CHAPEL HILL - The UNC Olympic Sport Strength and Conditioning Department is pleased to announce the results of the 2012-13 SuperRam and IronRam competition. Each year the Olympic sport athletes train, and compete, for the title of UNC's top female and top male athlete as measured by their athletic development (strength, power, agility, speed, and endurance).
Those that achieve the highest score, quantifying the aforementioned athletic attributes, on an eight-part test battery earn this designation. The IronRam award is given to the female and male athlete who exhibits the greatest relative strength [(bench press + squat) ÷ bodyweight].
SuperRam and IronRam Individual Awards
The top overall women's performer was Abby Frey (field hockey), winning for a second year in a row, and the men's top athlete was Andy Craven (soccer). Frey was a repeat winner in the IronRam, as well, with newcomer Dontrevious Ousley (track and field) earning the honor for the men.
Baseball earned top team honors for the men, and the lacrosse team narrowly edged out the field hockey team for the women's title.
