DENVER — The Middlebury College baseball team suffered a rough season this past spring; the Panthers managed just four wins. But, despite the losing record, junior relief pitcher Mark Dickerson’s enthusiasm for the game remained strong as the NESCAC season drew to a close in early May.
So the six-foot, four-inch hurler decided to take his baseball skills west — at least for the summer.
MIDDLEBURY — A committee of NESCAC administrators has nominated recent Middlebury College graduate, outstanding runner and student, and Washington state resident Alison Maxwell for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.
The NCAA Woman of the Year Award honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership. The award has been given annually since 1991. The 2015 NCAA Woman of the Year will be announced on Oct. 18 in Indianapolis.
MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College earlier this summer announced its 2015 class of inductees into the Middlebury Athletics Hall of Fame class. Just the second class to be inaugurated, this year’s group includes graduates from five different decades, from as early as 1932 and as recent as 2001.
The class includes five men and five women who, combined, played a dozen different sports for the college. One of the inductees is also being honored for his service as a coach and administrator.
The induction ceremony and dinner will be held Nov. 7.
As a state senator, I’m used to getting missives from countless Vermonters who wish to weigh in on various subjects. But rarely do I get one from someone not even old enough to vote that is well researched and articulated on a controversial subject.
I am grateful to Transportation Secretary Sue Minter for coming to Middlebury to discuss the railroad bridge project, for her openness, and frankness, and willingness to listen to the concerns of the town. But I confess a continuing sense of unease as well.
