Yale junior Sada Jacobson, who is the top-ranked sabre fencer in the world, has been named the recipient of the 2005 Marty Glickman Outstanding Jewish Scholastic Athlete of the Year Award by the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. This is the second time that Jacobson has earned such a distinction, making her the first person ever to have been a 2-time winner.
Jacobson, who earned a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, will be presented with the award at the 13th Annual Jewish Sports Hall of Fame Inductions at the Suffolk Y JCC on Commack, NY on April 3. The USMA's Boyd Melson earned the award as well this year.
Twelve athletes will be inducted into the Hall of Fame that day, including the MLB's Shawn Green and former Dartmouth football player and Glickman award winner Jay Fielder.
Jacobson's team will be at home in Payne Whitney Gym Saturday to face Ivy opponent Penn at 11:00 AM.
