VESTAL, N.Y.--Senior middle blocker Anne Crocus (Bethlehem, Pa.) was recently one of 251 college athletes nationwide to have been named an All-American Athlete by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). It marks the first time that an athlete from Binghamton has received such an honor.

Crocus is a four-year letterwinner and two-time America East all-conference selection on the volleyball team. She has been among the nation's leaders in blocks per game during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.

Binghamton strength and conditioning coach Bryan McGovern, who nominated Crocus for the award, cites her hard work in strength training as a significant part of her success.

"Anne is one of the hardest-working athletes I have ever worked with," McGovern said. "She is a tremendous leader on and off the court, and is a great example to all of our student-athletes. Her hard work has paid off in being named twice to the America East All Conference team."

Next month, Crocus will graduate with a degree in human development.
