COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Emory & Henry College strength & conditioning coach Mike Caro has announced the program's NSCA All-Americans for the 2018-19 academic year. Softball senior outfielder Erin Anderson (Aylett, Va.) was the women's recipient while football junior defensive lineman Josh Fleenor (Christiansburg, Va.) earned the award on the men's side.
The recognition is based on athletic accomplishments and dedication to strength & conditioning. Their determination to improve in athletics while maintaining academic prominence is a great model for all student-athletes at E&H. The awards were official presented at the Sixth Annual Blue & Golden Globes on May 1.
Anderson was an All-ODAC Third Team selection this spring as she as she hit .285 with a .363 on-base percentage. She drew 18 walks and stole 22 bases, scoring 26 runs and belting 39 hits, including eight for extra bases. Fleenor missed most of the past season with an injury coming off an all-league and all-region performance in 2017. His leadership role on the team - especially in the weight room - during this time contributed heavily to his selection.
