Several members of the track and field team were on hand Thursday night to receive a special honor from the UCF Student Government Association.
The SGA presented the Knights with a resolution to congratulate the team on its successful 2012 season that saw the Knights clinch their fourth Conference USA championship, claim 13 All-American honors and send four competitors to the USA Olympic Trials.
"The reason the Senate chose to honor the team was because it is a huge source of UCF pride to see the success of our athletic teams," said Matthew Goodison-Orr, chairman of the Campus Relations Committee. "The Senate, especially the Campus Relations Committee, serves to acknowledge the accomplishments of the students that make this university as great as it is. Winning a championship is not easy as it requires hard work and determination of unimaginable levels. The women's track team deserves to recognized for the fruits of their labor."
Assistant coach Paul Brown and sophomore Sandy Jean along with UCF captains Erica Weiss and Sonnisha Williams accepted the recognition on the team's behalf. The quartet received a standing ovation from the Senate.
