The 49ers start-up football program awarded its first-ever Offensive and Defensive MVPs to offensive lineman Jamal Covington and linebacker Mark Hogan while presenting the Jon Richardson Football Scholarship to starting center Thomas La Bianca. Men’s Basketball presented its Most Improved Player award to sophomore Mike Thorne while senior Ny Hammonds was named the women’s basketball MVP. NCAA Tournament participant men’s soccer awarded its MVP to leading scorer Kyle Parker. Some spring programs honored their 2013 award winners, since the 2014 season is still in action.
In addition to the athletic awards, the 49ers presented the Hugh McEniry and Bonnie Cone Awards to the student-athletes with the highest GPA over the past two semesters. The Hugh McEniry Award was awarded to track and field’s Coye Still, baseball’s Patric King, Men’s Soccer’s Jeremy Dennis and men’s tennis’ Jordi Massalle Ferrer. The Bonnie Cone Award went to women’s soccer’s Dana Robertson, cross country’s Chelsea Matson and volleyball’s Michelle Hovey. All seven award winners had posted a perfect 4.0 GPA over the past two semesters.
