Three Hamilton College athletes were honored by the Liberty League on Feb. 1 when the league selected its weekly award winners.
Eliza Howe '13 (Westport, Conn./Staples HS) was named the women's basketball rookie of the week. Graham Sadler '13 (South Pasadena, Calif./Pasadena Polytechnic School) earned a co-rookie of the week selection for men's track and field, and Muriel Schwinn '13 (Auburn, Maine/Edward Little HS) shared the rookie of the week award for women's track and field.
Howe was honored for the third time this season. She averaged 14 points, 3 rebounds, 1.5 blocked shots and 1.5 steals in a 2-0 week for Hamilton. She made all eight of her free-throw attempts. She led the Continentals with a season-high 19 points in a 62-50 win at St. Lawrence University on Jan. 30. She ranks sixth in the league with a field goal percentage of 75 percent, and fifth with a 3-point field goal percentage of 35.4 percent.
Sadler tied for sixth place out of 27 athletes in the high jump with a height of 1.83 meters at Colgate University's multi-divisional Class of 1932 Invitational on Jan. 30.
Schwinn was honored for the fourth time this season. She won the long jump (5.09 meters), finished third in the 60-meter dash and took eighth place in the 200-meter dash at Colgate University's multi-divisional Class of 1932 Invitational on Jan. 30. Her 60-meter time of 8.17 seconds broke her own program record, and her time of 27.50 seconds in the 200 meters qualified her for the New York State Collegiate Track Conference championships in the event.
