April 17, 2009

Tennessee baseball player Steve Crnkovich has been selected as UT's CAREacter Star Athlete of the Week. The CAREacter Program is based on a five-point star system that includes the basic traits of a true champion, whether on or off the field. Those traits are attitude, character, grades, community service and performance.

A junior pitcher from Downers Grove, Ill., Crnkovich has appeared in seven games for the Volunteers this season. In 8-2/3 innings, the right-hander has an 8.31 ERA while striking out 10 and walking eight.

This semester, Crnkovich is participating in the VOLScholar Program for academic and citizenship-building and wears the VOLScholar logo on his uniform as the holder of a 3.0 or better grade-point average. The junior is majoring in mechanical engineering.

Every two weeks coaches select one student-athlete as their school's "Star Athlete of the Week" based on the aforementioned five criteria. As a reward for their accomplishments, honorees will be recognized each week by their local media and presented with a T-shirt and a letter acknowledging them as their county's "Star Athlete of the Week."
