SPORTS SEASON WRAPS UP WITH AWARDS
Trinity's athletics department
put a bow on the 2002-03 season by honoring its top performers and highlighting
some memorable moments of the year during its annual awards program May
3 in the Ozinga Chapel.
Presentations were made to
each of the 10 teams for their efforts and outstanding achievements, such
as the men's soccer team's trip to the NCCAA finals in Kissimmee, Florida,
during the fall. Individual student-athletes who were lauded for their
contributions to Trinity's record books include senior Kara Bruxvoort (Highland,
Indiana), women's basketball all-time leading scorer, and freshman Jessica
Eenigenburg (Cedar Lake, Indiana), already the most prolific goal scorer
in women's soccer.
Senior soccer players Jose
Dominguez (Pueblo, Mexico) and Brian Laack (Sheboygan, Wisconsin) were
winners of the Tom Krygsheld Memorial Award, named in memory of the former
Trinity soccer player. Baseball Troll Jason Smit, a senior from Lombard,
Illinois, received the Keith Albers Memorial Award, which recognizes exemplary
on-field play and classroom achievement in honor of a former Trinity basketball
player. Val Wories (Lansing, Illinois) capped her career by accepting the
Women's Athletics Award for her cooperation, determination, leadership,
and unselfishness to the basketball and volleyball teams.
Pete Hamstra, Trinity's vice
president for advancement and admissions, was acknowledged for his loyal
and enthusiastic support of Trolls sports and given the Rich Kooy Award.
Named after the former mathematics professor who was a founding member
of the Trinity Athletics Committee, the award honors people who have contributed
to the athletics program through financial support and presence at various
contests throughout the year.
