Harrison receives Webster Cup Award for athletics

MUHS Class of 2009 graduate Sean Harrison was presented with the Webster Cup Award during the 2010 Commencement at Holderness School in Plymouth, N.H.

The Webster Cup Award is the gift of a former rector, the Rev. Lorin Webster, to be awarded for excellence in athletics. The student receives a cup and the student's name is to be engraved on a plaque to be retained by the school.

The award by Head of School Phil Peck was presented by Coach Richard Eccleston reads as follows: "Sean Harrison is the recipient of the 2010 Webster Cup Award for Excellence in Athletics. Sean is a three sport varsity athlete. In just one short year at Holderness, Sean made such an impression on is teammates and coaches that he was voted captain. In football he was awarded All League honors by all of the coaches. He led the team in offense and defense. After every football game the opposing coach would ask about no. 34. In hockey, he was a member of the power play and man down units. In many key situations, Coach Cirone made sure Sean was on the ice. In baseball, Sean led the team in on base percentage and was at the top of the pitching rotation. In this era of specialization, it's refreshing to see the three sport athlete still alive and well at Holderness." Harrison has been recruited at Hobart College in Geneva, N.Y., and will report for pre-season football training Aug. 18.
