The AlphaGraphics Armstrong Student-Athlete of the Month for January is sophomore women's basketball player Brigitta Barta.
AlphaGraphics and the Armstrong athletic department are teaming up to honor one student-athlete each month that best represents the Pirates' drive to succeed on the field and in the classroom. The Pirates have won the Peach Belt Conference Commissioner's Cup three straight years and the Presidential Academic Award the last two years and success can not happen without the efforts of our outstanding student-athletes.
A native of Budapest, Hungary, Barta averaged 17.4 points per game during the month in which the Pirates went 6-3 in Peach Belt Conference play. She was named the PBC's Player of the Week on January 26th and hit the game-winning shot wiht eight seconds left in Armstrong's 68-67 win at Montevallo on January 31st.
Barta currently carries a 3.57 GPA in business economics and was a preseason All-Peach Belt Conference selection coming into her sophomore season.
