Vote now for the TNIAAM Syracuse Orange Athlete of the Week

Even though we have a good idea who you'll pick for this one, there were some other note-worthy performances from Syracuse Orange student-athletes that you should know about.

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

With all of the Final Four discussion, it's easy to overlook some of the other Syracuse Orange athletes who have shined in recent competition, so here are your nominees for the TNIAAM Syracuse Athlete of the Week:

Brianna Butler- Basketball

Brianna set a new NCAA record with her 128th 3-pointer of the season in Syracuse's 80-59 victory over the Washington Huskies. Her shooting this post-season has helped Syracuse advance to the 1st National Championship game in school history.

Libi Mesh- Tennis

Libi's singles victory clinched Syracuse's 4-3 victory over the #19 ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Friday. Libi rallied from a 5-0 deficit in the final set to win 7-6.

Sydney O'Hara- Softball

Sydney put on an offensive show with two Home Runs and Six RBI, including the game-winner in extra innings, to lead the Orange to an 8-7 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.  She is now second on the team with 5 HR's and 19 RBI.

Shannon McCann-Rowing

Shannon helped the Orange Varsity 8 boat retain the Kittell Cup with a victory over Boston University. The #19 Orange will return to action at Clemson in two weeks.

Kayla Treanor- W. Lacrosse

Kayla tallied 7 points (3 goals and 4 assists) in Syracuse's 14-12 win over Duke on Sunday. In addition to her scoring, Kayla had 10 draw controls as the Orange move to 10-3 (3-1 in ACC) on the season.

Shaylyn Tuite- W. Track & Field

Shaylyn opened up her outdoor season with a personal-best time of 33:22.04 in the 10k at the Stanford Invitational. Her time is the 3rd fastest in program history and was over a minute faster than her time in the 10k last season.

Chevis Armstead- M. Track & Field

Chevis turned in an interesting double last weekend. After clocking a 14.26 time in the 110m hurdles at the Florida Relays, he headed to Houston for the Final Four, where he was Syracuse's representative for the singing of the National Anthem.

As always, voting closes at Noon tomorrow. Feel free to write-in candidates in the comments.
