Sweet 16 + 4.0 GPA = No. 1 in D-III
Near the end of her stellar final season with the Carthage women’s basketball team, Stephanie Kuzmanic ’14 received another major honor. She was named Capital One Academic All-American Player of the Year for NCAA Division III. Ms. Kuzmanic, who graduated in May 2014 with a degree in exercise and sport science, was the first Carthage athlete to win this national award. She completed her studies with a 4.0 GPA.
“Stephanie worked exceptionally hard, both on and off the court,” said Carthage women’s basketball coach Tim Bernero, “and she certainly deserves this recognition. She has displayed excellence in every area a student-athlete could, and I couldn’t be prouder of her and how she represents herself, her family, and Carthage College.”
