December 20, 2013 – Sussex County Community College has named Kelsee Tironi Woman Student Athlete of the Year and has selected her to represent the college at the National Association of Girls and Women in Sport (NAGWS) recognition day to be held on February 9th, at Seton Hall University. Each year, NAGWS asks all 2 and 4-year New Jersey colleges to select a female student athlete to represent their institution. Last year and this year, Kelsee participated on SCCC’s women’s soccer team and women’s basketball team. She has demonstrated leadership and athletic ability on the field and is a two semester Dean’s List honoree and a member of Phi Theta Kappa (the international community college honor society), boasting a near perfect GPA. She is a graduate of Wallkill Valley Regional High School.
SCCC Assistant Dean of Athletics, Student Activities and Judicial Systems, John Kuntz stated, “We are extremely proud of Kelsee. On the field and in the classroom she reflects the highest ideals of Sussex County Community College in both sportsmanship and scholarship.”
Kelsee was chosen to the 2nd Team All GSAC (Garden State Athletic Conference) and 2nd Team All Region for soccer this fall, and served as a captain for both the women’s soccer team and women’s basketball team. Tironi has also been named to the All GSAC and All Region Academic Teams for both soccer and basketball.
