LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Nine players from The University of Tennessee at Martin softball team have been recognized by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association as scholar-athletes for the 2012-13 academic year.

Among the Skyhawks to be named are Leah Taylor, Morgan Lewis, Kelsey Dixon, Lindsey Feigl, Kenzi Tate, Deven Wilson, Casey Vincent, Sam McClure and Becca Williams.

In order to be recognized as a scholar-athlete, one must have acquired a 3.50 GPA for the year to quality for the individual honor.

“It’s quite amazing to see so many of your girls be named to such a list,” said UT Martin head softball coach Donley Canary. “We strive to recruit well rounded student-athletes that have the same drive in the classroom as on the playing field. Our assistant coaches work very hard with these young women and I am glad that these young ladies can be rewarded for the dedication to academics.”
