Senior Round-Up (new title?)


For the final issue of The Dolphin, we are highlighting the seniors of the golf, tennis and rugby teams as they finished their seasons this past spring. These seniors have stuck together the last four years and have had many great memories along the way.

The men’s golf team loses two seniors this year, Chris Sova and Anthony Viskovich. These two players have been major assets to the team over the last three years, even helping the team to score a Championship win three years ago. Viskovich was named NE-10 Player of the Week this past year, after winning the St. Rose fall shoot-out.

“I have had a lot of fond memories on the golf course representing Le Moyne. I was a walk on as a freshman and that year we won the school’s first ever Northeast-10 Conference Championship as well as another tournament as a team,” Viskovich said. “This year as a senior I was able to accomplish many things. Two of the most important accomplishments was being the captain of the team and I was able to win two tournaments individually. Other highlights include participating in the NCAA tournament my freshman and junior year and collecting two Northeast-10 Player of the Week awards as well as Northeast-10 Freshman of the Week awards.”

Also graduating with Viskovich is Chris Sova, who has also had a memorable experience at Le Moyne.

“Playing a sport has allowed me a more “whole” college experience. I don’t think a college education is complete without being actively involved in on-campus teams and groups,” Sova said.

The women’s golf team loses three seniors this year, Kathleen Reidy, Jennifer Greco and Emily Crist. These women have helped the program grow over the past few years, even helping the team to secure eighth place in the Championships this fall. Reidy and Crist have been key leaders this year for the team. Reidy was the co-medalist winner for the Le Moyne Invitational this past spring.

The men’s tennis team loses five seniors this year, Dan Sullivan, Ken Schiefer, Jim Shelp, Andy Gleason and Joe Persia. These men make up the first five positions of the starting line-up and will be a great loss to the team next year. They helped lead the team to the Championships, where they lost in a tight match the first round.

Shelp has had a great experience playing tennis, stating, “Playing tennis has been great because it lets me burn off steam and stay in shape.”

Persia added, “It has been a great ride. I will always remember and be thankful that I was able to be a collegiate athlete. Years from now, I know it will even mean more to be able to look back and realize that I was part of something special.”

Caroline Tisdell and Liz Rhode leave the women’s tennis team this year, having helped lead the team over the past four years. Tisdell was an All-Conference player, with Rhode remaining a three-time scholar-athlete over her career at Le Moyne. “Being a student athlete has had a significant impact on my college experience. I’ve met some of my best friends and made some of my favorite memories through tennis. Playing tennis has also given me organizational and time management skills.”

The women’s rugby team loses seniors Abbey Thorp, Chelsea Colón, Julie Murak and Dana Baltrusitis, and the men’s team loses seniors Devin Delaney, Max Recny and Drew Pappert.

The Dolphin wishes these seniors the best of luck with their future and congratulates them on their great careers at Le Moyne.
