Both Anderson and Ohlmiller are eligible for the honor, which recognizes the conference’s senior male and female student-athlete that best “distinguished himself and herself throughout their collegiate career in the areas of academic achievement, athletic excellence, service and leadership.”
Twenty-five institutional nominees for the 2018 America East Man and Woman of the Year awards were originally announced by the conference office Thursday, May 17. The winner of the 2018 awards will be announced next Tuesday, June 5, at the conference’s annual awards dinner.
