Basketball star Brittany Henderlight and soccer standout Trey Kramer, both products of Woodford County High School in Versailles, Ky., were named female and male Pioneer Athletes of the Year during the annual awards ceremony in May. Academic and leadership awards were also presented.
Henderlight became the first female non-scholarship player to score more than 1,000 points (1,075) for her Transy career. She helped the Pioneers to a pair of NCAA Division III Championship appearances and was a first-team All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference selection for three straight years after winning Freshman of the Year honors.
Kramer keyed the Transy defense from his goalkeeper’s position, helping the Pioneers qualify for NCAA Division III Championship play during three of his four seasons, including an Elite Eight appearance in the 2009 season. As a senior, he was an All-HCAC first-team pick and a National Soccer Coaches Association All-Region third-team selection.
Liz Todd, a four-year member of the field hockey team, received the George H. Stopp Award for the Transylvania student-athlete with the highest grade point average. A Dean’s List student, she graduated summa cum laude.
Matthew Martin, a four-year member of the men’s golf team, won the Senior Leadership Award, presented by the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. He was an All-HCAC golfer who competed in the NCAA Division III Championship each of his four seasons.
