SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College has announced its 2002-03 athletic award winners. The awards were presented at the annual athletic ceremony held at Keppel Auditorium on Thursday, May 1. Heading the list of award winners were Kim Clayton and Todd McComb, who were awarded the Lomax and Kirkland Awards for the top female and male senior athletes, and Jon Hearn and Meredith Jones, who were given the Wurster Awards for team leadership. Clayton, a women’s soccer goalkeeper from Haw River, NC, was named the Lomax Award winner. She set numerous Lady Indians records, including most career shutouts with 32 and lowest goals against average at 0.91. Clayton was a three-time all-region selection and was twice named All-South Atlantic Conference. In 2001, she earned conference Player of the Year honors. McComb, a linebacker on the football team from Thomasville, NC, earned the Kirkland Award. He was a four-year starter for the Tribe and finished second all-time with 401 tackles.
