Jim Levins, Middlebury College
Jimmy Levins graduated from Middlebury College in the spring of 2011 with a major in biochemistry and a minor in Spanish. He was the recipient of the school's Hazeltine-Klevenow Memorial Trophy, given annually to the senior male who best combines ability in athletics and excellence in scholarship.
Levins was a four-year member of the golf team in the fall and spring, as well as the Division I nordic ski team during the winter months. He served as captain of both teams during his senior season.
Levins was a part of two NESCAC Championship golf teams in 2009 and 2011. The Panthers advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second and third time in school history during his time on the team.
In the spring of 2011, he entered NCAA play with a 75.9 average this season. His low round came on day one at the NCAA's, where he was tied for fifth among 205 golfers with a two-under-par 70. He also won the Williams Spring Opener with a 71, while firing a 72 during NESCAC match play this fall. The senior was a three-time All-NESCAC selection at Middlebury.
Levins had a solid senior season with the nordic ski team as well. He earned several top 20 finishes, including an 18th place performance in the 10K race at St. Lawrence. The Rutland, Vermont native competed at an elite level on the race courses, with former teammates competing for U.S. National and Olympic teams.
