For the second year, U-E Athletics named two student athletes as Tiger Iron Athletes of the Year. This year’s winners are Kate Brennan and Nick Harvey.
Last year marked the start of the new strength and conditioning program for U-E student athletes through United Health Services (UHS.) Throughout the year, students participate in various workouts geared toward their respective sports, including training in the off-season.
Run by UHS strength and conditioning coach Andrew Long, the program provides students with sports-specific training programs as well as the necessary tools to lead a physically active and healthy lifestyle for years to come.
Besides working hard and being committed to physical fitness, U-E Iron Athletes must also exemplify four principles for a positive physical culture:
-Embrace: accepting of your situation and what is to come. Know you are going to work hard.
-Relentless: continuing and persevering no matter what happens. You will finish.
-Integrity: the difference between what you say and do. Lead by example.
-Service: sacrificing for the people around you. Everything you do is for the team, school, and community.
Congratulations to Kate and Nick on being named Tiger Iron Athletes of the Year!
