Milford High School senior girls basketball player Hannah Thierauf was recently selected as the recipient of this year’s Don Hughes/Greater Cincinnati Basketball Hall of Fame Scholarship. The $500 award will be used by Thierauf next year when she begins her academic and athletic career at Roosevelt University in Chicago.
Thierauf’s application was cited by the GCBHF for her commitment to sportsmanship and being a role model for others. She currently holds a 4.0 GPA and was chosen to this year’s Eastern Cincinnati Conference All-Academic team. In addition to playing basketball at Roosevelt, Thierauf intends to major in early childhood education/special needs.
In her first season as a full-time varsity player, Thierauf earned second team All-ECC honors. She placed second on the Eagles in scoring at 10.2 points per game, while making a team-leading 23 three-pointers. Thierauf exploded for a career-high 22 points in an early season win over Winton Woods and finished with double figure scoring in 12 games. Hannah is the daughter of Phil and Lisa Thierauf.
