They are senior womenís tennis player Andrea Isaac (New Philadelphia), junior menís tennis player James Daly (Akron/ Firestone), sophomore womenís track standout Ashley Scullion (Grand Rapids, Mich./ East Kentwood) and freshman menís golfer Nick Bryan (Zanesville/ Bishop Rosecrans).
Isaac, the number one singles and a part of the No.2 doubles tandem, was 2-0 in singles and 2-0 in doubles last week as BW beat both Tiffin University (7-2) and Muskingum College (9-0) last Saturday. The two singles wins ran her mark to 13-5 this season. In doubles, Isaac and partner, junior Meggie Glassburn (Canton/ Perry) combined for two wins and ran their win streak to 12 straight this season with a 15-3 overall record. Isaac extended her school career records to 76 wins in singles, 73 in doubles and 149 combination wins. She is both the 2004 and 2006 OAC Player of the Year and this OAC Player of the Week award is the seventh in her career.
Daly, the menís No.1 singles and a No.1 doubles player, won both his singles match and combined with sophomore Jim Kucera (Mentor) to win in doubles to beat Muskingum, 7-2, and earn the OAC Player of the Week accolades for the fourth time in his career. In singles, Daly improved to 16-2 overall this season and is 67-7 in his career and 12 wins away from the BW career singles victory mark of 79. Daly and Kucera are 13-1 at No.1 doubles and have won their last 13 matches in a row. For his career, Daly is 58-9 in doubles and has a career combination mark of 125-16 for an .887 winning percentage.
Scullion, a distance ace and national qualifier last fall in cross country and this winter indoors in the 1500 and 5000-meter runs individually and as a member of the Distance Medley Relay team, was named as the OAC Runner of the Week for the seventh time this school year (2006-2007: three in cross country, three in indoor track and once in outdoor track). Last Saturday, at the Muskingum College Invitational, Scullion won the 800 meters in 2:18.28 and the 1500 meter run in 4:43.26 and led BW to a second place finish among 12 teams. Both times were career-bests for Scullion.
Bryan, playing in his first Yellow Jacket spring tournament, fired rounds of 73 and 75 at the par-70 and 6,508-yard Eaglesticks Golf Club layout in his hometown of Zanesville. His 148-stroke total placed him in a tie for ninth individually and tied for the top finisher from an OAC school as BW finished second of 12 teams. Bryan led BW during its six-tournament fall schedule with a 77.3 stroke average and currently stands second after two spring events at 78.4 strokes per round. This is his first OAC Player of the Week award.
