Maryville, Mo. and is a NCAA provisional qualifier.

Rose completed his football eligibility in the 2022 season, twice earning All-MIAA recognition as a defensive tackle. Rose played in 45 games with 33 starts for the Ichabods, compiling 126 tackles with 25 tackles for loss, 16.5 sacks and a touchdown.

He was an MIAA Scholar Athlete for earning a 3.5 or higher grade point average and earning All-MIAA honors. 

KHLOE SCHUCKMAN

Schuckman, a junior marketing major, led the Ichabod offensive attack all the way to a first-ever National Championship match in the 2023 season, with Washburn finishing as the NCAA Division II national runnerup after a 1-0 loss to Point Loma.

The 5-foot-7 forward, a former standout at Wichita Bishop Carroll, scored a team-high 11 goals on the year and dished out five assists for 27 points.

Schuckman earned All-MIAA first-team honors for a second straight year and was a United Soccer Coaches All-Central Region first-team selection and a third-team All-American.

Schuckman was named a USC Scholar All-American while also earning All-MIAA Scholar Athlete recognition for having a 3.5 or higher grade point average and earning All-MIAA honors.
