Four Tribe student-athletes earn CAA scholar of year honors

Four William and Mary student-athletes earned Colonial Athletic Association scholar athlete of the year honors in their respective sports: Ryder Miconi for baseball, Christian Cargill for men's tennis, Tucker Rizzi for men's track and field, and Regan Rome in women's track and field.

Miconi was named the CAA Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the second year in a row. A finance major, the two-time CAA All-Academic selection finished his career batting .318 this season with nine home runs and 45 RBIs.

Cargill also picked up the honor in men's tennis for a second consecutive season, as did Rome in women's track and field.

Cargill, a junior business finance major, earned All-CAA first team distinction in doubles (with Ryan Newman) and second team honors in singles in 2017.

Rome earned her third conference scholar athlete of the year award, having also garnered one for cross country in the fall. The math major achieved All-America status in both the 10,000 and 5,000 (honorable mention) meters in her final season in the NCAA championships.

Rizzi received the award for the first time, but it was the 12th time in 15 years that a William and Mary athlete was awarded the honor in men's track and field. The redshirt junior graduated with a finance degree in May and earned honorable mention All-America honors at the NCAA championships in javelin.

Women's golf

William and Mary women's golf junior Katie Edelblut was named to the Virginia Sports Information Directors Second Team All-State.

Edelblut, an All-Colonial Athletic Association Second-Team and CAA All-Academic team selection, averaged a 75.62 score for the season, the third-best in school history.
