FROSTBURG, MD —
Senior Cindy Reese (Westminster, Md./Westminster)
and junior Tim Wilkins (Baltimore, Md./Mervo)
were named Athletes of the Year at the Frostburg State Athletics Awards Banquet last night at the Harold J. Cordts Physical Education Center.
Reese enjoyed a stellar season as a member of three Bobcat teams. She scored three goals and tied for the team lead with nine assists to help the field hockey squad to a 7-9 finish.
She then won both the 1- and 3-meter diving titles at the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Swimming & Diving Championships as the Bobcats captured their second straight conference crown. Reese set an AMCC Championships record with 311.70 points in the 3-meter event.
She completed her year as a pole vaulter on the Bobcat outdoor track and field team, highlighting her season by winning the Frostburg State Invitational.
Reese still has a year of athletic eligibility remaining in diving and track and field and will return to compete in both sports next season.
