IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa field hockey sophomore Brynn Gitt has been named a 2012 Gladiator by SGI/NFHCA Division I Scholar of Distinction, the organization announced Wednesday.

Gitt, a Lumberton, N.J., native, earned the honor after achieving a cumulative grade point average of 3.90 or higher through the first semester of the 2012-13 academic year. Gitt, who is majoring in engineering, is one of seven Big Ten Conference student-athletes to receive the recognition.

Gitt was also named to the Gladiator by SGI/NFHCA Collegiate National Academic Squad for the second straight season Tuesday, while the team received the Division I National Academic Team Award for the third straight season.

Gitt saw action in nine games as a sophomore in helping the Hawkeyes to a 14-7 overall record and a NCAA Tournament berth. It was the team's 22nd NCAA appearance -- the most of any school as a member of the Big Ten Conference.
