The Empire 8 Conference named Hartwick College freshman forward Brittney Dumas its Rookie of the Week for women’s basketball Monday.
Dumas helped the Hawks to victories over Oneonta State and Morrisville last week. Dumas had seven points and three rebounds in Hartwick’s 48-38 win over O-State on Wednesday in a matchup of teams that qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament last season.
On Saturday, Dumas scored her college high of 13 points, and contributed seven rebounds, two blocks and two steals in a 69-33 win over Morrisville.
Dumas is averaging 8.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.
The Hawks (5-1) will host Utica College tonight in their E8 opener.
O-State sophomore honored
Oneonta State sophomore J.D. Roth was named the SUNY Athletic Conference’s Field Athlete of the Week in track and field.
Roth set an O-State indoor record in the shot put during the Cornell Relays on Saturday. Roth’s distance of 50 feet, 2 ¼ inches was three feet better than the old record set in 2009. He placed second in the event and qualified for the ECAC Championships in the process. Roth also placed seventh in the 35-pound weight throw.
Last winter, Roth earned all-conference honors.
The Red Dragons will compete in the Ithaca College Quad Meet on Saturday.
