Spring 2010 Sports Wrap-Up

 BASEBALL (4-8 SUNYAC; 21-13 overall) – senior catcher Rob Herrmann (Trumansburg) made the All-SUNYAC Team for the fourth straight year. A First Team choice, he left the program among the all-time leaders in several categories. Senior infielder Don Kirsch (Attica) made Second Team All-SUNYAC in the spring. Both players collected over 50 hits, just the fifth and sixth Blue Devils to do so in a season.

MEN’S BASKETBALL (9-9 SUNYAC; 11-14 overall) – A mid-year, season-ending injury to senior guard Brad Cooper (Monticello) did not keep the team from qualifying for the SUNYAC Tournament for the second straight year. Despite the injury, Cooper reached the 1,000-point plateau and ended his career 15th on the team’s all-time points list. Fredonia State also played a game at Davidson, the Blue Devils’ first competition against a NCAA Division I team since 1987.

MEN’S HOCKEY (9-5-2 SUNYAC; 17-7-2 overall) – Junior defenseman Steve Rizer (Smithtown) was third nationally in scoring and first in the SUNYAC, earning All-America honors. He made First Team All-SUNYAC while forwards Jordan Oye (Richmond, B.C.) and Alex Morton (Cannington, Ont.) were honorable mentions. The team finished third in the SUNYAC before falling in a first-round playoff upset.

SOFTBALL (5-9 SUNYAC; 15-20 overall) – Freshman Katie Bartkowiak (Fredonia) rewrote the team’s record book in several categories, including season marks for hits and batting average. She also earned the team’s first SUNYAC and ECAC Upstate New York Rookie of the Year awards.

SWIMMING and DIVING – Freshman Sarah Ficarro (Owego) and senior Christian Torres (Dunkirk) earned All-American honors. Ficarro nearly won a national crown with a second-place showing in the women’s 1-meter springboard at nationals. Torres, who fulfilled his NCAA dream after three near misses, finished sixth in the men’s 3-meter. Both Blue Devil teams were fourth in the team standings, up one spot from 2009. Senior diver Heather Robin (Dansville) was given the SUNYAC Chancellor’s Award in her sport.

TRACK AND FIELD – In addition to Nick Guarino’s two NCAA titles, junior hurdler Kate Brett (Webster) won SUNYAC outdoor titles in the women’s 100-meter high hurdles and 400-meter intermediate hurdles, and also qualified for nationals. Senior Jackie Majka (Cheektowaga) won SUNYAC indoor titles in the high jump and long jump and earned the SUNYAC Outstanding Female Field Athlete award. School marks were set by junior sprinter Webster Thomas (Windsor, Conn.) in the men’s indoor 55-meter dash and senior Sarah Furman (West Berne) in the women’s 10,000 meters during the outdoor season.
