SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Fort LeBoeuf graduate and Slippery Rock University women’s tennis freshman student-athlete Lindsey Fadden has been named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Women’s Tennis Champion Scholar for the 2021 season, the league office announced Friday.
The PSAC Champion Scholar awards are modeled after the NCAA’s Elite 89 award and honor the student-athlete with the top GPA who is competing in each of the PSAC’s 23 team championships.
Fadden has maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA throughout her collegiate career and has made the Dean’s List four times while working towards her bachelor’s degree in business administration.
On the court, Fadden enjoyed a great season in 2021 as The Rock’s top reserve. She went 1-0 in singles competition courtesy of a near shutout victory against California University (Pa.) in addition to teaming up with Olivia Warner and sister Lauren Fadden to go 3-1 in doubles play. All three of Fadden’s doubles wins came against PSAC West foes.
Fadden is the 13th SRU student-athlete to receive the award since the program was instituted in 2011-12. She is the second Slippery Rock women’s tennis student-athlete to earn the honor; Viola Lugmayr received the award in 2018-19.
