Senior swimmers D.J. Hogenkamp (East Aurora, NY) and Sarah Steuer (Wilton, CT) topped the opening two weeks of the Liberty League's winter “Performer of the Week” awards.
Hogenkamp was named the league's “Swimmer of the Meet” after leading the Dutchmen to a third place finish in the annual championship meet while Steuer was the “Diver of the Meet” as the Dutchwomen also finished third.
The basketball teams were also represented as senior forward Devon Bruce (Altamont, NY) and junior guard Erika Eisenhut (Mohawk, NY) picked up weekly honors.
Hogenkamp won his second-straight “Swimmer of the Meet” after setting a record in the 100-yard backstroke and also captured both the 200 backstroke and 100 butterfly. He broke his own 100 backstroke record of 53.04 (set last year), with a 52.50. D.J. won the 100 fly with a 51.28 and the 200 back in 1:56.54.
Steuer, meanwhile, won the three-meter dive with 433.65 points and was second on the one-meter board with 360.10 points.
Bruce scored 31 points and pulled down 21 rebounds in Dutchmen victories over Utica, 65-62, and Bridgewater State, 72-58. The senior captain connected on 11 of 17 field goals, had nine offensive boards and a dozen on the defensive end, and also contributed three assists and two steals in 68 minutes of court time.
Eisenhut averaged 13.5 points in a 1-1 week, which included a 57-55 overtime win over eighth-ranked Rochester. She scored 19 points and handed hour four assists with two steals and five rebounds as the Dutchwomen suffered their first loss of the season, 74-62, at Mt. St. Mary.
