Bertke named Buckeye Charters Athlete of Distinction for October
Dayton, OH – The Athletic Department is pleased to announce that Sophomore Abigail Bertke (SO – Dixie H.S.) has received the Buckeye Charters Student-Athlete of Distinction Award for the month of October.
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 Sophomore Abigail Bertke of the Volleyball team. Abigail has been active with the team this fall in the community and continues to lead the way in the Classroom.
She earned OCCAC All-Academic honors last season and was a member of the 2015-16 Sinclair Volleyball team that earned a prestigious team honor of NJCAA All-Academic Team for an overall team GPA of over 3.0 for the year.
As a sophomore, she has been a leader on the court helping the Pride to a 2nd place finish in the conference with a 12-2 record. Sinclair also spent time in the NJCAA Division II Volleyball Top 20 polls and finished the regular season at 26-8. Bertke was part of the sophomore class that rebounded from a disappointing freshman finish to a 2nd place OCCAC finish and a District Tournament runner-up conclusion.
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
