Sophomore Courtney Hall of the women’s basketball team has been selected to represent the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) on the NCAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

Hall is one of just 78 collegiate student-athletes chosen across the nation to serve on their respective Division I, II, andIII committees. The committees are divided along divisional lines and are composed of both male and female student-athletes. The Division I committee consists of one student-athlete from each conference. Hall will serve a two-year term that can be extended for an additional two years.

The committee’s purpose is to give student-athletes the opportunity to provide insight on the student-athlete experience and to offer input on the rules that affect their welfare. Not only can they comment on proposed NCAA legislation, but they also are encouraged to suggest potential legislation and to actively participate in the administrative process of the NCAA and its athletics programs.

Hall is a communication major in her second year at George Mason. She saw action in five games as a freshman and has played in four games this season, helping the Patriots to a school-best 5-1 start.

“Courtney will be a great representative for both George Mason and the CAA,” says Tom O’Connor, director of Intercollegiate Athletics. “This is a wonderful opportunity for her to be involved in collegiate athletics on the national level, and to help shape how the NCAA will affect her fellow student-athletes.”
