Chicago, Ill. The Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference was recently named Holy Cross College’s Amy Heiby the CCAC Athletic Trainer of the Year for 2021-2022.
“We are delighted that the conference has selected Amy as the athletic trainer of the year,” said Holy Cross College Athletic Director Tom Robbins. “She has faced tremendous challenges this year and met those challenges with the same grace and nurturing spirit she has been known for. For several years our student-athletes and coaches have been blessed to receive the high-quality care that Amy has provided. However, this last year we realized her ability to do that under considerable strain without losing her grace, patience, and positivity. Her greatest strength is that most of our department didn’t even know she was under any strain.”
Amy Heiby has been with Holy Cross College since 2008 and has been the head athletic trainer for 14 years. She was awarded CCAC Athletic Trainer of the Year in 2012, as well. Since arriving at HC, Amy has elevated the health care practice overall within the athletic department. Amy has served as vice chair of the CCAC Athletic Trainers for many years and was recently appointed head chair for CCAC Athletic Trainers’ Association. She has implemented injury prevention programs for the student-athletes, brought new modality treatments to the health care at Holy Cross College, and new techniques that have increased student-athlete injury recovery.
The mission of Holy Cross College’s Athletic Training Department is to aid each student-athlete to develop to his or her fullest potential, both physically and mentally. The primary function of the Athletic Training room is the prevention and management of injuries and illness that may affect student-athletes during their time at Holy Cross College.
Congratulations and thank you Amy for all that you do for the Holy Cross College student-athletes.
