FROSTBURG, Md. —
Sophomore Sumer Rohrs (Frostburg, Md./Forest)
and freshman Aaron Main (Brunswick, Md./Brunswick)
captured the Female and Male Athlete of the Year Awards, respectively, at the 2006-07 Frostburg State University Athletics Awards Banquet held late in May.
Rohrs dominated the indoor track & field season this past winter. She was crowned as National Champion, earned All-American honors and set the FSU school record in the 55-meter hurdles (8.09) on the campus of the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology at the NCAA Championships in March. She is the first women’s indoor National Champion for Frostburg State since the 4x400-meter relay team of Gail Brown, Angie Terrell, Diane Watson and Vicki Proctor captured the honor in 1986.
Earlier that same week, Rohrs was named the Mideast Region’s Women’s Track Athlete of the Year. On the season, Rohrs captured victory in the 55-meter hurdles at four different meets including setting the school record in the event on four occasions and setting the indoor conference record (8.14) at the Mason-Dixon Conference Indoor Championships. Rohrs also captured victory and set school record in the 60-meter hurdles (8.72) at the Bucknell Bison Open.
Main, despite being in his first season in a Bobcat uniform, was a workhorse for the baseball team posting a 9-2 overall record and ranking ninth in the nation in wins. He also struckout 78 batter, placing him 23rd in the NCAA Division III ranks. Main, a First Team All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference selection, was first in the conference in ERA (2.84), innings pitched (95.0), strikeouts (78), wins (9) and games started (15).
Each sports team also announced its Most Valuable Player at the banquet. Below is the list of other award winners.
