DURHAM, N.C. - Men's fencer Dorian Cohen and women's tennis player Reka Zsilinszka have been named Duke's Senior Male and Female Student-Athletes of the Year.

The pair joins a long line of Duke student-athletes who have been recognized by the university for pairing athletic success with excellence in the classroom.  Both Cohen and Zsilinszka were recipients of Weaver-James-Corrigan ACC Postgraduate Scholarships as well.

Cohen, a three-time All-America, advanced to the NCAA Championships four times and finished his career with a 183-53 (.775) record. A foilist from Brooklyn, N.Y., Cohen earned Academic All-America honors in 2011 and received an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

Cohen recorded two top-10 NCAA finishes in his career, a pair of 50-win seasons and is only the second male fencer in school history to earn three All-America citations. He graduated from Duke with a degree in evolutionary anthropology.

Zsilinszka closed her career ranking third all-time at Duke with 142 career singles wins and second with a .811 winning percentage.  Only the ninth player in Duke history to appear on the All-ACC team all four years, Zsilinszka was also a four-time NCAA qualifier, a two-time All-America choice and a member of Duke's 2009 NCAA Championship team.  

A three-time member of the All-ACC Academic Tennis Team and the ACC Academic Honor Roll, Zsilinszka posted two 40-win seasons and finished this year's regular season at 30-6 overall in singles play.  Also an Academic All-District III selection in 2009, the Fayetteville, N.C., native graduated from Duke with a degree in history.
