Mercer Named to NEWMAC All-Sportsmanship Team

BOSTON, Mass. - Sophomore middle hitter Cameron Mercer has been named to the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Sportsmanship Team, announced by the league office.

The NEWMAC All-Sportsmanship Team is intended to recognize one student-athlete from each team, in every sport that best demonstrates the ideals of the NEWMAC and its Code of Conduct, regardless of his/her overall performance or statistics for the season. 

The Lyons finished the season with its best record since 1997, ending the season with a 24-9 overall record and 7-3 NEWMAC standing. Wheaton earned its first NEWMAC Tournament win since 1998, defeating Clark in the NEWMAC Quarterfinals on Oct. 31, before dropping a heart-breaker to, eventual conference champions, MIT in the semifinals.
