Freiberger Named IU Scholar-Athlete of the Week
Feb. 1, 2006
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - On a weekly basis, IUHOOSIERS.com will recognize top academic performances by Hoosier student-athletes with the IU Scholar-Athlete of the Week award. For the week ending Jan. 29, freshman hurdler Courtney Freiberger earned the honor as selected by IU Athletics' Academic Services.
"We always stress to student-athletes the importance of putting academics before athletics," director of track and field Randy Heisler said. "It is a great accomplishment for a freshman to receive this honor. Courtney has adjusted to the demands of being a Division I student-athlete and she has set an example for not just the other freshman, but for everyone on our team."
Last semester, Freiberger earned Alpha Beta recognition and became eligible for the IU Hutton Honors College. She also received a membership invitation in the Alpha Lambda Society, which is the honor society for first-year students.
"Courtney is a dedicated, hardworking young lady," academic advisor Korinth Patterson said. "Courtney is a joy to work with, she is always prepared for our meetings and seeks extra help when needed. She has been able to make a good adjustment from high school to college and puts in the time needed to succeed in the classroom and on the track. Only being a freshman, I'm sure we will be hearing a lot more about Courtney Freiberger academically and athletically."
