AHS grad Sanchez earns honors
HOUGHTON — Amsterdam High School graduate Edena Sanchez, a junior on the Houghton College women’s indoor track and field team, was named an Empire 8 Conference Sportswoman of the Year.
One member of each team was named that institution’s representative on the 2019-20 Women’s Indoor Track & Field Sportswoman of the Year Team. The Empire 8 Conference emphasizes that “Competing with Honor and Integrity” is an essential component of a student-athlete’s experience in conjunction with an institution’s educational mission. These honorees have distinguished themselves and consistently exhibit the critical traits as outstanding sportswomen.
Sanchez also was named first-team all-conference in the 800 meters.
To be named an E8 All-Conference selection, a student athlete must have finished in the top two of an event at the Conference’s Championship Meet. Winners of the event are named to the first team, while the second team is comprised of the runner-up from each event.
