MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College athletics department has announced its weekly award winners, naming freshman Abby Halsey (Palmyra, N.Y.) and sophomore Nick DeVito (Averill Park, N.Y.) the Mustang Athletes of the Week for the week ending Dec. 3.

She followed that performance with a 13 point outing at Penn College Technology, as Morrisville State collected their second conference win on the season. Against the Wildcats, Halsey shot 71.4% from the floor and 67% from the free throw line, again pulling down five off the glass, while contributing three assists and two steals.
A graduate of Palmyra-Macedon High, Halsey is majoring in criminal justice at Morrisville State. She is the daughter of Stephanie Halsey of Palmyra.
