Each month, SIUE Athletics and Prairie Farms Dairy Inc. will highlight an outstanding Cougar student-athlete who excels in competition and in the classroom.
The honoree for January 2021 is SIUE women's basketball student-athlete Allie Troeckler. The senior from Bethalto is majoring in criminal justice and boasts a 4.0 grade point average. On the court, Troeckler leads SIUE with 11.8 points and 7.7 rebounds per game, highlighted by a double-double performance in the Cougars' 2020-21 season opener at Purdue Fort Wayne.
Troeckler and SIUE women's basketball are scheduled to take the court for their conference home opener at 1 p.m. this afternoon, as the Cougars host Austin Peay at First Community Arena.
