ASU Student-Athletes Of The Month Announced

Dec. 3, 2008

Marina Mercer of the volleyball team and Shelly Lyons of the football team have been named Student-Athletes of the Month, the Office of Student-Athlete Development announced.

Mercer will earn her Bachelor's Degree in Management from the W.P. Carey School of Business this December and currently carries a 3.91 GPA. In addition to earning her degree, she is also working toward an International Business Certificate. She was able to earn her degree in only 3.5 years and will start Graduate classes in the Spring semester. Marina is always focused, stays optimistic and is a positive influence for her teammates and other student-athletes.

Lyons is one of 10 true freshmen playing football this season and does a very good job of combining the demands of football with those of his classes. He has a great attitude and is very committed to doing everything well. He volunteered at a local elementary school during P.E. activities and the teacher said he would be welcome back any time because the kids 'loved him.' Shelly appears on track to have a very successful career as a Sun Devil student-athlete, both on and off the football field.
