West Virginia University club sports continue to add to their accolades this spring, as several students from different teams earned individual or team awards.
Shannon Reilley, a junior social work major from Smithsburg, Maryland, was named the 156-pound national champion at the National Collegiate Boxing Championships in April. She is the first-ever 156-pound national champion and the second-ever WVU boxing national champion. Six members of the boxing club competed at the championship event. Junior Sabrina Kehr finished as the national runner-up at 147 pounds. As a team, the Mountaineers finished second in the nation.
WVU figure skating club president Angela Kreger, club member Gina Geils and club founder and WVU graduate Alicia Marcucci coached three junior members of the Mason-Dixon Figure Skating Club to an impressive seven-medal showing at the 31st annual Mt. Lebanon Invitational in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this spring.
WVU golf club member Mason Short also celebrated the highest honor in his respective sport, as he captured the individual championship at the National Collegiate Golf Championships in Newark, New Jersey.
The rugby club finished in the top eight in the country, as well, after a Northeast Regional victory over Princeton in April.
