IPFW women's basketball player Amanda Hyde was named the Summit League Women's Scholar Athlete of the Year by the conference today.

The senior-to-be is the first Mastodon to win the Summit League's academic award, which is the most prestigious individual honor given by the league.

Hyde had a 4.0 grade-point average as a junior. She is majoring in math and math teaching and is also pursuing a minor in psychology.

Hyde had already earned numerous academic awards as she was named the Division I-AAA ADA Scholar-Athlete of the Year, a Capital One Academic All-American, a member of the women's basketball Summit League Academic All-League Team, the Commissioner's List of Academic Excellence and a Summit League Distinguished Scholar on the Academic Honor Roll.

The 5-foot-10 guard averaged a league-high 18.6 points and was named the Summit League player of the year last season. Hyde also averaged 4.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

South Dakota's Jeff Mettler (cross country and track & field) was named the male Summit League Scholar-Athletes of the Year in a vote by the league's faculty athletic representatives.
