Hebert, Clark claim SUNYAC cager kudos

Fredonia State basketball players claimed both SUNYAC Player of Week awards this week.

Senior guard Becky Hebert was named the women’s winner while senior forward Tyrone Clark represents the men.

Hebert scored 35 points – one point shy of her single-game school record – in the Blue Devils’ 81-58 home win over Alfred State last Saturday. She also added five rebounds, three steals and one assist. Hebert closed out the first semester with a 24.9 scoring average, first in the SUNYAC and fourth in the nation among NCAA Division III women. She is shooting 59.7 percent from the field and 83.0 percent from the foul line. Her 1,265 career points are second most in Fredonia State program history.

Clark had an all-around game in the second half of the doubleheader Saturday with 26 points and seven rebounds in the Blue Devils’ 79-65 win over Alfred State. He had a season-high five assists and he also matched his season-highs in steals (5) and blocked shots (4). Clark is No. 5 in the conference scoring with 20.5 points per game.

Hebert and Clark are the second and third Fredonia State basketball players honored this winter. On Dec. 2, Fredonia State sophomore forward Sabrina Macaulay was selected SUNYAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week.

Both teams are idle until Jan. 10 when they travel to Oswego for a SUNYAC doubleheader.

For the third time this season, Fredonia State senior Katelyn Haley has been selected SUNYAC Women’s Diver of the Week.

Haley was cited Monday after finishing first in the 1-meter and third in the 3-meter in the Blue Devils’ dual meet Dec. 12 at Canisius College.

She earned 234.60 points for six dives to defeat Canisius’s Audrey Mulhisen by 3.5 points in the 1-meter. Haley’s 3-meter score was 249.95 points.

Her previous SUNYAC awards came on Oct. 28 and again Nov. 11. Her senior teammate, Ashley Keller, won last week, giving Fredonia State four of the seven awards so far this season.

The Blue Devils are idle for two weeks making their annual warm-weather training trip, this year to Florida. Their next regularly scheduled competition is Jan. 11 at home vs. teams from Ithaca and Nazareth.
