Cohen, a Slippery Rock junior and Fox Chapel graduate, was named the PSAC West Division Athlete of the Year last week and was named to the all-conference first team in singles and doubles, the latter with partner Olivia Watrner.

Slippery Rock’s No. 1 singles player, Cohen went a combined 37-21 in singles and doubles. She won the PSAC singles title in the fall and earned her 100th career victory, the 11th player in school history to reach the mark.

Cohen became Slippery Rock’s first athlete of the year winner since 2005.
