Memphis, Tenn. -- - Junior women's tennis player Christina Ladyman (Perth, West Australia) received the Elma Roane Award, Thursday.
Ladyman, the Lady Tigers' No. 1 singles player for all three of her years at The U of M, also received the Top Tiger Award, the team's MVP award.
The Elma Roane Award is awarded to the female student-athlete who possesses drive, enthusiasm and determination, while maintaining a concern for others. The recipients' love of athletics should also be balanced with outside activities and they should possess both maturity and self-discipline and have a minimum 2.25 GPA.
All coaches may nominate a junior or senior female student-athlete and a selection committee selects the recipient based on their applications and a personal interview of each nominee. Past winners include Naima Ghilain (women's golf), Stephanie Long (women's tennis), Heather Newlon (women's basketball) and Betty Booker-Parks (women's basketball), the first recipient of the award.
Ladyman was also named to the C-USA second-team, while freshman Sabrina Lindemann was a third-team member.
