Erik Sheets was named Providence Hall’s Phil Womble Award winner for the 2012-13 school year at the weekly Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon on Monday.
Sheets, a junior, was presented by Dave Pintard and Lions Athletic Director Keith Luberto. The award’s namesake, Phil Womble, was in attendance for the first time this school year as were Erik’s parents Julie and Dave Sheets.
“I’ve been an athletic director for just about 14 years now, and Erik is one of my all-time favorite athletes,” Luberto said. “Erik always shows respect to the game, to the opponents, to the officials. It really is a blessing and a priveleage that he’s a part of Providence Hall.”
Sheets plays basketball, volleyball, cross country and track & field for the Lions.
