Vermont Tech honors students at athletic awards celebration event

Randolph Center, VT, March 29 - Every year Vermont Tech recognizes our amazing student-athlets who embody the spirit of the Knights. This year on March 29, Director of Athletics Hilary Linehan, and Head Coaches presented these awards at the Athletic Awards Desert Celebration, held on campus.  This year was the first with a desert bar, and was enjoyed by student-athletes, friends, parents, and supporters.

Director Linehan dispensed with much of the formality, and after a brief welcome got right to the celebrations! Athletic department-wide awards were handed out first, follwed by, YSCC and USCAA honors.  The coaches then rounded out the evening with team specific awards.

Vermont Tech and the Athletic Department is very proud of our amazing student-athletes. Their dedication and hard work will take them far!
