Meg Christman, Connecticut College
Meg Christman anchored the front line for the highly successful Camel volleyball program as a middle blocker.
The Camels advanced to the semifinals of the NESCAC Championship in three of her four years of play, winning 70% of their matches (80-35) along the way. Christman tallied 842 Kills, 320 Blocks and 135 digs in her prolific playing career for Connecticut College Camels.
As a co-captain, Christman led the team to a 22-6 record and a NESCAC mark of 8-2. She registered a league leading .327 hitting percentage in her senior season for the Camels.
In her final home match in front of a packed crowd at Luce Field House, Christman rallied the Camels from two games down to defeat Wesleyan University, recording 10 kills and five blocks in the triumph.
A clutch player who thrived under pressure, Christman saved some of her best performances for the post-season and registered 66 blocks with 25 kills in eight playoff matches for the Camels.
"Meg's intensity and competitive drive raised the level of play of everyone on the court," Head Coach Josh Edmed said. "We have been fortunate to have a player of her caliber."
During commencement weekend, Christman was honored with Anita L. DeFrantz '74 Award. It is given annually to the male and female members of the graduating class whose athletic ability, leadership and sportsmanship best exemplify the qualities of Olympic Medalist Anita L. DeFrantz '74.
A Dean's High Honors Student, Christman received her degree in environmental science.
