April 21, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU equestrian program had seven student-athletes named to the prestigious Beval Saddlery Academic Team Thursday, including two first-team honorees.

Earning first-team recognition were Erin Gillette and Kari Hancock. Senior NCEA All-American Chantz Stewart was the lone representative on the second-team, while Brooke Boyle, Carley Montemuro, Rylee Morgan and Jayme Omand brought home honorable mention certificates. Both Gillette and Hancock were repeat first-team selections, while Gillette closed out her career as a three-time NCEA Academic All-American.

In addition, 11 student-athletes were named to the La Hacienda Academic Honor Roll Thursday. Elizabeth Bohn was joined on the list by Emelie Burgess, Danielle Dirkx, Carly Epp, Julia Finn, Gillette, Kate Hamel, Hancock, Colby Plott, Stewart and Conner West.

In the past four years alone, TCU has not only combined to have 15 student-athletes awarded Academic First-Team honors by the NCEA, but also had 43 named to the prestigious Honor Roll.

To earn first-team recognition, student-athletes must have competed in a minimum of 70 percent of their school's meets and earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5, while maintaining full-time enrollment in the previous spring and fall semesters, respectively.
