MICHAEL GREENBERG 

Chapel Hill, NC / East Chapel Hill

Class of 2010 — Men’s Tennis

Michael Greenberg made an immediate impact as a member of the Kenyon men’s tennis program. In the 2008 season, he whipped up a 33-2 overall record, the best single-season mark in team history. His remarkable run included a 22-match win streak, one that concluded with him winning the NCAA Division III Singles Championship in a 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Filip Marickovich of Middlebury College.
 
Greenberg wound up with an 81-15 career singles record and a career win percentage of .844, which were both program records at that time.

Throughout his collegiate career, Greenberg was a two-time Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-America singles honoree, ITA All-America doubles honoree and twice won the ITA’s Scholar-Athlete Award. He led the Kenyon men to four straight conference championship crowns and was a three-time North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Year.

CLAIRE HOWARD LOW

La Crosse, WI / La Crosse

Class of 1986 — Women’s Tennis

Claire Howard Low was the first Kenyon woman to qualify for the NCAA Division III Singles Championship. During that 1986 season, her senior year, Howard compiled a 14-2 record playing at the No. 1 singles spot. She also played at the No. 1 spot in doubles action and posted an 11-4 record.

She won the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) Singles Tournament and led the team to its first-ever conference title. She garnered All-NCAC first-team honors and was the first Kenyon student-athlete to be named NCAC Player of the Year in the sport of tennis.

Prior to winning the NCAC crown and producing a perfect record of 10-0, Howard and the Kenyon team won the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) Tournament for the first time in program history. During that tournament, Howard placed third in both the singles and doubles brackets.

WARREN MARTIN
Marion, OH / Marion Catholic
Class of 1978 — Football


A force on the defensive line, Warren Martin developed into a highly-recognized football player, both at the conference and national levels.

He began his Kenyon career as a nose guard, but soon switched to defensive tackle. In his sophomore season, he piled up 54 tackles and 21 assists. Then, as a junior in 1976, he made 100 tackles with 30 assists. Kenyon went 6-3 that season and the defense allowed an average of just 7.2 points per game.

Injuries put a damper on Martin’s senior season, but he still managed 41 tackles and 18 assists in seven games, bringing his career numbers to 246 solo tackles, 124 assists and a Kenyon record 34 quarterback sacks.

Martin was a three-time All-American and a two-time first-team All-Ohio Athletic Conference honoree. He was a four-year letterwinner, a team captain and Kenyon’s 1978 Senior Athlete of the Year.

TONY MOHAMMED
Brampton, Ontario / St. Thomas
Class of 1997 — Men’s Soccer


With Tony Mohammed as front-row leader in the mid-1990s, the Kenyon soccer program posted a combined 64-9-7 record over four seasons. That time frame also covered two North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) championships and four NCAA Division III Tournament appearances, including a run to the 1993 NCAA semifinal game and the 1996 NCAA championship game.

Mohammed continually improved with time. As a junior, he tallied 10 goals and 6 points in 16 games. As a senior, he led the team with 39 points on 16 goals and seven assists. He was a three-time All-NCAC honoree, including first-team recognition his senior season. He was also a two-time all-region award-winner and a four-year letterwinner.

He finished his Kenyon career ranked third in career points scored (112), third in career goals (42) and third in career assists (28).

KATY ZEANAH

New Orleans, LA / Metairie Park

Class of 2006 — Women’s Basketball

A three-time All-North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) first-team honoree, Katy Zeanah was a do-it-all teammate that sparked the Kenyon basketball program to a combined 63-42 record over four seasons. She helped guide Kenyon teams to a 2005 NCAC regular-season championship, as well as two NCAC Tournament final appearances.


Zeanah racked up 1,179 career points, a total that, at the time of her graduation, ranked fifth best in program history. In addition to scoring, Zeanah stuffed her career stat sheet with 703 rebounds, 84 blocked shots and a .511 shooting percentage. Those three totals still rank third all-time in program history. She also holds top-10 Kenyon career marks for field goals (480), free throws (204) and steals (181). 

In 2013, Zeanah was one of just 10 players to be named to the NCAC’s 30th Anniversary All-Decade Team.
