Six Falcon Women Basketball Student-Athletes Earn WIAC All-Academic Honor.

Student-athletes at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls earned the 2009-10 Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference All-Academic Award for their outstanding performance in the classroom.

During the 2009-10 academic year, nearly 50 percent of the student-athletes competing in the conference achieved a 3.0 grade point average or better (on a 4.0 scale) and were named to the Scholastic Honor Roll.

Individuals named to the Scholastic Honor Roll receive a certificate.

“This is another example of how engaged Falcon student-athletes are regarding the academic rigors of college life,” said Athletic Director, Roger Ternes. “They are model students for the young men and women who attend the University of Wisconsin-River Falls to emulate”.

Women’s Head Coach Cindy Holbrook said “It is a great honor for our student athletes. We expect all our players to excel in the classroom and the court.”

The six student athlets from the 2009-2010 season include:

Melissa Carmody   G 5-7 Fr.  Barneveld

 

Brittany Gregorich   F 5-9 Fr.  Altoona

The University of Wisconsin – River Falls women’s basketball team announced its 2010 recruiting class

Posted by Falcons Fan on August 22, 2010

The University of Wisconsin – River Falls women’s basketball team announced its 2010 recruiting class today. It will give the Falcons a bigger presence in the frontcourt and add intensity in the backcourt. This year’s class includes eight new freshman.

“We are very excited about the new additions to the Falcon program,” said UW-River Falls Falcon Head Coach Cindy Holbrook. “The forwards bring added height and rebounding.  The guards will add playmaking ability, aggressiveness and ability to shoot the three. The versatility of the class is very good. We have players that can play multiple positions for us.  The best part of this class is that they continue the tradition of being quality people and student-athletes.”

Coach Holbrook added “We feel their individual talents will mesh well together and with our returning players, and that they will help us take another step forward in the WIAC and our bid for a NCAA tournament appearance. They come with a winning attitude as evidenced by their successful high school programs they come from. Collectively, they will help continue the positive momentum our program established with our recently completed record-setting season.”
