This month we would like to honor Sophomore Maya Murray of the Women’s Basketball team. Maya has been very active with the team this past fall and winter with visits to the Dayton VA, serving Thanksgiving dinner.
She has continued to lead the way in the Classroom earning over 3.0 GPA this past semester and is on pace to earn Academic All-Conference honors at the end of the semester.
Maya played in all 27 games this season and has been a part of the core group of sophomores that has help set a new standard of excellence under new Head Coach Victoria Jones.
Special thanks go out to Buckeye Charters for helping establish this monthly award that honors those student-athletes that are great in the three C’s. Buckeye Charters have been providing quality and reliable transportation for student-athletes around the region as well as many other groups for over 22 years. They have proven over the many years of partnership with the athletic department that they also value the commitment to high standards, and this is why we are pleased to name this monthly award: The Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction
