EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern's January Sports Performance Athletes of the Month are fifth year senior Trevor Stevens of baseball and sophomore Katie Wooliver of women's golf, Assistant A.D. for Sports Performance Jason Pullara announced today.
"Both of these student-athletes are on the brink of their competitive seasons and have done everything possible to prepare themselves for success this spring," Assistant A.D. for Sports Performance Jason Pullara said. They are two great examples of our tremendous student-athletes and it gives our department great pride to recognize them."
Trevor Stevens (Baseball)
Trevor Stevens has been a true leader both on and off the field. Stevens consistently pushes himself and his teammates past complacency. His intensity, determination and purposeful execution is awe-inspiring and rivaled by very few in the collegiate setting. "Trevor is one of the most determined and dedicated athletes I've ever been around. Acting as a team captain, he's played a major role in his team's offseason success," sports performance coach Joe Nudo said.
Katie Wooliver (Women's Golf)
When Northwestern Women's Golf head coach Emily Fletcher added Katie Wooliver to the team in 2011, she characterized the Ohio native as someone who "possesses all the qualities we value and I know she will be a terrific representative of our program and our University."
"Having the privilege to coach Katie as a sports performance coach, it becomes more and more evident why Coach Fletcher would sing such praises after each successive workout," Performance Intern Tom Schneider said. "Some student-athletes across the country begrudge the 7 a.m. workout, but Katie thrives in the early morning knowing it's another chance to get better. Some student-athletes need a little nudge to get them rolling, Katie needs traffic lights to get her to stop from going and going. Her attitude, spirit, and effort are infectious and elevate her team to new levels in the performance facility."
Wooliver is the example of a sports performance coach's dream; all fight, no fuss.
