Rittenhouse Earns Academic Honor

Image

Katelyn Rittenhouse has anchored an Eastern defense that has allowed only four goals in the last 12 games.

Eastern University senior Katelyn Rittenhouse received recognition as an Academic All-District Performer for District 4. The honor is given to a select few who exemplify excellence on the field and in the classroom. Those honored in the eight districts will be eligible for recognition as Capital One Academic All-Americans.

The honor, which comes from CoSida, the national organization of Sports Information Directors, is the first for Rittenhouse. The Biochemistry major was a standout performer in her freshman campaign, but injuries kept her from competing as a sophomore and limited her action as a junior. After intensive work to rehabilitate, she has fully returned to form as a standout defender. She was selected as a First Team All-Freedom Conference back, and she has helped the Eagles to nine shutouts on the season. She scored her only career goal at Cabrini.

As much as she stands out on the field, she might be more impressive in the classroom. With a 3.94 GPA in Biochemistry, she intends to attend Medical School. A member of the Templeton Honors College, she will graduate a semester early. Her academic earnestness is confirmed by two summer internships. She spent one summer doing research in Guatemala, and this past summer she was involved in oncology research at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. 

A brief account of her summer research can be found here

Ritternhouse is the second Eastern University Women's Soccer player to earn Academic All-District Recognition. The CoSIDA Capital One All America Teams will be released later this year.
