Ward And Cicerone Named Athletes Of The Week

November 14, 2016

         

Stephanie Ward had another spectacular showing for the Bulls. The freshman proved, once again, to be a driving force. She helped pace the Bulls to a 12th place finish at the NCAA Northeast Regionals held on Friday in Bronx, NY. The freshman has been on top for the Bulls in each race this season. Ward completed the race in 21:08.30 and averaged a 5:41 mile. Her finishing time was enough for a 21st place finish and All-Region Team honors. This is the first time in program history that a freshman has been named to the All-Region Team.

             

Senior Russell Cicerone finished off his amazing UB career with another strong weekend as he helped the Buffalo men’s soccer team advance to their second straight Mid-American Conference Championship match for the first time in program history. The four-time First Team All-MAC selection recorded an assist on David Enstrom’s game-winning goal in overtime against Bowling Green in the MAC Semifinals after collecting a team-high four shots in the match. The assist for Cicerone was his program record 22nd of the season. In Sunday’s MAC Championship match, the MLS hopeful produced the lone goal for the Bulls in their 2-1 loss as he went the distance of the field and buried a pretty goal to the left corner of the net, his career-best 14th goal of the season. For his efforts, Cicerone was named to the MAC All-Tournament team for the second straight season. On the year, the Bloomfield Hills, MI native scored a MAC-best 14 goals, nine assists and 37 points while ranking first in program history in assists in a career (22), second in goals in a career (42) and second in points in a career (106).
