Barany was one of 15 student-athletes voted to the second team in the College Division, and a total of 45 made the All-America at-large team. She is the 10th different Hamilton athlete (11 awards overall) to receive academic All-America honors from CoSIDA.
The College Division includes all NCAA Division II and III, NAIA and two-year schools located in the U.S. and Canada. To be considered for the all-academic teams, the athlete must have reached sophomore academic eligibility and have a grade point average of 3.30 or better. The at-large designation includes 13 women's sports.
Barany made the academic all-district first team in May, and the second team in 2010. In 2011, she led the women's tennis team with nine singles victories as the program's No. 1 player. The dual major in mathematics and neuroscience earned a spot on the New England Small College Athletic Conference spring all-academic team in 2010 and 2011. She finished her collegiate career in second place on the team's all-time list with 48 singles wins.
