McIntosh and Yadav are March's Student-Athletes of the Month.

Liberty student-athletes Chloe McIntosh (lacrosse) and Mandeep Yadav (men's tennis) have been named the March Student-Athletes of the Month.

McIntosh, a third-year co-captain for the Lady Flames, performed well through the month of March to help Liberty earn its two wins on the season.  In seven games during the month, the defender corralled 16 ground balls and caused 10 turnovers.  Against St. Francis, Pa. (March 17), McIntosh helped the Lady Flames hold the Red Flash scoreless for nearly a 20-minute stretch as Liberty pulled away for the 13-9 win. The Dallas, Texas native had a season-high five ground balls in that contest, in addition to two caused turnovers.

Off the lacrosse field, McIntosh holds a 3.74 GPA as an exercise science major.  The senior is also involved in community outreach with her team and the athletic department.

Yadav, also a senior, has come on strong for the men's tennis team during the month of March. Despite dropping his first singles match of the season, Yadav reeled off six straight wins to close the month, and has extended his win streak to eight matches with a pair of April victories. The Chandigarh, India native helped the Flames record a seven-match win streak, the third longest in program history. In doubles play, Yadav went 7-2 in March, which included a four-match win streak.

In the classroom, Yadav holds a 3.18 GPA as a psychology major. Recently, he has been completing an internship with Liberty's Academic Affairs for Athletics office, where he assists with the department's social media.

Both McIntosh and Yadav have upcoming matches on their respective playing fields.  Yadav and the Flames conclude their regular season by hosting Radford, Thursday at 2 p.m.  McIntosh and the Lady Flames wrap up their home schedule for 2012, as they host Jacksonville at 7 p.m., Friday, and Presbyterian College at 1 p.m., Sunday. McIntosh and her fellow seniors will be honored prior to Sunday's game.
