ORONO, Maine — Courtney Anderson of the University of Maine women’s basketball team will be inducted as one of only 13 new members into the prestigious “All Maine Women” Honor Society on Sunday.
The junior from Greene has been a regular contributor for coach Richard Barron’s Black Bears during her career. Last season, she averaged 2.6 points and 1.1 assists in 11.8 minutes per game.
The All Maine Women Honor Society, founded in 1925, recognizes the outstanding women of the rising senior class who exhibit leadership, scholarship and service to the university and campus community.
The All Maine Women is an honorary, but nonscholastic, society that is composed of 12 rising seniors who are chosen on the basis of character, Maine Spirit, honor, dignity and willingness to accept responsibility. Members are pledged to uphold and promote the ideals, the standards and the traditions of the University of Maine.
UMaine’s Carlucci an ‘Owl’
John Carlucci of the UMaine swimming and diving team has been inducted into the Sophomore Owls Honor Society. Carlucci, a marine sciences major from Danbury, Conn., was inducted into the order earlier in the week.
Carlucci competes in the butterfly and the backstroke events for the Black Bears and set three new school records last winter in the 200-yard butterfly, 400-yard IM and the 400-yard medley relay.
The Sophomore Owls, a men’s organization, was founded in 1909 at the university for the purpose of “instilling Maine spirit in the two lower classes and promoting harmony between them, and to interest preparatory school athletes toward entering the University of Maine and to aid them whenever possible.”
The Senior Skulls started the Sophomore Owls in 1909 to help incoming freshmen adjust to the university.
The Sophomore Owls Society is one of the four all-inclusive honor societies at the University of Maine that have come to represent the top 1 percent of their respective classes.
Selection to the society is based on a variety of strong skills including leadership, community involvement, character, academics and commitment to the University of Maine.
