Nairn and Ruth Named Athletes of the Year

Christine Nairn, a midfielder for the women’s soccer team, and Ed Ruth, a 184-pound wrestler, were named Penn State’s athletes of the year yesterday.

Nairn was an NSCAA first-team All-American and Big Ten Midfielder of the Year this past season. Nairn was drafted by the Seattle Reign to join the National Women’s Soccer League in their first year as the seventh overall pick. Nairn had 17 goals and 12 assists during the season, including a game winning goal in the national semifinals against Florida.

After moving up a weight class this season, junior Ed Ruth is now a three-time All-American. Ruth notched his second straight undefeated season, posting a 33-0 record, and a second NCAA titile. Ruth, the Big Ten wrestler of the year, only had six matches were he did not score bonus points.

Nairn and Ruth are now eligible to become Big Ten Athletes of the Year, which will be voted on by select media who cover Big Ten sports.
