Clayton & McComb take top honors at year end awards ceremony

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. McComb was a four-time all-region selection and earned All-America honors as a junior and senior. He helped the team to national prominence as the Indians won two SAC Championships and made four trips to the NCAA II playoffs. Hearn, a baseball pitcher from Middletown, MD, and Jones, a volleyball player from Eden, NC, were the recipients of the Wurster Awards for leadership. Hearn saw limited action on the mound, but was cited for his hard work. He treated every game or practice like the seventh game of the World Series and was the first person to practice and last to leave. Jones saw action as a reserve setter over her four seasons. She served as co-captain and was commended for her community service projects during her four years. Other top awards went to junior football player Austin Summers, of St. George, SC, who was the recipient of the Darris Morris “Ironhorse” Comeback Player of the Year Award and women’s soccer coach John Cullen, who earned the Suther Coaches Award.
