Norfolk, VA — Thashaina Seraus (Oranjestad, Aruba) ended her Maryland Eastern Shore career by winning back-to-back Female Athlete of The Year awards — the highest honor from Hawk Athletics. On Monday (June 26) Seraus added the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s highest honor to her career resume.
The MEAC has named Seraus as the 2017 Woman of the Year, the conference office announced today.
“I would like to congratulate Thashaina Seraus for having a spectacular career, not only in bowling, but in her academic pursuits as well,” said MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis Thomas. “In addition, her service to the community is truly exceptional. I would like to thank the University of Maryland Eastern Shore athletic staff, coaches and academic support personnel who had an influential part in Thashaina’s success. I wish her continued success in her future endeavors.”
The award, selected annually by the MEAC Senior Woman Administrators, celebrates the achievements of senior female student-athletes who have excelled in academics, athletics, service and leadership.
“It is a great honor,” Seraus said from the airport on her way to compete for Aruba in the Central American Championship in Guatamala. “It’s great news especially coming back from competing [in the TV round of the PWBA Lincoln Open].”
