Four Tiger Student-Athletes Selected for SCAC Winter Sportsmanship Team

San Antonio - Four Trinity student-athletes were selected for the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Winter All-Sportsmanship Team.

The SCAC encourages sportsmanship throughout the season, and at the end of each campaign, the head coaches nominate a member of their team who has exemplified this value. Seniors Duncan MacAskill, Paige Johnson, and Taylor Kim along with Emily Daniel were each selected by their respective coaches for this honor.

MacAskill was the men’s swimming & diving representative after a great senior season. The talented diver placed first at the SCAC Swimming & Diving Championships on the 1-meter board and third in the 3-meter competition to earn a total of seven All-SCAC honors. He then went on to compete in his third regional of his career where he placed fourth on the low board and was designated an alternate for nationals.

Johnson was selected as the women’s swimming & diving representative. This season, she earned a total of five All-SCAC honors at the conference championship meet and two gold medals, which brings her total to 14 all-conference honors.

Kim represented the Trinity men’s basketball team this year for the all-sportsmanship award. The guard was a key role player off the bench for the Tigers and played in 26 out of 27 games this year and averaged about 15 minutes a game for the Tigers, which garnered him recognition on the SCAC Honorable Mention Team. This year the team made it to the SCAC Semifinals where they were defeated in a close match up against Texas Lutheran University.

Daniel had a standout sophomore season and was chosen as the women’s basketball recipient. The guard started in 26 of the 27 games in which she made an appearance and saw the second most time on the floor with an average of 25.3 minutes per game. She averaged 10.3 points per game and amassed 38 steals and 30 assists, which helped her to her second consecutive All-SCAC Third Team selection. The Tigers fell short this year of earning their fourth straight SCAC title after a tough loss to Texas Lutheran in the SCAC Championship game.
