Jewasko, Hill named Hathaway Academic Athletes of the Year
SAN ANTONIO — UTSA announced Wednesday that senior Kelsey Jewasko (volleyball) and sophomore Jeromie Hill (men's basketball) have been named the 2011-12 Will & Mary Hathaway Academic Athletes of the Year.
Meanwhile, Hill was named the Southland Student-Athlete of the Year and also earned second-team National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District 23 and all-conference accolades following his sophomore season. The Cairns, Australia, native averaged 12.5 points and a team-high 6.4 rebounds per game to help the Roadrunners to an 18-14 record and a third-place finish in the Southland West Division with a 10-6 mark. The 6-foot-8 forward shot 48.6 percent from the floor, including 40.7 percent (35-of-86) from behind the 3-point line, and recorded 48 assists, 30 steals and 22 blocks in starting all 32 contests. Hill carries a 3.18 GPA and he plans to major in business with an emphasis in events, sports and tourism marketing/management this fall.
The award is named in honor of the late Will & Mary Hathaway, who both were longtime UTSA Athletics supporters.
