Fredonia State sophomore Collin Barmore is the 2021 SUNYAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in men's outdoor track and field.

Barmore was recognized in a vote of conference sports information directors as the top male track and field athlete who excelled both academically and athletically in 2021. 

A sophomore from Gerry, Barmore is a double major in Interdisciplinary Studies and Environmental Science with an overall GPA of 3.62. He won the SUNYAC title in the 800-meter run at the 2021 outdoor track and field championships (1:54.82). Barmore also ran the third leg on the 4x400 meter relay which finished second in 3:26.68. The quartet went on to finish third at the All-Atlantic Regional meet in a season-best 3:21.79.

"Collin is a great addition to our program," Fredonia State Head Coach Tom Wilson said. "He is a team captain, and is always working hard both for himself and the team. He always has a positive outlook and is a pleasure to coach. (He's) very deserving of this award."

Barmore became the fourth Blue Devil to be honored since the award was established in the fall of 2016. Previous recipients are Meghan Bartlett (women's swimming and diving, 2016-17), Ethan Francis (men's cross country, 2017), and Jacque Law (women's basketball, 2017-18).

The announcement marks a resumption of the awards after a three-season hiatus. SUNYAC suspended the program after Winter 2019-20 sports due to the pandemic.
