Warriors rake in

academic awards

Ten of Lycoming College’s 17 ath-

letic teams picked up awards for their

performance in the classroom during

the 2013-14 academic year, marking the

highest amount in the athletic depart-

ment’s history. The department also

reached a significant milestone in the

spring semester, as the college’s nearly

400 athletes posted a cumulative GPA of

3.01, the highest since the department

began to track the information.

“We are incredibly proud of the type

of student-athletes that we continue to

recruit and attract at Lycoming College,”

director of athletics Mike Clark ’93 said.

“For more than half our athletic teams to

earn team academic awards and to post

a cumulative department GPA above 3.0

are significant achievements and ones we

will strive to continue to improve upon.”

The men’s and women’s soccer

teams kicked off the recognition,

as both earned the National Soccer

Coaches Association of America Team

Academic Award. Both programs posted

cumulative GPAs above 3.00 during the

2012-13 academic year.

The men’s and women’s cross country

team earned All-Academic Team honors

from the United States Track & Field and

Cross Country Coaches Association,

as both teams earned the award for the

first time in school history. Both teams

maintained a cumulative GPA of better

than 3.10 in 2012-13 to earn the award.

The men’s and women’s swim teams

followed with outstanding spring

semesters, as each earned Scholar

All-American Team honors from

the Collegiate Swimming Coaches

Association of America, as both teams

posted cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or better

in the spring.

The men’s and women’s tennis teams

continued a long tradition of earning

the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s

All-Academic Team award, with the

men winning it for the fourth time and

women earning it for the seventh, as

both teams posted a cumulative GPA of

better than 3.20 in the 2013-14 academic

year.

The volleyball squad earned

the American Volleyball Coaches’

Association Team Academic Award

for the second time in school history

after posting a team GPA of better than

3.30 in 2013-14. Softball also picked up

All-Academic Team accolades from the

National Fastpitch Coaches Association

after notching a GPA above 3.0 in 2013-14.

Seven inducted into athletics

hall of fame

The Lycoming College athletic

department welcomed the 29th

induction class into its hall of fame as

part of Alumni Weekend on Saturday,

May 17. The class featured Lindsey

Artz ‘07 (volleyball), Amy Bauman ‘93

(women’s basketball/softball), Geoff

Boblick ‘98 (men’s basketball), Dan

Cannon ‘08 (men’s lacrosse), Scott

Condello ‘01 (men’s cross country/track

and field), Bekah (Shipe) Brigano ‘09

(women’s soccer) and Steve Weigle ‘77

(football).

In her four years with the Warriors,

Artz earned three all-conference awards

and was named the Freedom Conference

Player of the Year as a junior, while also

establishing the school record in career

kills (1,927) and leading the Freedom

Conference in kills twice and blocks

three times.

One of the school’s best two-sport

athletes, Bauman earned four letters in

basketball and three in softball, earning

first team all-conference honors in

each. On the court, Bauman finished

her career with 1,005 points, one of just

nine players in school history to reach

the 1,000-point mark. On the field she

was one of the best offensive players in

program history as her .520 on-base

percentage as a senior is still the school

record, while her .429 batting average

that season is fifth in school history.

From his first year, when he averaged

16.1 points and was named the Freedom

League Rookie of the Year, Geoff Boblick

laid the foundation to help lift the

men’s basketball team to new heights.
