Last week, Colin Bennie ran away with the coveted TNIAAM Athlete of the Week award, but this week the Syracuse Orange women put up some outstanding performances in hopes of taking the vote. Let's get to those nominees:
Taylor Ford- W. Basketball
Taylor made her Senior Night memorable by hitting 5 out of 7 3-point attempts to total 15 points in Syracuse's 83-73 upset of the #10 Florida St Seminoles.
Kayla Treanor- W. Lacrosse
Kayla tallied 11 points in the Orange's doubleheader sweep on Sunday. She started the day with 2 goals and 5 assists versus Wagner and added 1 goal and 3 assists in the win over Marist, while winning 19 draw controls on the afternoon.
Melissa Piacentini- Ice Hockey
Melissa became Syracuse's all-time assists leader over the weekend as the Orange clinched the #2 seed in the upcoming CHA playoffs. She now holds the Syracuse records for goals, assists, and points.
Regine Hunter- W. Track & Field
Regine won the triple jump at Cornell over the weekend and heads into the ACC Championships ranked 7th in the event.
Hannah belted two of Syracuse's five home runs in an 11-3 win over Purdue as the team went 3-1 against Purdue and Ohio State over the weekend. She leads the Orange in hits and RBI so far this season (7).
Valeria Salazar- Tennis
Valeria is 5-2 in singles play and 6-2 in doubles competition for the 7-1 Orange tennis squad. Despite a loss to #9 Virginia, Syracuse is off to their best start since 2009 and the team added to Syracuse's Orange Eagle lead with a sweep of Boston College over the weekend.
Jabari Butler- M. Track & Field
Jabari won the high jump at Cornell and he'll look to do the same at this week's ACC Championships.
Voting closes Tuesday at Noon.
