  A Season of Successes

—by John Rivera

Notre Dame has celebrated a number of athletic achievements so far this academic year, as the Gator volleyball team advanced to the playoffs and the field hockey team was honored by its peers for its sportsmanship.

Cleaya Antes , Class of 2017The campus followed along as the volleyball squad won their first five games. They were an especially formidable team at home, where they finished with an 8-3 record. By the end of the season, the team improved its 2012 win total by six games and reached the Colonial States Athletic Conference Playoffs for the first time since the 2010 season.

In addition, freshman Cleaya Antes and senior Cortney Silvis earned CSAC postseason honors: Antes earned the league’s Rookie of the Year award and was also named Honorable Mention All-CSAC Team, while Silvis was named to the All-CSAC Second Team. In another honor, NDMU’s field hockey team was named a recipient of the CSAC’s 3-D Award, which honors the teams from each sport that best exemplify the NCAA Division-III principles of “Discover, Develop, Dedicate.” Following each conference contest, participating teams were asked to evaluate their opponents based on the three Division-III principles, giving a rating of 1 to 10 in each “D” category. Based on those ratings, NDMU’s field hockey squad received 3-D accolades from their peers.

Tessa Schwartz, Class of 2015“I want to thank and congratulate Ashley Demski and Mike Harnden, our field hockey coaching staff, for their leadership of the NDMU Field Hockey program,” says Erin Foley, NDMU Athletics Director. “This award is especially meaningful because it is voted upon by the student athletes of the CSAC.”
