Toms River, NJ - Emily Steinberg was honored as the Ocean County College Female Athlete of the Year at the National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) celebration on January 29th at Seton Hall University. It is a great accomplishment to be chosen as a NGWSD recipient, as only one female athlete from each college is selected each year.
Sponsored by the New Jersey Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, the theme of this year's state-wide celebration was "Expanding Opportunity". Emily and the rest of the 2017 recipients were honored in a room of over 850 athletic administrators, coaches, athletes, parents and supporters.
Steinberg was a standout, first team All-Region XIX award-winning tennis player for the Vikings who won the Region XIX Singles Championship in her freshman season and led the team to a fifth place finish in the NJCAA Division III National Tennis Tournament this past October in her sophomore season. Congratulations to Emily for receiving this prestigious award!
