Monogram Club MVP Awards Recognize Top Notre Dame Student-Athletes For 2004-05

May. 2, 2005

Each Notre Dame varsity team recently presented their respective Monogram Club Team MVP awards. The awards are sponsored by the Notre Dame Monogram Club and recognize the most valuable performers from 24 different Irish teams (with combined awards for indoor and outdoor track and field).

Former Notre Dame student manager Marty Allen – who recently served as president of the Monogram Club and currently is an advisor on the Club’s board of directors – was on hand at the Notre Dame men’s basketball banquet to present the Monogram Club MVP Award to senior point guard Chris Thomas.

One day earlier, former Notre Dame fencer and current Monogram Club board member Liz Bathon Brown made a similar presentation at the Notre Dame women’s basketball banquet, with senior forward Jacqueline Batteast picking up her fourth Monogram Club MVP Award.
