UMES ATHLETICS TOP MOMENT #3: "THE HARRYS" A RESOUNDING SUCCESS
PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) athletics department’s countdown continues with the inaugural award show, “The Harrys.”
It was a great night to be a Hawk as the venue provided those in attendance with a big screen type atmosphere, similar to the Oscars. The Harrys showcased red carpet, good food and guest announcers. The show began with President Dr. Julliette B. Bell giving the welcome address.
UMES' 2014 Hawk of the Year was presented to former Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) Dr. Henry Brooks while golf’s Kijontray McClay (San Diego, Calif.) and basketball’s Shawnee Sweeney (Chester, Va.) were awarded the Jostens’ Award for Sportsmanship.
