Schroeder named Buckeye Charters Athlete of Distinction for November
Dayton, OH – The Athletic Department is pleased to announce that Freshman Amanda Schroeder (FR – Carroll H.S.) has received the Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction Award for the month of November.
Each month the Athletic Department in conjunction with Buckeye Charters, will select a Student-Athlete that has been a leader in all three categories; Community Service, Classroom and Competition – also known as the 3 C’s.
This month we would like to honor Freshman Amanda Schroeder of the Women’s Basketball team. Amanda has not only been active with the team this fall in the community but she continues to lead the way in the Classroom and on the court.
The month of November is extremely busy for all the Sinclair student-athletes and especially the women’s basketball team. On Thanksgiving Day, members of the women’s basketball team spent most of the day at the Dayton Convention Center volunteering at the annual Feast of Giving.
In the classroom Amanda, is on track to earn OCCAC All-Academic Honors as well as NJCAA recognition at the end of the year.
The team is off to an exciting start winning 6 of their first 8 games in November to start the season. She has also set the pace by averaging 27 points and 7 rebounds per game. The 27.4 points per game ranks her 2nd in the nation for Division II Women’s Basketball and the 91.3% from the free throw line, ranking her number 1 in the nation.
Special thanks go out to Buckeye Charters for this award that honors those student-athletes that are great in the three C’s. Buckeye Charters have been providing quality and reliable transportation for student-athletes around the region as well as many other groups for over 22 years. They have proven over the many years of partnership with the athletic department that they also value the commitment to high standards, and this is why we are pleased to name this monthly award: The Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction
