Lindsay Michel, Connecticut College

One of the top students to have ever competed in the Camel basketball program, Lindsay Michel has earned high marks for her academic and athletic excellence. Michel was also named a Winthrop Scholar, Connecticut College’s highest academic honor awarded to members of the senior class who demonstrate exceptional scholarship, personal fitness and promise. In the Spring of 2008, she was awarded the Anthony Francis Nelson Memorial Prize for her academic achievement in the field of environmental studies.

A team tri-captain for the Camels, Michel finished third in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) with 2.48 steals per game, and was sixth in assists with 3.52 helpers per contest. Michel’s leadership and spirited play at both ends of the floor played an instrumental role in the program’s success. The Camels finished with their best record in 11 years.

Michel was named First Team All-District in the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Women’s Basketball Program and was honored as the female recipient of the Brown/Brooks Award at Connecticut College. The award is given to the outstanding male and female student-athletes who best represent the graduating class in scholarship, leadership, and sportsmanship.
