    May 12, 2020

    The University of Scranton department of athletics is pleased to announce that they will honor and recognize all graduating senior student-athletes on Thursday, May 14 in a virtual awards presentation that will be broadcast live on Zoom beginning at 7 PM.

    Along with the 2020 senior class, all student-athletes are encouraged to attend and take part in the show.

    Due to COVID-19, the event (which traditionally is held on campus) will be presented live via  Zoom teleconference on the 14th. Here are some highlights to look forward to during the show.

    • The athletics department will announce the four main senior awards during the show: the O'Hara, Carlesimo, Fitzpatrick, and Willensky awards. For more on the annual awards and past winners, click here: https://athletics.scranton.edu/Awards_-_Honors/Senior_Athlete_Awards/Senior_awards.pdf
    • A new award, "The Ocorr Student-Athlete Service Award" will also be presented for the first time during the presentation. The award will be given to a graduating senior student-athlete who has "royally" served the campus and/or the Greater Scranton Community during his/her tenure.
    • Each senior, along with their teams, will be recognized throughout the program, as well as the programs' highest-earning GPA award recipients.
    • The show will also include some of the best (and funniest) moments throughout the year, as viewers will be able to participate in live polling for three superlative awards -  best dance move, best game face, and best collision.

    More information will be posted on the 2019-20 University of Scranton Senior Student-Athlete Celebration over the week as we countdown to May 14, so stay tuned to athletics.scranton.edu for more information as it becomes available!
