carlisle to help fund new locker rooms for saints

From St. Lawrence University Sports Information
Thanks to Preston Carlisle '52, the Saints women's basketball team will unveil a new locker room this fall. Carlisle, a North Country attorney, made a commitment of $100,000 to the room and has challenged other alumni and Laurentians to support this and other athletic projects. "Preston has been exceptionally generous to our department's needs for nearly two decades," said St. Lawrence Director of Athletics Margie Strait M'73. "He has helped fund renovations to Burkman Gymnasium and the Appleton Golf Course clubhouse, and supported ongoing program enhancements for our student-athletes." Carlisle was the recipient of the 2014 Scarlet and Brown Award, given annually by the Athletics Department to a member of the St. Lawrence University network who supports the mission of the department as it pertains to academic and athletic success as well as student-athlete development and experience. Basketball is one of his family's passions, as Preston previously served as a volunteer coach with the women's basketball team in the early 2000's and his son Rick coached the Dallas Mavericks to the 2011 NBA Championship. Departmental initiatives that Carlisle continues to support include the Senior Student-Athlete Awards Dinner and gifts to the seniors and team captains. He is a regular attendee at Saints sporting events and offers encouragement and advice to both the staff and student-athletes. "Preston and Joan have a strong presence in the North Country," added Strait, "We are fortunate to call him a friend."

two SUNY plattsburgh players in hudson league

From Plattsburgh State Sports Information
A pair of SUNY Plattsburgh baseball players spent their respective summers competing for two different teams in the Hudson Valley Collegiate Baseball League (HVCBL). Both Ross Levinson and Manny Boccini earned spots on different teams in the nine-team league. Levinson, who will enter his junior year during the 2014-15 school year, took the mound as a relief pitcher for the Hudson Valley Hurricanes. The native of Monroe, N.Y., worked 30.1 innings for the Hurricanes and finished the season with a 4-0 record while sporting an ERA of 2.54. He surrendered just 11 earned runs and racked up 20 strikeouts. As one of the best relief arms in the league, Levinson was selected to the HVCBL All-Star Game in mid-July. He entered the game and tossed one inning in which he retired the only three batters he faced. During his first year with the HVCBL, Boccini signed on with the Putnam Athletics. Through 47 plate appearance, the Poughkeepsie, N.Y., product turned in a batting line of .361/.417/.477 before a shoulder injury forced him to miss the remainder of the season. Boccini was on pace to make one of the HVCBL All-Star Teams before his injury. Levinson's Hurricanes racked up the best regular season record in the nine-team league with a record of 23-5. The Athletics worked their way to a mark of 10-18. The 2014 HVCBL season wrapped up on July 31 with the DP Pirates taking the best-of-five league championship series 3-1 over the Kingston Braves.
 

suny canton JUST one year from ncaa membership

From SUNY Canton Sports Information
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III Management Council has announced that SUNY Canton has been approved to enter its fourth and final year of provisional membership, effective Sept. 1. The decision affirms a June vote by the Division III Membership Committee recommending the College's advancement toward full membership. SUNY Canton recently completed its second year of provisional status, and is just one year away from becoming an active NCAA Division III member. Schools typically must go through four years of provisional status before they are recommended for active membership. However, SUNY Canton applied for and was granted a waiver to consolidate year three and year four of the process. "We are honored and ecstatic with the NCAA's decision to waive our third year of provisional membership allowing us to take this huge step forward," said SUNY Canton Athletic Director Randy B. Sieminski. "Our coaches, student-athletes, staff, faculty, administration, College Council and numerous departments campus-wide should be credited with their commitment toward making this transition. Their work and dedication is making it possible for us to successfully advance in this process." SUNY Canton recently added five new sports in a three-year span to their athletics program offerings. The athletics department has seen tremendous growth during this time, doubling the number of female student-athletes, and increasing its total number of student-athletes from fewer than 150 to nearly 300. The college sponsors intercollegiate teams in men's and women's soccer, men's and women's cross country, women's volleyball, men's golf, men's and women's ice hockey, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, and men's and women's lacrosse. "This is a tribute to the hard work the SUNY Canton Athletics staff have done to make sure that our programs meet and exceed the expectations of the NCAA," said President Zvi Szafran. "Our student-athletes consistently demonstrate their outstanding dedication in their sport and their studies. Sieminski added the membership process encompasses nearly every area of the college, and the Athletic Department greatly appreciates the efforts of colleagues and professionals campuswide. "I'd also like to thank all the outstanding people we work with from the NCAA, especially Director of Division III Louise McCleary, Assistant Director of Academic and Membership Affairs Jean Orr and our NCAA Mentor Joe Walsh from the Great Northeast Athletic Conference," added Sieminski. "They've been extraordinarily helpful and welcoming in guiding us through this process." All of SUNY Canton's athletic programs have competitive schedules against top Division III programs such as nearby St. Lawrence University, Clarkson University, and SUNY Potsdam.
