Falmouth, Mass. (June 4) — At the 2013 Northeast-10 Conference Awards Dinner, Assumption College senior swimmer Amanda Guy (Lakeville, Mass./Apponequet) has been named as the Northeast-10 Conference Women’s Co-Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Guy is the 10th Assumption College student-athlete to earn this award in its 13 years of existence, the most of any institution in the 16-member Northeast-10 Conference.
“I am very proud of each of our student-athletes as they strive for excellence in the classroom,” said Nick Smith, director of athletics. “Amanda has achieved at an incredibly high level and this award is a tribute to all of her hard work and dedication both in the pool and in her classwork. She has set a great example for all of our student-athletes and continues the success of the Assumption College student-athletes and this prestigious award.”
Guy is a three-time Northeast-10 Academic All-Conference selection who helped the Hounds to the program’s highest-ever finish at the Northeast-10 Championship this year. At the Assumption College Senior Student-Athlete Awards Night this spring, Guy was awarded the Rev. Armand Desautels, A.A. Memorial Award, which is given to the “premier senior student-athlete” and combines academic excellence and athletic performance.
“Amanda’s leadership and her love of the sport will be sorely missed,” said Assumption College swimming and diving head coach Stuart Cromarty. “Amanda was an integral part of our success and someone that I could always count on. She worked hard all four years, both in the pool and in the classroom as she achieved a tremendous grade point average and became the third-leading point scorer in the history of the program.”
“Amanda was always involved in everything with the team and provided important leadership and strength,” said Cromarty. “This included tutoring many of her teammates with their coursework, guiding and providing counseling to incoming freshmen and helping with many daily aspects of team management. The team and I will miss her very much.”
She was a member of a three school-record relay teams at the Northeast-10 Championship, along with a pair of top-10 finishes in the 500 free and 1650 free. An eight-time member of the Northeast-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll, Guy earned the Assumption College Premier Student-Athlete Award for a perfect 4.0 GPA in the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semester and has earned the school’s Director’s Citation on six occasions.
