ECSU honors Victoria Pfohl as scholar athlete

The Eastern Connecticut State University E-Club designated Victoria Pfohl from Trumbull as one of its 2014-15 outstanding scholar-athlete award winners.

Those honored are junior and seniors with a cumulative 3.50-plus grades point average.

A three-year letterwinner and guard on the Eastern women’s basketball team, Pfohl, a Trumbull High product, was one of three recipients of the Holly E. Zimmerman Memorial Award, which recognizes a junior or senior physical education or sports and leisure management major for contributions to the athletic program, and who display Zimmerman’s qualities of academic determination, loyalty and thoughtfulness.

Pfohl achieved All-Little East Conference Academic Honor Roll honors in the winter.

She came off the bench in 25 games for the LEC regular-season co-champions and tournament titlist, which finished 22-9 and reached the NCAA Division III Sweet 16.
