On Monday night, Liberty Athletics celebrated with its fifth annual FLAMESPY Award show during which two student-athletes were received the Dr. Jerry Falwell Leadership Award.
Field hockey's Hannah Jones was the female recipient, while men's soccer's Tim Harbison was selected the male award winner. The award is presented annually to one male who have exemplified Dr. Falwell's vision through leadership, commitment to academics, athletic talent and service to others.
Jones finished up a stellar four-year career with the Lady Flames in 2015, starting all 18 contests during her senior campaign. The native of Mechanicsburg, Pa., ranked sixth on Liberty's roster with 19 points (six goals, seven assists) and was one of two players on Liberty's team with a shooting percentage above 50 percent (54.5 percent on 11 shots).
Jones helped the Lady Flames finished the 2015 season with a 12-6 record, competing during the year as an independent. Liberty was ranked 10 weeks in the top 20 polls, including the program's highest ranking at No. 8 on Oct. 13. The Lady Flames finished the year ranked No. 14.
Harbison completed an impressive run during the 2015 season, as the native of Auburn, Ala., started all 74 games of his four-year career at Liberty.
He was an All-Big South first-team honoree as a junior and a second-team all-conference selection during his senior season. The two-year team captain also was named to the 2014 VaSID all-state first-team listing.
During his senior year, Harbison ranked third on Liberty's roster with six points off of three goals. He finished his career with 30 points, netting 12 career goals and six career assists.
