Emily Gingrich (Women's Soccer) and Torey Doaty (Men's Track & Field) have been selected as the recipients of Saint Joseph's Class of 1950 Awards, as the school's top graduating student-athletes. They will be among the honorees at the University's Commencement on May 20.
Gingrich made her mark as one of the top players in SJU soccer history, finishing her career as the Hawks' all-time leader in goals (43), points (103) and shots (307), while ranking second in career assists (17). She is one of just two players in SJU history to earn Atlantic 10 All-Conference honors all four seasons, and capped her career by being named the A-10's Midfielder of the Year in 2016.
A team co-captain, the senior helped Saint Joseph's achieve a best-ever 18-2-2 record this year and capture its first-ever Atlantic 10 regular-season title.
Gingrich, from Shillington, Pa., was selected to the 2016 Philadelphia Academic All-Area Team and has received mention on the SJU Athletic Director's Honor Roll. She will receive her degree in criminal justice and hopes to pursue a career as a physician's assistant.
Doaty has excelled on the track and is a six-time Atlantic 10 champion (400m hurdles, 500m run, 4x400m relay) and nine-time Atlantic 10 medalist. He has been a member of four SJU relay teams which hold school records and is a three-time NCAA East Regional qualifier.
Doaty, a two-time team co-captain, helped the Hawks to their first-ever IC4A gold medal in the 4x400m relay in 2016. He has won three IC4A medals during his career and has received IC4A All-East honors nine times. He is the only athlete in program history to earn three All-East finishes in the indoor 500m and the only Hawk to earn four All-East finishes in the indoor 4x400m relay.
Originally from Wexford, Pa., he has been twice recognized as a U.S. Track and Field Coaches Association's Academic Scholar while also receiving mention to the SJU Athletic Director's and A-10 Commissioner's Honor Rolls. Doaty, who will receive his degree in accounting, has secured a position with PNC Bank in Pittsburgh and aspires to become a certified public accountant.
