A May 2002 graduate of St. Lawrence has been given one of the most prestigious awards in college athletics.

Meredith Eisenhut '02, of Mohawk, New York, has been selected as the 2002 winner of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC)-Robbins Scholar Athlete Award. She will be among six student-athletes honored at the annual ECAC Convention on Cape Cod October 1. The ECAC-Robbins Award honors outstanding academic and athletic achievements and is selected by a committee of athletic administrators. Votes are based on extraordinary achievements in academics, athletics and community service.

Now pursuing a graduate degree in education at St. Lawrence, Eisenhut is still participating in athletics, in soccer and softball this season. She played three seasons of soccer and softball as an undergraduate and was a four-year star on the basketball court. She is the first St. Lawrence student-athlete to win the ECAC-Robbins Award, which annually goes to one female and one male student-athlete in each of the three NCAA divisions, I, II and III. The ECAC includes 185 Division III schools in its membership.
