Westminster Celebrates 2013-14 Athletic Accomplishments at WESPY Awards

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - The Westminster College Department of Athletics and the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted the 11th Annual WESPY Awards (Westminster Exceptional Sports Performances of the Year) Tuesday night at Orr Auditorium. The WESPYs honored team MVPs for all 18 varsity sports teams, as well as several annual awards and recognition of top athletic achievements throughout the 2013-14 academic year.

Highlighting the event was the awarding of the David B. Fawcett and Marjorie A. Walker Awards, given annually to honor and acknowledge those individuals who best exemplify the qualities of fairness, sportsmanship, leadership, determination and competitiveness. The Fawcett Award was given to senior men's track & field and basketball Anthony Thomas (New Castle, PA / Union) and the Walker Award was presented to senior women's track & field Haley Gabor (New Kensington, PA / Ford City).

Thomas, a four-year letterman in basketball and track & field, was a four-year starter and three-time All-Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Honorable Mention in basketball where he scored his 1,326 career point (14th all-time) this past season. Thomas, a member of four PAC Track & Field championship teams, earned All-PAC First Team in 2013 and 2014, was the PAC Championship Field Event MVP in 2013, and holds two school records. Thomas, a communication major, has volunteered with the Special Olympics bowling and has helped with his Alma Mater, Union High School, at youth basketball camps.

Gabor, a four-year letterwinner in track & field, was the PAC Track Athlete Co-MVP, All-PAC First Team, and PAC Champion in the 200m and in the 1600m relay at the 2014 PAC Outdoor Championship. Gabor was also the gold medalist in the 200m and in the 1600m relay at the 2014 PAC Indoor Championship. Gabor, an All-PAC First Team honoree in Outdoor T&F in 2012 and 2013, was named the PAC T&F Championship MVP in 2012. Gabor holds five school records and was the high point scorer on two PAC Championship T&F teams. Gabor, a chemistry major, was a three-year SAAC representative and also represented Westminster at the PAC SAAC banquet. Gabor volunteered for Special Olympics bowling and was a recipient for an exceptional leadership scholarship.

The WESPY award, given for the top single-event athletic performance by a Titan male and female student-athlete, was voted on by the entire campus community via e-mail ballot.

The men's WESPY went to junior swimmer Steven Brooks (Boardman, OH / Boardman). At the PAC championship meet, Brooks was the overall high point scorer to win the Meet MVP, the PAC Swimmer of the Year award, and was All-PAC 1st Team.  He won seven gold medals (four individual and three relay) at the meet and set new school records in both the 100 and 200 backstroke events.  He also qualified in two events for the NCAA D-III National Championship Meet.

For the second-straight year, the women's WESPY went to track and field sophomore Marissa Kalsey (Waynesburg, PA / Waynesburg). Kalsey finished in second place at the NCAA D-III Indoor Track & Field Championships to earn her third track & field All-American citation. She cleared 3.95 meters (12' 11 ½"), just .05 meters off her school record and personal best.  Her second place performance is the highest finish in Westminster history by any track & field athlete, male or female, in national competition. 

The Senior Scholar Athlete awards are given annually to the graduating senior male and female student-athletes with the highest cumulative grade-point averages. The men's award went to baseball senior Nick Reinthaler (Canfield, OH / Canfield) and the women's award went to volleyball senior Rebecca Riemer (Pittsburgh, PA / Mount Lebanon).

Sunday, April 6, 2014

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Westminster will be joining nearly 450 other NCAA Division III institutions to celebrate Division III Week this week, April 7-13. This is the third year that a week has been set aside by the NCAA to recognize those member institutions whose intercollegiate athletic programs compete in D-III.

The initiative has been guided by a strategic-positioning platform, describing Division III as a place where student-athletes can "follow your passions and develop your potential," within an approach that combines rigorous academics, competitive sports and an opportunity to pursue other interests.

Here is a list of DIII Week activities on Westminster's campus:
April 7-11: Division III Trivia Contest
April 10: Recognition luncheon for student-athletes honored on Fall 2013 PAC Academic Honor Roll.
April 11: Ninth annual SAAC Field Day for Wilmington fourth grade students; lunch and t-shirts provided.

Cross Country: Sutton Featured in Warren Tribune

Monday, September 16, 2013

By John Vargo, Tribune Chronicle TribToday.com

Sutton making mark for Westminster

Aaron Sutton has a passion for strumming chords on his guitar.

Having an ear for music, it wasn't difficult for the 2010 Howland High School graduate and current Westminster College runner to listen to what his college coach, Tim McNeil, was saying.

"A lot of my high school career, I tried to be a front runner," Sutton said. "Probably a lot of that had to do with Mike Garcia being my coach my first couple of years and being confident. Toward the end of high school, especially coach McNeil, was a big proponent of checking your fuel economy. Like saving some and gradually getting faster coming from behind. Instead of blowing all your valves in the first two miles. I apply that to all my races here. Pace smart. Start smart. Finish strong. The biggest thing is it's helped me move up to the next level. College races are much more tactical. You have to go out smart, keep your head in the game with your strategy."
