17_YearEndAwards

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College has announced its 2016-17 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 Bri Johnson and Mike Sheehan, who were awarded the Lomax and Kirkland Awards for the top female and male senior athletes who have been in attendance for at least three years, along with Hannah Cruse and Steven Porter, who were given the Wurster Awards for team leadership.

Johnson, a women's basketball player from Statesville, N.C., was named the Lomax Award winner.  She is a three-time South Atlantic Conference selection and helped Catawba to the NCAA Regionals in 2015.  Johnson set a record with eight three-pointers in the regional contest, while tying a school mark this year with 41 points against Carson-Newman.  She became one of 17 women to reach 1,000 career points.

Sheehan, of Wilmington, N.C., who played football, earned the Kirkland Award.  He is one of only two Catawba players to pass for over 4,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 in a career, finishing just yards short of 5,000 passing yards and 1,500 rushing yards.  Sheehan helped Catawba to the 2015 conference championship and a spot in the NCAA II playoffs.  He completed 60% of his passes and accounted for 58 touchdowns.

The Wurster Awards were established to honor a male and a female that demonstrate strong character, able leadership and an outstanding team-before-self attitude.  Cruse, a women's soccer player from Concord, N.C., and Porter, a football player from Concord, N.C., earned this year's awards.

Katie DeZego, of Lexington, N.C., and Sean McMahon, of Hilton Head, S.C., were the recipients of the SAAC Award for the highest cumulative GPA’s for seniors.  DeZego, a biology major that plays women's soccer, posted a prefect 4.0 grade point average.  McMahon, a cross country runner, had a 3.98 GPA while majoring in sociology.  The women’s cross country team took the team award with a 3.73 GPA.
