Women’s tennis standout Cornelia Carapcea is the headliner for an unprecedented class of 2009 student athletes at UMBC. Carapcea was the co-salutatorian of her graduating class after sustaining a 4.0 GPA with a double major in Financial Economics and Information Systems. She earned second-team All-America East honors in singles and doubles tennis during her sophomore and junior seasons. The ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American is not the only UMBC athlete who visits the gym and the library.
Tina Cantwell (women’s swimming and diving) joined Carapcea in earning the America East Scholar Athlete award, and former America East Champion and Sportsmanship Award recipient, Cavell Johnson, graduated with fellow men’s basketball star Darryl Proctor.
The 2009 senior Retrievers are winners, champions, honorees, and graduates. They’re also a bit nerdy, and that’s just fine with us.
