Women’s basketball forward Rain Hinton was placed in the Student-Athlete Spotlight in the Jan. 28 vote by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

A sophomore from Fort Wayne, Ind., leads Albion at 14.6 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. She is shooting 50 percent from the field for the season.

Track & field athletes Kimberly Barber and Cassie Vince and swimmer Samantha Swingewood were the other nominees.

Barber, the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Field Athlete of the Week for Jan. 28, achieved a school record (35’ 10 ¾”) to win the triple jump competition and ran of the 4x200 and 4x400-meter relay teams during the Dr. William Taraschke Team Challenge.

Vince owns the second-fastest time in the mile by a Division III woman at this point of the season after completing her race in 4:54.84 in the same meet.

Swingewood finished first in the 200-yard butterfly and 400 individual medley in Albion’s dual meet at Hope College.
