Former basketball player Réka Cserny has been inducted into the Harvard Varsity Club (HVC) Hall of Fame. The Hungarian athlete studied at the US university between 2002 and 2005, where she achieved outstanding success as a member and captain of the women's basketball team.
Her Harvard athletic achievements include - among others - Ivy League Player of the Year (2005) and Rookie of the Year (2002) or the Harvard-Radcliffe Foundation for Women's Athletics Prize recipient as the top female scholar-athlete in the Class of 2005. She led Harvard to three Ivy League Championships and back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances.
The HVC Hall of Fame is open to athletes who have graduated from Harvard 15 years ago and have demonstrated outstanding performance in their sport over a number of years. To earn induction, former student-athletes must be a graduate of Harvard for at least 15 years, and have achieved greatness in their sport for multiple years while competing for the Crimson.
At the HVC website, Réka Cserny is quoted as saying that "it is a great honor to be inducted into the Harvard Varsity Club Hall of Fame. I am grateful for this occasion because it has given me the opportunity to slow down and go back in time a bit and reflect on my time with Harvard Basketball and how I got there."
She added that "I am forever grateful to my family, my coaches, my teammates and my mentors, without whom I would not be receiving this award. My Mom always worked hard to support me in all aspects of life and taught me to set high standards. My brother was always there for me to support and protect his little sister. My coaches saw my dedication and the hard work I put in every practice and did everything they could to make me a better player. And my teammates: they are the reason I fell in love with basketball, because without them I would not have had the opportunity to be in the flow every time I stepped on the court."
