Their credentials and accomplishments are then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from around SUNY as well as the Provost’s Office for the system.

The sophomore led the SUNY Athletic Conference in assists per game (.412) and tied for the conference lead in total assists (7) on the season. The Plattsburgh native posted nine points for the Lakers during the 2013 campaign while helping Oswego advance to the SUNYAC Championship for the first time since 2002.

Waterbury was named to the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division III Women’s All-East Region third team and SUNYAC Conference first team for accomplishments on the field. She also earned Oswego State Female Athlete of the Week and SUNYAC Offensive Player of the Week following her multi-point game against Fredonia on Oct. 12.

Off the field, Waterbury majors in wellness management with a double minor in athletic coaching and health science and was selected to the Commissioner’s List and All-Academic Team last fall. She is proactive in community service and an active participant in intramurals on campus. She will be a peer advisor in the fall.
