Bearcats host 66th Annual Varsity Awards Program
Binghamton University recently honored its student-athletes at the 66th Annual Varsity Awards Program at the Events Center. More than 400 students, staff, families and supporters were on hand as the department unveiled its 2012-13 award winners. The event was streamed live on Binghamton University’s website for the seventh straight year. The evening also included a Senior Recognition Dinner and culminated with the annual highlight video, produced by former soccer player and webmaster Elsan Dzudza ‘98.
Four senior student-athletes spoke during the two ceremonies: track athlete Ashley AuPont, soccer player Trey Jasenski, basketball player Taylor Johnston and volleyball player Alex Roland.
Voice of the Bearcats Roger Neel served as master of ceremonies and University President Harvey Stenger and Director of Athletics Patrick Elliott offered remarks.
Johnston and Aloizos selected for NCAA Career in Sports Forum
The NCAA and its Leadership Development Department included recent graduate Taylor Johnston and rising senior Kyra Aloizos among the 300 student-athletes who participated in the Career in Sports Forum (CSF), which provides education on career development and potential career opportunities, that took place June 8-11 in Indianapolis.
“We are extremely excited for both Taylor and Kyra to have been selected as participants for this year’s NCAA Career in Sports Forum,” Associate Director of Athletics for Student Services Ed Scott said. “Having facilitated the forum for two years, I know first-hand how valuable this experience will be for both of these talented student-athletes. Their selection to the Career in Sports Forum demonstrates the high caliber student-athletes that Binghamton University recruits.”
