The Rutherfordton, N.C., native was named to the East Carolina Chancellor's List every semester she attended the university and was one of three co-captains for the Pirates last season, helping the program to its first-ever C-USA regular season title.

Additionally, she gained acceptance into the medical school at UNC-Chapel Hill, beginning in the fall.
The C-USA Scholar-Athlete Award is presented to the top student-athlete in each conference-sponsored sport and is based on academic achievement (GPA), athletic achievement and service. Nine of C-USA's 12 institutions produced at least one scholar athlete winner.
