TUCSON - Four Wildcat student-athletes were cited as Student-Athletes of the Month for summer 2011, the first group of the academic year recognized for their scholastic achievement.

The staff of C.A.T.S. Academics Services elects the notables periodically during the year for outstandiing academic effort, improvement, overall classroom performance and citizenship qualities that serve in role modeling.

Erica Barnes of women's basketball, Dahlys Marshall of women's track and field, Jordin Mayes of men's basketball and Jonathan McKnight of football are the summer honorees.

"It's always nice to see evidence of the emphasis we're putting on academic achievement,' said Greg Byrne, UA director of athletics. "Student-athletes of the month or for a given period demonstrate the kind of success we expect from our entire student-athlete population."
