HONORS

Water Polo

Hartwick junior Sami Capparelli and freshman Britt Tait were recognized by the Collegiate Water Polo Association on Thursday. Capparelli received Western Division Player of the Week honors while Tait earned Rookie of the Week accolades.

Capparelli had four goals, two assists, one steal and a kick-out drawn in the Hawks’ 13-4 season-opening victory over Marist on Jan. 26, when Tait had two goals, two steals and an assist.

Academics

Hartwick’s Kate Purcell earned a spot on the Capital One Academic All-District Women’s Basketball Team for the second straight season, the Hawks announced Thursday.

Purcell, a junior guard, entered the weekend as the Hawks’ leader in three-pointers made (36), rebounds (7.2 per game), assists (63) and steals (55). She is a biology major with a cumulative GPA of 3.74.

The Academic All-District Teams, which are selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada and include NCAA players from divisions I-III. The teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for excellence in athletics and academics.

Purcell will appear on the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second-, and third-team All-America honorees will be selected in February.
