IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa Student-Athlete Academic Services has recognized senior Thomas Gilman (Wrestling) and junior Melissa Zurawski (Women’s Gymnastics) as February’s male and female student-athletes of the month.
This honor, voted by their peers, recognizes student-athletes who have excelled not only in their sport, but in the classroom as well.
Gilman, a history major, was undefeated in the month of February going 5-0 with two pins and two major decisions. Three of his five victories came over top 10 opponents. Gilman won his first Big Ten Championship on March 5, defeating Nebraska’s Tim Lambert, 4-0, to claim the 125-pound title.
