KANNARKAT RECEIVES POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP

Former Lady Monarch tennis player Mily Kannarkat of Virginia Beach was awarded one of 58 spring sport postgraduate scholarships by the NCAA. The NCAA annually awards postgraduate scholarships to student-athletes who have excelled academically and athletically and who are in their last year of intercollegiate athletics competition.

To qualify for an NCAA postgraduate scholarship, a student-athlete must have an overall grade point average of 3.200 (4.000 scale) and must have performed with distinction as a member of the varsity team in the sport in which the student-athlete was nominated.

Kannarkat excelled both on the court and in the classroom in her four years with the Lady Monarch tennis program. Finishing her career with a 3.97 as a pre-med/biology major, Kannarkat was a two-time Verizon Academic All-American (Third Team) and a three-time ITA Academic All-American. She has also previously been named an Arthur Ashe Scholar-Athlete as well as Old Dominion's Jack Wilkins/James Howard Memorial Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2001.

The 2002 women's tennis team Most Valuable Player and Second Team All-CAA honoree Kannarkat opened the 2001-02 season with a top 32 finished at the Milwaukee Tennis Classic. She went on to close out her final year as a Lady Monarch with a 15-5 dual meet record, which included a 12-1 mark at fourth singles and victories in 13 of her last 14 matches. She graduated in May.
