Awards for Chiney, Sara, Amber and Erica

The Stanford Athletic Board held its annual award ceremony last week in which they honored 57 student-athletes in 31 varsity sports.

Chiney was co-recipient (with Patrick Rodgers, men's golf) of the highest award — the Al Masters Award, which is presented to the Stanford athlete attaining the highest standards of athletic performance, leadership and academic achievement. This is the second time that Chiney has received this award. She was co-recipient last year with Mark Appel (baseball).

Chiney also received the Pac-12 Tom Hansen Conference Medal, which is awarded to each member institution's outstanding senior male and female student-athlete based on the exhibition of the greatest combination of performance and achievement in scholarship, athletics and leadership.

Chiney was also honored for her receipt in March of the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete, women's basketball.

Sara was awarded a Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarship, which the conference awards to student-athletes who have excelled academically and athletically and whose dedication and effort are reflective of those characteristics necessary to succeed and thrive through postgraduate study in an accredited graduate degree program.

Amber was honored as a Block S Outstanding Female Junior.

Erica was honored for her receipt in Nashville last March of the NCAA Elite 89 Award, which is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA Division I championships.

Here is the awards ceremony program, which lists all the awards and honorees.

Tara and Amy attended the awards ceremony in Bing Hall, but none of the women's basketball honorees were present — at least, they didn't appear in any of the photos in this Stanford Photo gallery.
