NH College Notebook: Colby-Sawyer Athletic Hall of Fame to add three athletes

COLBY-SAWYER COLLEGE will induct three student-athletes and one team as new members of its Athletic Hall of Fame this fall. This year's honorees include basketball player Ashley (Bramwell) Arruda '02, volleyball player Kathy (Couture) Bresciano '06, alpine ski racer Chance Longley '07, and the 1999 volleyball team.

Colby-Sawyer will host an induction ceremony for the 2013 Athletic Hall of Fame athletes on Oct. 6, at 11 a.m. in the Ware Campus Center.

Arruda of Marshfield, Mass., was an instrumental player during one of the most successful stretches in women's basketball program history. She was a legitimate back-to-the-basket post player who could score with both hands.

Bresciano of Turners Fall, Mass., was one of the most successful four-year volleyball players ever to play at Colby-Sawyer. She helped lead the Chargers to a pair of Commonwealth Coast Conference championships and a program best 30 wins in 2005. A force at the net, she was named CCC Rookie of the Year in 2002 and landed on the All-CCC First Team three times.

Longley of Stratton, Vt., was a four-year member of the Colby-Sawyer alpine ski racing team. He earned six United States Collegiate Ski & Snowboard Association All-America awards, which was tied for most upon graduation, and is currently second most. He owns a pair of top-10 finishes at the USCSA National Championships with a seventh place in slalom in 2004 and a 10th place in giant slalom in 2007. As a senior, Chance placed fourth in the giant slalom at the Eastern Collegiate Ski Conference Regional Championships, which helped propel the Chargers to the top spot in the standings.

The Chargers' 1999 women's volleyball team recorded a program best 30 wins and went undefeated in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC). The team earned the program's first conference title and first trip to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Championships. In the NCAA tournament, the Chargers earned a 3-0 win over Johnson & Wales to advance to the second round of the championships.

Sophomore runner Laura Rose Donegan (Melbourne, Australia) of the University of New Hampshire women's cross country team ran to a sixth-place finish as she competed at the Australian Cross Country Championships on Aug. 31. She came in with a time of 29:55 in the 8K course. As a result of the strong performance, she is now the reigning U-23 Australian National Champion.

As a freshman in 2012, Donegan finished as an all-conference America East runner with her 10th place finish at the America East Championships. She was also conference and New England runner-up in the 3,000-meter steeplechase.
