NCAA News Profiles W&L's Goodman
Isaiah Goodman, who just graduated from Washington and Lee last month, is the cover story on the NCAA News at the moment. The NCAA News is an online magazine that the national organization publishes, and you’ll find Kevin Remington’s photo of Isaiah hanging from a wire on the wall of Wilson Hall prominently displayed on the site. If you missed it, Isaiah, who captained the Generals’ basketball team in each of the last two seasons, was one of the W&L students participating in the aerial dance class during Spring Term. Jenefer Davis, visiting assistant professor of dance, created the class in part as a research project on this form of dance. She discusses the class on this slide show, and there’s also a story about the two performances the class gave. The class drew considerable media attention locally with TV and newspaper coverage, but the NCAA News has taken both W&L’s aerial dance and Isaiah to the national level. The article’s author, McKindra, actually had the chance to interview Isaiah in person when she met him in Kansas City last month. Isaiah is serving as the chair of the Division III Student-Athlete Advisory Committee through September 2010.
