BLOG: PSAC honors York County standouts Lundy, Sprenkle
Two former York County high school standouts have earned major honors from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.
The recipients are chosen by the league's sports information directors. The PSAC Top 10 Awards are designed to recognize student-athletes who excel in both the classroom and in athletic competition. Only five male and five female athletes from throughout the conference are honored.
To be a candidate for the PSAC Top 10 Awards, a student-athlete must achieve a minimum of a 3.50 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and be a starter or key reserve with legitimate athletic credentials.
Lundy is being recognized for the second time in her career. She is a senior sprinter on the Shippensburg University track and field team. She is SU’s first PSAC Top 10 honoree since being previously recognized last spring. Lundy is an early childhood education major with a 4.0 cumulative GPA.
During the 2016 indoor track season, Lundy was named the PSAC Champion Scholar for women’s indoor track and field. She anchored the conference champion 1,600-meter relay for Shippensburg, and individually, placed third in the 400 meters for an All-PSAC (top three) performance. The 1,600 indoor relay title was the third straight for the Raiders.
Lundy, a two-time Academic All-American, has posted All-PSAC performances in all of the 400-meter races and 1,600 relays in which she has competed during her indoor and outdoor career, winning nine PSAC titles. She was a 2014 indoor All-American in the 400 meters, placing eighth in NCAA Division II.
A Board of Governors Scholarship honoree, Lundy is active on campus with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and the Make-A-Wish Fund-Raising Committee.
Sprenkle won a pair of matches at the NCAA Division I Championships this winter for Lock Haven University, finishing the season 20-9 and finishing his career at 74-46.
Sprenkle missed the majority of his senior year with an injury, but was prolific when on the mat. He finished in third place at the Eastern Wrestling League Championships and qualified for the first NCAA Division I Championships of his career.
Sprenkle was recently named to the EWL All-Academic Team.
