Scholar Athletes of the Month Announced

Sept. 30, 2015

FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU has announced that Joey Hunt of football and Lauren Sajewich of women’s soccer have been named Scholar Athletes of the Month for September. 

Joey Hunt, a senior from El Campo, Texas, has made a tremendous contribution on the field and in the classroom. Beginning as a representative in National Honor Society and an Academic All-State honoree in high school, the center has continued to exhibit his commitment to academics throughout his career at TCU.

Two consecutive years in a row, Hunt served as a consistent starter and earned academic recognition among the Big 12. In 2013 and 2014, he was selected for second-team Academic All-Big 12.

In 2014, the lineman earned the Big 12 academic recognition among 64 second-team candidates. Last season, Hunt was selected by conference coaches and Associated Press for second-team All-Big 12 honors. In the same season, Hunt earned a TCU Scholar-Athlete award from the National Football Foundation’s Gridiron Club of Dallas.

Next up, the Frogs take on the Texas Longhorns Saturday, Oct. 3 at 11 a.m. in Fort Worth, Texas.

Sajewich claimed the highest GPA on her high school soccer team and continues to be recognized on the collegiate level for her academic success.

The midfielder based out of Frankfort, Illinois, was awarded her sophomore year as a second-team CoSIDA Academic All-District VII performer. She was selected among seven candidates for the award.

Last season, Sajewich locked in 1,750 minutes playing the entirety of all 16 matches.

The junior has logged as many hours on the field as she has in the classroom. She has sustained a 4.0 GPA as a movement science major.

The Horned Frogs face the West Virginia Mountaineers Friday, Oct. 2 at 6 p.m. in Morgantown, West Virginia.
