After two years of virtual ceremonies, the 2022 Swoopy Awards returned in-person on May 3, 2022 with excitement and fanfare. The annual banquet recognizes the hard work and dedication on the fields and courts and in the classroom of our student-athletes and teams. It also honors other members of the University community who volunteer their time to support the Athletic Department and our teams.  This year also saw the addition of recognizing and honoring our esports student-athletes who were named to the ECAC Esports All-Academic for the fall 2021 semester.

While not every team and student-athlete could be honored with a Swoopy, in his opening remarks, Athletic Director Ronnie Palmer recognized each team and their successes throughout the academic year, and the resilience of each student-athlete during the last two years.

Congratulations to all the recipients of a 2022 Swoopy Award!
