Repeat acclaim for 4 Blue Devil seniors

This week's SUNYAC weekly award winners include, from left, seniors Tyrone Clark, John Estainslau, Katelyn Haley and Becky Hebert -- all repeat winners.

Four Fredonia State Blue Devils received weekly awards Monday from the State University of New York Athletic Conference.

Tyrone Clark (Elmira, N.Y.) was named Men's Basketball Player of the Week, John Estanislau (East Longmeadow, Mass.) the Men's Swimmer of the Week, Katelyn Haley (Canandaigua, N.Y.) the Women's Diver of the Week, and Becky Hebert (Hilton, N.Y.) the Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

All four are seniors. All four are repeat winners.

Clark played every minute of two SUNYAC road games, including Friday's overtime loss at Oneonta, and averaged 31.5 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. He shot 55.0 percent from the field, including 52.6 percent on three-pointers, and 90.0 percent from the foul line. His 35 points vs. New Paltz was his fifth game this season of 30 points or more. Clark is averaging 21.7 points and 6.0 rebounds per game, and is shooting 53.7 percent from the floor. It is the second time this season he has won the SUNYAC weekly award.

Estanislau won three individual events and one relay as Fredonia State defeated Cortland for the first time in 10 seasons, 175-123, at the Steele Hall Natatorium last Saturday. Taking part in his final collegiate home meet, Estanislau finished first in the 200 freestyle (1:45.01), the 100 freestyle (:47.16), the 100 butterfly (:53.39), and was part of the winning 200 medley relay (1:39.83). He had won the SUNYAC award three other times this season prior to Monday.

Haley was a double winner in the Blue Devils' home loss to Cortland. She won the 1-meter with a score of 254.90 points and the 3-meter with an NCAA zone qualifying score of 281.10 points. It is the third time this winter she has been cited by the SUNYAC.

Hebert led the Blue Devils in scoring and shooting accuracy as they won their third and fourth straight games. She had 17 points vs. Oneonta and 28 points vs. New Paltz by shooting  17 of 24 from the field (70.8 percent) and 11 of 12 from the line (91.7 percent). She also averaged five rebounds and three assists per game. Hebert is averaging 23.5 points per game on 59.2 percent field-goal shooting and 84.7 percent from the line. She won the same award last week and on one other occasion this season.
