Dumiak Recognized as Patriot League Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Just days after being announced as the Patriot League Player of the Year, American University guard Jen Dumiak has been selected as the Corvias Patriot League Women's Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, as released by the league on Thursday.

Dumiak, who was also voted to the five-member Academic All-Patriot League team, joins two other Eagles who have earned the award—two-time honoree Liz Hayes (2007, 2008) and three-time recipient Alexis Dobbs (2012-14).

A native of Carlsbad, Calif., Dumiak is currently pursuing her master's degree in mathematics, holding a 4.0 GPA. Announced as a Capital One Academic All-America first-team selection last month, Dumiak graduated in just three years with dual degrees in mathematics and economics, compiling an undergraduate GPA of 3.95.

On the court, Dumiak has guided the Eagles to the regular-season Patriot League title with a 16-2 mark in league play. She is averaging 17.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game, while also shooting 51.5 percent from the field and 92.5 percent at the free throw line. She leads the league in assists per game, assist/turnover ratio and free throw percentage, while ranking second in scoring, field goal percentage and minutes per game.

American, which has compiled a 21-8 overall record this season, will host its Patriot League quarterfinal contest on Friday, March 6. The top-seeded Eagles will face eighth-seed Lafayette in a 7 p.m. contest in Bender Arena.
