Several Clark University student-athletes took home awards during the Athletics Department’s annual Night of Honors ceremony held May 4.

Men’s lacrosse was the biggest winner of the night with two of their student-athletes – Rob Holden ’16 of East Longmeadow, Mass., and Alex Turgeon ’16 of Holden, Mass. – taking home major awards. The team’s April 2 win over Wheaton, the Renny Classic match, was voted as the Game of the Year.

Here’s an excerpt from the full story on

Women's tennis captain Rebecca Kravetz ’16 of Wayland, Mass., and women's soccer standout Gabby Paolini ’16 of North Potomac, Md., won the Senior Class Award, which is presented to the student-athletes who define class, sportsmanship, integrity, leadership and support for other programs. Kravetz was a huge part of the rise of women's tennis, helping the team to a school-record 10 wins this season while staying active in several campus initiatives.

“Paolini was the key organizer for Midnight Mayhem, working closely with athletics administration, clubs and groups to put together the first collegiate basketball game of the season that tipped off at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 13. Her passion for cheering on other teams was chronicled in a Worcester Telegram & Gazette article on 'Super Fans' at local colleges and universities. Paolini, who served as an admissions tour guide, was the 2015 Pat Hassett Award recipient. A team captain, she recorded more than 400 saves in her career, started all 73 games and had 11 shutouts.”
