Amon Chosen November CACC Student-Athlete Of The Month
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Maddy Amon, a junior volleyball student-athlete at Caldwell College, has been chosen the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) November Student-Athlete of the Month, announced by Commissioner Dan Mara. The CACC Student-Athlete of the Month award is handed out from September to May to student-athletes who thrive in athletics, in the classroom and in the community.
Amon, a native of Shelbyville, KY., has thrived on the volleyball court and in the classroom during her three years as a Caldwell Cougar. Maddy has found time outside of the court to volunteer her time with Campus Ministry where she helps bring food and clothing to the homeless in New York City as a part of the Midnight Run. The Midnight Run’s goal is to forge a bond between housed and homeless people by establishing a foundation of sharing and caring from solutions may evolve. The volunteers share their time with the homeless men and women to show they have commitments and concerns that go beyond their own lives and families.
Maddy also serves as a member on Caldwell’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). While attending Caldwell College she has made the Dean’s List four times through the spring of 2011 and earned a spot on the CACC Fall All-Academic Team in 2010. Additionally in 2010 she received the Academic Achievement Award from the Division II Athletic Directors Association.
Amon currently holds a 3.61 grade-point average and is a Sociology major. On the court, she led Caldwell to back-to-back CACC Championships while recording 426 digs on the season and ranked fifth in the CACC with 4.30 digs per set. During her sophomore campaign she was an All-CACC Honorable Mention for her 4.75 digs per set. Maddy currently holds the Cougars record for most career digs with 1,410 and was the first to ever record 1,000 digs.
