In the wake of the men’s basketball team’s loss to Washington University in St. Louis in the national division III title game, playmaker Andrew Olson ’08 had reason to be somewhat cheerful: He was subsequently recognized with the 2008 National Player of the Year award by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and named to the D3hoops.com All America First-Team for the second consecutive season. He isn’t the only Amherst athlete racking up the honors: swimmer Brittany Sasser ’08 was named one of 11 nominees for the Division III Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year by The Collegiate Women Sports Awards Program.
