Cheney, Wash. – Freshman women’s basketball student-athlete Delaney Hodgins and sophomore track and field student-athlete Trenton Osborn have been selected by the Eastern Washington University Athletics Department as its April Scholar-Athletes of the Month, the department announced Friday, Apr. 3.
A Pasco, Wash., native, Hodgins owns a 3.6 grade point average as a health services administration major. Osborn hails from East Wenatchee, Wash., and sports a 3.7 GPA as a dental hygiene major.
Hodgins wrapped up a phenomenal first season in Cheney by earning Big Sky Outstanding Freshman honors and helped the program to its first-ever postseason victory, a 67-65 triumph over Pac-12 member Washington State in the first round of the WNIT. She scored in double figures in Eastern’s final two regular season games before using a nine-point, six-rebound, three-assist effort to propel the Eagles past Northern Arizona in the first round of the Big Sky Tournament.
Osborn won the long jump at the Big Sky Conference Indoor Championships with a personal best jump of 24-3 3/4 to rank third in school history. He led the conference for the duration of the indoor season before claiming his first-ever title.
