One for the Records With their second place finish in the Omni Hotel Region IV Championships this fall, junior Karie Schlukebir and sophomore Linda Tran became the first Hoosiers doubles pair to advance to the finals since 1994. Seven years ago, second seeded Rachel Epstein and Jody Yin won the championship, defeating No. 1 seeded Lisa Tholen and Wendy Crabtree of Notre Dame.
Streaks Alive Tran and Schlukebir have won their last 14 matches in helping the Hoosiers win 11 straight doubles points during the dual season. After starting the Big Ten season 0-2, the duo reeled off eight straight regular season conference victories. They then picked up two in the Big Ten Tournament.
Schlukebir Picks Up National Honor Karie Schlukebir, a cancer survivor, was honored with the Wilma Rudolph Student Athlete Achievement Award from the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics.
The award is intended to honor five to 10 young men and women who have overcome great personal, academic, and/or emotional odds to achieve academic success while participating in intercollegiate athletic.
