When continuing COVID restrictions made it impossible for to hold the Fall Sports Convocation in person as planned, Athletic Director Neil Weiner decided to pivot. Instead, he hosted a virtual version of the traditional convocation to honor the standout performances by our fall sports athletes. Congratulations to all of our fall sports athletes for their hard work and efforts in the pursuit of excellence for their Tiger teams. The complete list of awards presented follows.
