Michael Loginoff (San Mateo, Calif.) was an instrumental player on the Colby College men's basketball team with the ability to fluctuate into any role required of him and was the same way off the court.
Loginoff was the embodiment of Colby's athletic and academic missions, gaining recognition in both areas.
"Michael's focus and determination is something he carries in all phases of his life" said Damien Strahorn, Colby's men's basketball head coach. "His ability to fully commit to whatever task he was working on is reflected in the excellence he achieved in all areas of campus."
In his athletic career, Loginoff was one of the toughest defenders on the team. He was the team's Most Improved Player Award winner in his first year and earned the Unsung Hero Award as a junior.
In an effort to make the most of his Colby experience, he was the student body president for the 2015-26 academic year and was the vice president the year prior. He was a student representative on the Colby Board of Trustees, the student chair for the residential experience planning group, and was the class of 2016 president from 2012 to 2014.
Loginoff was a double major in history and Russian language & culture, earning Colby's Philip W. Tirabass Memorial Award for a junior man who has willingly assisted his classmates, promoted the best interests of the College, and maintained superior academic standing. He also earned the Russian Program Award during the 2016 Colby student awards ceremony.
Loginoff, a three-time NESCAC All-Academic selection, was awarded the Donald P. Lake Award at the Senior Athletics Awards Presentation for his athletic ability, leadership, and academic accomplishments.
