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.
