The Great Lakes Valley Conference announced their post-season honors revealing Player of the Year, Coach of the Year along with First Team, Second Team and Third Team All-GLVC. Martha Burse was named to the First Team and Sydney and Nicole Anderson were named to the Second Team.
While this was Syd’s first full year of actually playing college ball, she still missed games due to nagging knee difficulties.
Sydney was also named the team’s recipient of the James R. Spalding Sportsmanship Award. Proud of her not just as a player, but also who she conducts herself on and off the court.
The UIndy Athletics website posted an article about the three players and their post-season awards.
Here’s a portion of that article:
Although injuries limited her to just 19 games, Brackemyre has still had a major impact on the Greyhounds in her debut year. The Wilmington, Ohio-native’s 15.3 points per game and 47.7% shooting both rank second on the team.
Brackemyre put teams on notice immediately, recording back-to-back double-doubles against Findlay (20 pts, 16 reb) and Walsh (14 pts, 10 reb) on opening weekend. That was enough for the conference to make her the GLVC Player of the Week, the first time in more than two years a Greyhound picked up the conference’s weekly honor.
Additionally, Brackemyre was named the team’s recipient of the James R. Spalding Sportsmanship Award. The student-athletes chosen are individuals who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. These individuals must also be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting. The honorees are now eligible to become one of their school’s two Spalding Sportsmanship Award winners, which will be announced at the end of the academic year.
