SportsMX/NDIAA January 2016 Athletes of the Month

SportsMX and National Deaf Interscholastic Athletic Association (NDIAA) present the monthly "SportsMX/NDIAA Athletes of the Month" awards. This award recognizes High School athletes across the country that has made significant impact on their teams not just on the field but in academics, leadership, and character as well.

SportsMX and NDIAA congratulate Rebecca Adeyinka, Tredynn Selvog, and Brittany Skjeveland on their selection as "SportsMX/NDIAA Athletes of the Month" for January 2016.

Rebecca willingly took the reins of the Lady Colts basketball program as the lone senior on the team. The young team steadily improved during the season with Rebecca’s guidance and leadership. Despite having a height disadvantage at 5’3” as a Forward/Center, Rebecca averaged an impressive 11.6 rebounds per game. She chalked up two double-doubles in January with her first one against Community Academy of Philadelphia where she had 13 points and 13 rebounds. The second double-double came against New York School for the Deaf in which Rebecca scored 10 points and snagged 13 rebounds.

“It has been awesome to see Rebecca’s skills and leadership ability blossom in the last four years. As a captain this year, she was a very important part of our team’s success and had a lot to do with the improvement of our younger players." - New Jersey Basketball Head Coach Maria Morrongiello

Tredynn was the driving force in ending Washington’s 36-year championship drought at the Western States Basketball Classic. As a do-it-all player, he led his team to a 6-0 record at the round-robin tournament. While leading his team, Tredynn put up impressive stats along the way with 97 points, 24 rebounds, 14 steals, 10 assists, and earning All-Tournament honors. During the month of January, Tredynn averaged 18.2 points per game with his best game against Three Rivers Christian; a 59-45 win in which he had 33 points and four steals.

"Tredynn had some monster games for us. He was a tremendous athlete all season; we couldn't take him off the court. His composure and athleticism is remarkable." - Washington Basketball Head Coach James Forncrook

Brittany wrapped up her high school basketball career on a high note notching two career bests in January. In a game against Indianapolis Metropolitan, Brittany scored career high 22 points with a 85% field goal average and dished out eight assists. Then two days later at the Allie Jean Hale Classic against Bloomington Lighthouse, Brittany grabbed career high 16 rebounds. The linchpin for Brittany was earning the Indiana High School Athletic Association All-Sectional honors. More significantly, she was the glue that kept the team together through an injury-riddled season with her leadership and dedication.

“Brittany is a remarkable and loyal teammate. She is a good person who we know will go on to become a great woman. Her legacy will stay with our program and thanks for the incredible ride!” - Indiana Basketball Head Coach Amanda Huser
