FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU Athletics Department announced its monthly student-athlete awards for the month of February on Tuesday.

On the men's side, Kevin Langford was named Male Athlete of the Month, while Keith Conlon was selected as Male Scholar-Athlete of the Month.

For the women, Virgil Hodge was tabbed Female Athlete of the Month and Ana Cetnik was named Female Scholar-Athlete of the Month.

Langford, a sophomore forward on the men's basketball team, averaged a team-high 18.6 points per game over seven contests in February. The Fort Worth native had four 20-plus point games, which were the first of his career. Langford scored a career-high 24 points in the Frogs' 77-58 win over Wyoming, 23 against league champion BYU and was instrumental in TCU's victory over No. 14 Air Force. Langford also pulled down 4.9 rebounds per game and shot 45.2 percent from the floor (42-of-93) and 66.7 percent from 3-point range (8-of-12).

Conlon, a senior on the baseball team, hit .433 during the first month of play with two home runs and eight RBIs. Conlon ranked third in the team with 13 base hits, including three doubles and one triple. The Dallas, Texas, native started just nine games, but led the team with 10 runs scored and five stolen bases. Conlon also played flawless defense, earning no errors in 17 chances.

Hodge, a junior sprinter on the track and field squad, won Mountain West Conference Indoor titles in the 60 and 200 meters, while also running a leg on TCU's 4x400 relay team that won a conference title at the conference indoor championships on Feb. 23-24.

The Basseterre, St. Kitts, native finished the month of February with three NCAA provisional marks in the 60 meters and two provisional marks and an automatic in the 200 meters.

Cetnik, a senior on the women's tennis team, paired with Anna Sydorska to notch a ranking of No. 3 in doubles play, which is the highest doubles ranking in TCU history.
