The October 2017 Athlete of the Month Award went to Daria Sheremeteva, a competitive tennis player who is studying International Business at SLU-Madrid.

"I've really enjoyed getting to know Daria," comments Sports Director César Rioja. "She is very hardworking and serious, both in training and in competitions. She has a great attitude and is a very deserving recipient of this award." César serves as academic advisor to student athletes looking to train and compete while pursuing their degrees at SLU-Madrid
