NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The National Association of the Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced Monday that 243 Division II women's basketball student-athletes have been named 2013-14 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes. In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status. Seniors Megan Eve (SR, Scottsburg, Ind.), Mary Fitzgerald (SR, Livonia, Mich.) and Francesca McCarthy (SR, Terre Haute, Ind.) were named to the list from Holy Cross.

"It's a true credit to the student-athletes they have earned this honor," head coach Aimee Niespodziany stated. "These three are well-rounded student-athletes who will go on to be solid professionals. I couldn't be prouder of this accomplishment."

In addition to their successes in the classroom, this trio of seniors were a part of a senior class that won 33 games and the first-ever Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) postseason game during the 2011-2012 season. All three players closed out their careers having appeared in over 100 games.

The Saints wrapped up the 2013-2014 season with a record of 8-22 and hosted their first-ever CCAC postseason game.
