The All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year Award program recognizes those collegiate and high school athletes whose athletic accomplishments reflect their dedication to strength training and conditioning training for their respective sport. We are looking for individuals that embody what it means to be a student athlete here at UMW, in that with discipline, perseverance, accountability, and a strong work ethic, any goal is obtainable. It is our plan to line the entire wall of mirrors over the years with such student athletes across all sports.
Nine student-athletes from the University of Mary Washington have been selected for the award: Erin Andrewelevich (track & field), David Danek (track & field), Erin Whitesell (swimming), Hannah Bruns (softball), Lewis Grant (rugby), Morgan Maccartney (field hockey), Brooke Bauman (women's soccer), Jacob Lovinger (men's soccer), and Jennifer Bosserman (women's lacrosse).
