EMMITSBURG, Md. – Mount Athletics continues to open the video vault from the past year to look back at the best of "This Week In Mount Athletics" in our second Mounties Award.
"This Week In Mount Athletics" started back in the fall with women's soccer senior Alicia Miller hosting the inaugural episode on Sept. 7. We had a total of 35 episodes in 2011-12 and had 56 different student-athletes host during the year
We started with a single host and then tweaked the show midway through the year by having two people host each week. We had a surprise visit from Santa Claus in our Christmas edition, went on location with softball sophomores Lindsey Ruhle and Alyssa Silipino for the spring break edition and had special guest interviews throughout the year.
Each Tuesday, we will look back at the best student-athlete introduction videos, This Week In Mount Athletics episodes, Mount game promos, Mount NEC promos, holiday videos and game shows. Each week, the fans will have a chance to vote on the best video in that category and the following Tuesday the winning video will be named the best for that category.
We would like to congratulate women's swimming junior Courtney Griffith for winning our first Mounties Award for Best Student-Athlete Intro. It looks like Titanic has hit gold again even when comparing your swimming career to the movie.
We had plenty of great hosts and episodes for "This Week In Mount Athletics" and it was difficult to narrow down the choices to six selections.
