EPAC Men’s & Women’s Basketball Award Winners

The Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference has named their men’s and women’s basketball award winners and all-conference team for 2013-14.

Sophomore Frank De Jesus of Lehigh Carbon Community College was selected as EPAC Player of the Year! This is the first time ever that an LCCC student-athlete has been named Player of the Year.

De Jesus, a resident of Allentown, is majoring in computer forensics and is a William Allen High School grad. He was a first team selection last season.

Named to the 2nd all-conference team for women’s basketball were LCCC sophomores, Christyna Batts (Albrightsville, Pa./ Jim Thorpe HS), and Bridgette Thornton (Macungie, Pa./Emmaus HS). Batts was recently featured in the LCCC graphic novel, The Guardian and the Graduate. Thornton is a three-sport student-athlete – she plays volleyball, basketball and softball.
