Hinchcliff Named NCAA Postgraduate Scholar

HAVERFORD, Pa. – Haverford College senior volleyball player Emily Hinchcliff was one of 58 NCAA student-athletes awarded a postgraduate scholarship as announced by the NCAA on Tuesday. The winners (29 men and 29 women) represent fall-sports participants who will receive one-time, nonrenewable grants of $7,500.

 

In her senior season Hinchcliff led the volleyball team to the third round of the NCAA Division III tournament and to a school record in victories. In helping the Fords’ to a 31-3 overall record, Hinchcliff broke the Haverford record for assists (4,707) in a career. Hinchcliff was second in assists per game in the Centennial Conference and 29th nationally (11.78). She ended the season with 1,308 assists and was named to the AVCA all-region honorable mention team and second-team Academic All-District II College Division team selected by CoSIDA. Hinchcliff was named 2007 Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area Volleyball Performer of the Year this past December.

 

The senior biology major from Ithaca, N.Y. is a Beckman Scholar, which recognizes outstanding undergraduate research in the biological sciences. A three-time Centennial Honor Roll selection, Hinchcliff is also the founder of “Haverford in Hospitals” volunteer group.

 

Hinchcliff is the 21st Haverford student-athlete to receive a postgraduate scholarship. The last came in 2006 when both Laura Chaddock (women’s tennis) and Grant Scott (men’s cross country; men’s track and field) were awarded scholarships.
