Roane State Community College sophomore basketball player Kassidi Freeman of Madisonville earned top academic honors in the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association, or TCCAA.
Six additional players also received recognition for their academic performance.
Freeman had the highest grade-point average (3.83) of any women’s basketball player in the TCCAA. She was named a TCCAA Distinguished Scholar-Athlete.
Roane State sophomores Cayla Oglesby (Lake City) and Danielle Slack (Madisonville), and freshmen Haley Cornellison (Kingston), Madison Hampton (Dayton), Amber Hudgens (Sparta), and Sydney Marek (Cookeville), also received Distinguished Scholar-Athlete recognition.
“I’m very proud of how well our athletes performed academically,” Roane State head coach Monica Boles said. “Their hard work and dedication helped them excel both on the court and in the classroom.”
