She is GW's nomination for the prestigious NCAA Woman of the Year Award and was recently named the 2013 Lynn George Outstanding Senior Woman Student-Athlete at the Senior Honors Luncheon.
Pickus, a junior from Las Vegas, Nev., boasts a 3.85 cumulative grade-point average and is majoring in biomedical engineering. She is a four-time selection to the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll and has been on the GW Athletics Academic Dean's List three times.
