COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Women's basketball senior Bridget Connor (Albuquerque, N.M. / Albuquerque Acad.) has been named a 2015 All-American Athlete Award recipient by the National Strength and Conditioning Association and EAS Sports Nutrition.
The All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year Award program recognizes collegiate and high school athletes whose athletic accomplishments, in the opinion of their strength coach, reflect their dedication to strength training and conditioning. These athletes are also recognized for their academic and personal accomplishments and their integrity as student athletes.
Connor's dedication to cardiovascular conditioning and injury resistance proved critical in her senior season as she led the SCIAC with a significant 37.3 minutes per game while starting all 25 contests on one of the smallest rosters in the country. Unanimously regarded as one of the hardest-working student-athletes on campus, she displayed outstanding drive and competitive edge in leading the team, against all odds, to back-to-back conference victories in the final full week of the season. Her relentless effort and impassioned verbal inspiration reflected her elite leadership as she dedicated countless extra hours to refining her fitness, strength and basketball skills.
Connor will be recognized in the NSCA's annual All-American Strength and Conditioning Athletes of the Year book at nsca.com.
