FORT WORTH, Texas -- Kishelle Paul and Kyle Winkler were named TCU Athletes of the Month, while Tom Hoge and Anna Sydorska collected TCU Scholar-Athletes of the Month for the month of May.

 

Kyle Winkler has proved to be a dominant pitching force for the Frogs as he helped lead them to their first ever NCAA Regional Championship. He gave up just 2 hits over eight innings for TCU as the Horned Frogs rolled to a 13-1 victory over Oregon State. Winkler has won his last four starts while improving to 7-0 on the year. The Freshman has recorded three of TCU's last four victories.

Kishelle Paul closed out the month claiming her second-consecutive Midwest Regional title in the 400-meter hurdles with a seasonal-best time of 58.00 seconds to automatically qualify for the NCAA Championships. Paul's time is currently the No. 14 ranked time on the national descending order list. By winning the event, the three-time All-American became the first TCU female student-athlete to win a regional in back-to-back years. The senior also won the Mountain West Conference 100-meter hurdles title with a seasonal-best time of 13.38 seconds last month. She will compete in the 400-meter hurdles and 4x400 at the 2009 NCAA Championships.

Tom Hoge led the men's golf team to a ninth-place finish at the NCAA National Championships by posting a 3-under-par score of 210 (70-70-70). Hoge recorded the best finish at a NCAA National Championship for a Horned Frog golfer since Adam Rubinson in 2002. As a team, the Frogs finished ninth overall and missed the Match Play session by four strokes after notching a score of 873 (299-285-289).

Anna Sydorska earned her fourth-consecutive final doubles ranking while at TCU, all of which were in the top-35 nationally. Sydorska earned sole possession of the TCU career doubles record, ending her career with an overall record of 106-43 in her four years in Fort Worth. The 2007 doubles All-American also wrapped her campaign as with the fifth-most combined wins in Frog history, going 179-87 in singles and doubles for TCU.
