Adamson named 2022-23 C-USA Scholar Athlete of the Year

DALLAS — UTSA junior Oreoluwa Adamson has been named the 2022-23 Conference USA Women's Track & Field Scholar Athlete of the Year, the league office announced Thursday.
Adamson joins fellow Roadrunners Hailey Atwood (women's basketball) and Abby Balli (women's cross country) as well as 13 other student-athletes from across the league who were selected by C-USA faculty athletics representatives as the top scholar athlete in each conference-sponsored sport based on academic achievement (GPA), athletic achievement and service. In fact, UTSA matched Middle Tennessee, Rice and UAB with the most honorees (three) on this year's list of award recipients.
Adamson has accumulated a 3.87 GPA as a psychology major with a minor in intelligence and security studies. A native of London, England, she is a two-time USTFCCCA All-Academic Athlete and a three-time C-USA Commissioner's Academic Medal recipient and Honor Roll member. Recently voted to the C-USA All-Academic Team, she has been named to the UTSA Dean's List (3.75-3.99 semester GPA) four times and the President's List (4.0 semester GPA) and Honor Roll (3.5-3.75 semester GPA) once apiece. 
A four-time conference medalist in the horizontal jumps this year, Adamson swept the long and triple jump titles at the C-USA Outdoor Championships in May. She won the long jump with a school-record leap of 6.46 meters (21-2.5) and secured silver in the triple jump at the league indoor in February, as she tallied a total of 38 points in the two conference meets in 2023. Adamson garnered second-team All-America accolades with a 15th-place finish in the long jump at the NCAA Indoor and was an honorable mention All-American outdoors after finishing 23rd.
Adamson is involved in numerous community service activities, including serving on executive boards for the UTSA Black Athletes Striving for Excellence (BASE) and Athletics Inclusive Excellence Board. She has volunteered her time as a peer mentor, election volunteer and with the MLK March, Women of Honor Fear Factor, Black Student Union and BASE 'Hood' Jeopardy Night, BASE Game Night, Roadrunners Give Back, CANtoberfest, Roadrunners in Action Voter Info Distribution, Black Health Professions and BASE Field Day, Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner and on panels such as Life as a Student-Athlete and Untangling the Truth: A Discussion on Black Hair.
