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

 

Tiffany Gregorich   G 5-5 So.  Altoona
