FORT WORTH, Texas -- Catherine Matranga has been named TCU's Female Student-Athlete of the Month for April, while Elin Emanuelsson is the Horned Frogs' Female Scholar-Athlete of the Month.
Matranga had TCU's top score in both tournaments as the Frogs posted a pair of top-five finishes. The Fort Worth native placed 14th individually with a 4-over-par 220 at the Northwestern Invitational. Mantranga then led the Mountain West Conference Championships for two rounds before finishing 10th.
A 3.2 cumulative grade-point average is required to be eligible for Scholar-Athlete of the Month.
Emanuelsson, a native of Nacka, Sweden, placed 30th at the Northwestern Invitational as the Frogs were fifth out of 14 teams. She was 17th, TCU's second-best finish, at the MWC Championships.
TCU begins play Thursday at the NCAA Central Regional in Bryan, Texas. The Frogs will be making their 11th consecutive postseason appearance.
