Cheney, Wash. – Sophomore women’s basketball student-athlete Jade Redmon and redshirt senior football student-athlete Ronnie Hamlin have been selected by the Eastern Washington University Athletics Department as its December Scholar-Athletes of the Month, as announced Tuesday, Dec. 2.
A Spokane native, Redmon carries a 3.72 grade point average as a chemistry major. Hamlin hails from Lacey and sports a 3.56 GPA with a double major in construction management and mechanical engineering.
Redmon played an integral role in helping EWU to its first winning record in November since the 2009-10 season. She became the first player in school history, male or female, to record a triple-double, finishing with 10 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 11 assists in the Eagles’ 86-58 win over Wichita State on Nov. 18. She earned co-Big Sky Player of the Week honors on Nov. 25 and is averaging 8.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game.
Hamlin had 19 tackles in November as he established a new school record for career tackles by passing the 432 J.C. Sherritt had from 2007-10. Hamlin now has 448 tackles in 51 career games (47 as a starter) to rank 13th in FCS history and second all-time in the Big Sky Conference. He capped the month by earning First Team All-Big Sky honors for the second time in his career.
