Myers Voted SAC Scholar-Athlete for Women's Tennis
ROCK HILL, SC -- The South Atlantic Conference on Tuesday announced the selection of Catawba senior Olivia Myers (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) and Tusculum junior Lukas Winkelmann and as its Scholar-Athletes of the Year for tennis. The SAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award, presented to one student-athlete in each of the conference’s 18 championship sports, recognizes excellence in academics, athletics, service and leadership.
Myers, a biology major, holds a 3.98 GPA at Catawba. Her academic accolades include the SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, the Alphi Chi Honor Society, Phi Epsilon Honor Society, Gamma Sigma Epsilon Chemistry Honor Society, and a selection as a Junior Marshal. She was also voted as the SAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in women’s cross country.
Myers had a strong season on the court for the Indians, going 16-6 in singles contests and 6-5 in doubles.
On campus, Myers serves as Co-President of Retreat Leadership Corp, head of the Parking Committee and chairman of Beta Beta Beta, and is a past class president and a current class senator. She volunteers with North Davidson Veterinary Hospital, Faithful Friends Animal Shelter, Reeds Community Swim Club, United Way Day of Caring and Operation Christmas Child.
Winkelmann – who was also the SAC Men’s Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2013 – carries a 3.97 GPA majoring in pre-medicine. He has earned selections to the Capital One Academic All-America Team, the ITA All-Academic Team, the SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, the Tusculum’s President’s List, the Charles Oliver Gray Honors List and the Alpha Chi Honor Society.
Winkelmann excels on the court as well, earning SAC Player of the Year selections in each of the past two seasons. The team captain went a perfect 23-0 in singles matches and 19-2 in doubles play, helping guide Tusculum to an 18-5 record.
Off the court, Winkelmann is a member of the Pioneer Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, and has volunteered with the TC haunted house, the local “Tennis in Schools” project, the Alphi Chi Angel Tree project, holiday adopt-a-family events, and with a local hospital.
