Salisbury's Sullivan awarded CAC Medal of Inspiration

Salisbury senior field hockey player Breck Sullivan was one of three recipients of the Capital Athletic Conference Medal of Inspiration, awarded annually since 2013 to individuals who have persevered through extraordinary circumstances.

Sullivan, a two-time first-team All-CAC selection who finished her college career last fall, sprained her ankle in the preseason as a freshman and tore her right hamstring later that season, limiting her to seven games as a freshman and eight as a sophomore before she returned for the semifinal round of the 2013 NCAA Division III tournament. In that game, she reinjured her hamstring but continued to play to help the Sea Gulls advance to the championship game.

With the help of trigger point therapy, in which needles are placed into the skin in an effort to release muscle knots, she missed just one game throughout her junior and senior seasons. Sullivan, who was named to the NCAA All-Tournament team in 2014, played a role in three CAC titles and four NCAA tournament appearances for the Sea Gulls.
