Two graduating seniors took top athletic honors this year at Fordham.

Swimmer Brienne Ryan, FCRH ’13, was co-winner of the Claire and Jack Hobbs Award as the University’s top female student-athlete, and football place kicker Patrick Murray, GSB ’13, received the Vincent T. Lombardi Award as Fordham’s top male student-athlete.

Murray enjoyed the most successful season for a Fordham kicker in school history, leading all of the NCAA in field goals with 25 and leading the Patriot League and ranking second in the NCAA in punting average (46.0).

Ryan qualified for the NCAA for the second straight year, finishing 33rd in the 100 backstroke and 37th in the 200 backstroke at Nationals.
