Once again, Will Quinn (Fonda-Fultonville) is an All-American honorable mention at the NJCAA championship men’s swimming meet for the State University of New York at Delhi.

Quinn finished 15th in the 200-yard backstroke with a time of 2:29.40 and was 16th in the 1,650-yard freestyle with a time of 20:32.10.

Both times earned him All-American honorable mention status.

He also was the lead swimmer on all four of the Broncos’ relays, leading them to four All-American honorable mention times.

The Broncos were eighth in the 400-yard medley in 4:16.26, ninth in the 400-yard freestyle relay in 3:43.44, 10th in the 200-yard freestyle relay in 1:40.82 and 10th in the 200-yard medley relay in 1:56.16.

• Courtney Hines (Johnstown) overcame a foot injury Friday and scored 10 points, dished out four assists and grabbed five steals, helping the SUNY Brockport women’s basketball team to its first NCAA Division III tournament win with a 68-64 win over Emmanuel College.

However, the Golden Eagles fell Sunday to host William Smith College, 78-73, despite a 14-point effort by Hines in her final game.

Hines finished the season with 366 points, 127 rebounds, 88 assists and 59 steals.

• Katie Caddell (Amsterdam) was named the Hartwick College Sportswoman of the Year for the women’s basketball team, an award that goes to a student-athlete that exhibits sportsmanship and leadership qualities.

She averaged 8.4 points per game and led the Skyline Conference in 3-point shooting accuracy.

• Kristen Stein (Gloversville) placed 23rd for the SUNY Oneonta women’s indoor track team in the 500-meter dash with a time of 1:22.18 at the New York City Fastrack Invitational.

Stein’s time was an Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference qualifying mark.

• Garrett Duross (Johnstown) was named an NJCAA Pre-season All-American for the Mohawk Valley Community College baseball team.

Entering his second and final season at MVCC, Duross is a sophomore captain.

• Kristin Mraz (Johnstown) hit a 3-point basket to stop a 7-0 run by No. 2 Franklin Pierce, helping the sixth-seeded Bryant Bulldogs to a 78-65 win in the Northeast-10 semifinals.

The Bulldogs eventually fell in the championship game to Stonehill, but still earned a bid to the NCAA Division II tournament.

Bryant will face Stonehill in the opening round of the NCAA Division II tourney Friday.

• Dino Johnson (Amsterdam) closed out his month of February by earning Skyline Conference Rookie of the Week honors after averaging 18.5 points and six rebounds over two games.

He scored 10 points in a game against Yeshiva and dropped a career-high 27 in a victory over SUNY Purchase.
