SUNY Cortland senior women’s swimmer Jessica Evans and junior women’s gymnast Elise Konikoff have been named the SUNYAC Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award winners in their respective sports for the 2012-13 school year. Both are Hamburg residents. The award is given to one student-athlete in the conference, from each sport, who has the highest cumulative grade point average, over a minimum of three semesters, among all first-team or second-team all-conference selections.

Evans is a physical education major with a 3.89 cumulative grade point average. This past winter, she earned second-team All-SUNYAC honors with a runner-up finish in the 100-yard butterfly at the SUNYAC Women’s Swimming Championships. She also swam on a 200-yard freestyle relay team that won the SUNYAC title and earned honorable mention All-America honors at the NCAA Division III Championships. She swam on both school-record breaking 800-yard freestyle relay and 200-yard freestyle relay teams. She was the SUNYAC champion in the 100-yard butterfly as both a sophomore and junior.

Konikoff is a business economics major with a 3.85 overall GPA entering the spring semester. She was the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III balance beam tri-champion this past season. As a sophomore, she won the ECAC vault title and placed second on balance beam.
