Elmira College Student-Athletes Participate in Empire 8 Summit
Elmira, NY (02/21/2020) — On Friday, January 31, and Saturday, February 1, the Empire 8 Conference hosted its annual Student-Athlete Leadership Summit at the Woodcliff Hotel and Spa in Fairport, New York. According to the E8, the two-day summit was focused on bringing together student-athletes, coaches and administrators from around the conference in a fun and educational environment.
Four student-athletes - Michael Courtney '21 (men's soccer), Savannah Terry '21 (women's volleyball), Kelsey Lofvenborg '22 (women's volleyball), and Luke Frontale '22 (baseball) - represented Elmira College at the summit, participating in a variety of team-building activities with students from other E8 institutions. They also heard from two speakers, who discussed in-depth the theme of this year's event: mental health.
"The Empire 8 Summit is an annual summit that the conference holds with the goal of bringing the athletes, who compete in the Empire 8, closer together off the field," Courtney said. "Each summit has a specific theme, which is usually an issue that the conference wants to address. It is a great opportunity for us as student-athletes to have our voices heard."
