Meet the Team // Sydney the Intern // @TinkerCoffeeCo

Sydney is working this summer in Indianapolis as she takes summer classes at UIndy. She was able to connect with a local coffee company – Tinker Coffee Company – and is working as their intern. Recently they featured her on the Tinker Coffee blog. It was a brief interview with some fun info about what lead her to Indy and to Tinker. I especially like her response to What got you into coffee?

You might have noticed that some of our Instagram posts are looking A LOT better recently, and we have one very special person to thank for those upgrades: our illustrious intern Sydney Brackemyre! Syd the Kyd is a dynamo and has been doing awesome work with us for the past month and we wanted to give folks the chance to get to know her a bit better. We sat down with Syd and asked some questions about where she’s been, where she’s going, and what drew her to the coffee industry in the first place.

Read the entire interview on the Tinker blog!

Syd One of Three Greyhounds Named All-GLVC

wbb_all_conferenceThe 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.
