As part of Homecoming festivities, Muhlenberg junior Amy Schmidt received the Sidney G. Weikert Sophomore Athlete of the Year Award for her Amy Schmidt (soccer) performance during the 2003-04 academic year.

The annual award recognizes athletic achievement with accompanying campus contribution and strong academic record. It was established in 1973 by the Muhlenberg College Alumni Association in memory of the late Sidney G. Weikert, a loyal alumnus and former associate Amy Schmidt (tennis) director of admissions at Muhlenberg.

Schmidt excelled in both soccer and tennis as a sophomore, helping both teams to Centennial Conference championships. She was the first Muhlenberg athlete in more than 60 years to play for two conference championship teams in the same academic year.

The year did not start out on the right foot, as the women’s soccer team lost its CC opener to McDaniel. From that point on, however, Schmidt’s teams won 21 straight matches against conference opponents: nine in the soccer regular season, two in the soccer conference tournament and all 10 in the tennis season. Both teams ended the year ranked in the top 30 in Division III (soccer 23rd and tennis 28th).

Schmidt was a starting midfielder on the soccer team, scoring two goals and adding two assists. She played first and second singles and first doubles in tennis, reaching the CC final in both. Schmidt had a combined 31-7 record in singles and doubles and was ranked 24th in Division III for doubles.

A biology major, Schmidt also was named to the CC Academic Honor Roll for both sports.
