Haverty and Davis claim Lomax and Kirkland Awards for top athletes

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College has announced its 2005-06 athletic award winners for its student-athletes. The awards were presented at the annual athletic ceremony held at the Keppel Auditorium on Tuesday, May 2. Heading the list of award winners were Paige Haverty and Jimbo Davis, who were awarded the Lomax and Kirkland Awards for the top female and male senior athletes, and Summer Zuck and Matt Smith, who were given the Wurster Awards for team leadership. Haverty, a women’s golfer from Greenville, NC, was named the Lomax Award winner. She was a four-time South Atlantic Conference Player of the Year, who holds all of the Catawba women’s golf records. She qualified for NCAA Regionals in all four years and as a senior set the school and SAC record for lowest stroke average at 75.38 and for a career at 77.91. She led the way to a pair of conference championships. Davis, who is from Salisbury, NC, and plays baseball, earned the Kirkland Award. He is a four-year starter for the Tribe and holds school career marks in homeruns (52) and RBI (228). He was a three-time All-SAC selection and earned All-America honors last season. He was part of a squad that won three straight league titles and helped the team to regional play for the second time in 2006, which begins on May 18. Zuck, a volleyball player from Kingston, TN, and Smith, a baseball player from Brown Summit, NC, were the recipients of the Wurster Awards for leadership. Zuck moved to a more defense position as a senior to better aid the team, while being touted as a great ambassador for the College. She was a resident assistant, a Catawba Guide and served as an officer in various clubs. Smith was one of the leaders of the baseball team that has posted a 44-12 record and is ranked fifth in NCAA II. He has played four positions this season and keeps the team headed in the right direction on and off the field. Other top awards went to Zuck and Andrew Sufficool, of Brooksville, FL, who was the recipients of the SAAC Award for the highest cumulative GPA’s for seniors. Zuck posted a 3.98 GPA as an elementary education major, while Sufficool, a tennis player, had a 3.76 GPA while majoring in athletic training. The softball team took the team award with a 3.19 GPA. Mark Smith, a baseball player from Brown Summit, NC, was named the Darris Morris “Ironhorse” Comeback Player of the Year after he battled back from an arm injury that ended his 2005 season after eight games. Craig Turnbull earned the C.A. Suther Coaches Award as he guided the men’s soccer team to a 15-5-2 mark and a spot in the regional final. The awards for team MVPs went to: Matt Smith and David Thomas (Baseball), Helgi Magnusson (Men's Basketball), Hannah Davis (Women's Basketball), Rori Godsey and Brad Heron (Cross Country), Susan Hearn (Field Hockey), Kory Fisher (Football), Richard Lowe (Men’s Golf), Paige Haverty (Women’s Golf), Matt Riley (Lacrosse), Kenny Crowe (Men's Soccer), McKenzie Burman and Lindsay Layman (Women's Soccer), Lindsay Ettinger (Softball), Erin Hyde (Swimming), Drew Ramsey (Men's Tennis), Andi Binney (Women's Tennis), Summer Zuck (Volleyball), Kristan Higgins and Andie Overbeck (Cheerleading), Jeff Smith (Athletic Training), and Sean Fox (Sports Information). #######
