Englewood, Colo. — Former Mid Vermont Christian School athlete Sam Proctor received the Western Athletic Conference’s Stan Bates Award on Thursday as one of the league’s top student-athletes.

A cross country and track standout for Grand Canyon University, Proctor has been the top distance runner for the Phoenix-based school for three years. A first-team all-WAC selection in both sports on six occasions, Proctor was runner-up at last fall’s conference cross country championship. He also took second in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters at the WAC indoor champsionships and second in the 5,000 at this spring’s WAC outdoor meet.

Proctor carries a 3.92 grade-point average and is on track to graduate with dual degrees in exercise science and business management next year.

A one-time South Royalton resident, Proctor attended MVCS through ninth grade before moving to Maine. He graduated from Bangor Christian School in 2013.

CSC’s Miller Honored by USTA

New London — Colby-Sawyer senior Evelyn Miller was named the top female tennis player by USTA Rhode Island this week.

Miller will receive USTA-RI’s Jill Craybas Award on Wednesday during the Hall of Fame Championships in Newport, R.I.

The award goes to the top college women’s tennis player from the state, but winners need not necessarily attend a Rhode Island school.

A Smithfield native, Miller went 14-6 in singles and 18-6 in doubles last season for the Chargers.
