Right before the Ashland University women’s basketball team plays in the Elite Eight, the Eagles picked up another award.

Senior Sam Chable was awarded the Division II Elite 90 award winner. The Elite 90 honors a student at schools across the country that competes for a national championship and excels in the classroom.

The Elite 90 award is presented to the student with the highest cumulative grade point average at the site of the NCAA championships.

Through the end of 2022, as an exercise science major, Chable achieved a 4.0 GPA.

In the 2021 postseason, Chable tied the Ashland program record by hitting nine threes in one game.

The last player to earn the award within the women’s basketball program was Julie Worley in 2017-18.

The Eagles are set to play the UT Tyler Patriots at 7 p.m. EST on Monday, March 20.
