JCA grad Jessie Bertino (’11) has earned herself a spot on the Division 1 Bradley University women’s tennis team. During her time here at JCA, the Lockport native was a standout player, having been a four-year letter in tennis and earning all-conference honors as a senior. Now a sophomore at Bradley University, the political science major has been named the Bradley Country Financial Scholar-Athlete of the Week (9/26/12). She earned this recognition after winning the consolation final Flight 3 Singles at the season-opening Redbird Roundup at ISU on September 21st.

To be considered for Scholar-Athlete of the Week, a student must be at least a sophomore in class standing and possess a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average, while displaying a level of athletic excellence.
