Stoffregen, Wilson among collegiate weekly honorees
Several athletes with local ties have earned honors at the collegiate level in recent days.
Three DePauw Tigers earned NCAC Athlete of the Week honors, including Greencastle graduate Seelye Stoffregen, along with Cami Henry and Michael Ocasek.
At Rose-Hulman’s Friday Night Spikes Series, where the Tigers finished third, Stoffregen won the 400-meter hurdles and ran the anchor leg of the 1,600-meter relay team, which set a new DePauw record with a time of 3:58.12, breaking the mark set in 2005.
Ocasek finished in the 1,500-meter run (3:52.40), third in the 800-meter run (1:54:56) and anchored the 1,600-meter relay team to a third place finish as the Tigers finished third at the Rose-Hulman Friday Night Spikes Series.
Henry threw DePauw’s first perfect game in softball against Denison, striking out 18 batters and issuing no walks during the week.
Elsewhere, the Huntington University track & field program snagged three of the four Crossroads League weekly track & field honors as announced by the league office earlier today.
For the second time this season, sophomore Emma Wilson and senior Adrien Gentie swept the Track Athlete of the Week honors.
Wilson, a Greencastle graduate, earned her fourth weekly track badge of the season by dominating the 1500 meters at the HU Invitational over the weekend. The Greencastle native’s winning time of 4:24.66 is the best in the NAIA this season, automatically qualified her for NAIA Nationals and broke the school record.
