LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ – Junior women’s basketball guard Kamila Hoskova (Brno, Czech Republic/Sportovni Gymnazium Ludvika Danka) and junior wrestler Chad Walsh (Cherry Hill, NJ/Camden Catholic) have been named Rider University Athletes of the Month. Hoskova led the Broncs to a 7-2 record in January, while Walsh went 8-0 individually while leading Rider to a 7-1 dual record.

Hoskova averaged 12.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, while shooting 53.3 percent from the floor and 44.4 percent from behind the three-point arc for the month. She was named College Sports Madness MAAC Player of the Week on Jan. 9, following wins over Iona, Manhattan and Siena. She scored 22 points against the Gaels and 23 points against the Jaspers, while shooting a combined 19-of-24 (79.2%) in the two games.
