Student-Athletes Honored at Annual Banquet ESF athletics program celebrates successes on field, in classroom3/20/2018


The ESF athletics program honored its student-athletes at the annual Athletics Banquet Monday, March 19.

Several Mighty Oaks were honored for their performance on and off the field. During the 2017-18 season, 28 student-athletes were named Academic All-Americans and 12 student-athletes were named Athletic All-Americans. In addition to recognizing All-Americans and seniors, each team named its Most Valuable Player and Most Improved Player for the season (see list below).

ESF also took a moment to recognize the contributions of the program's "official" photographer, Bob Beary. Beary has been a mainstay at ESF cross-country and track meets the past four years. Recently, he started shooting photos of the soccer, Woodsmen and basketball teams.

"The athletic department, all its student-athletes and their parents are incredibly grateful for Bob's dedication and the wonderful photography he provides the athletic program," said Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dan Ramin.

Ramin also thanked the ESF Alumni Association for sponsoring the awards banquet.
