After working hard in practice all week and studying game film as well as scouting reports, the only thing more rewarding for an athlete than winning on Thursday and Saturday is being awarded Player of the Week Honors on Monday. Senior forward Lindsey Lindstrom has been a member of Michigan Tech’s women’s basketball team for five years including her redshirt season in 2007-08. A key member in the team’s run to the Division II National Championship game just one year ago; Lindsey has been an important factor in the Huskies balanced scoring attack during her tenure as well as being the team’s premier defender.
In recognition of her efforts this last week Lindsey was named the GLIAC North Player of the Week, after helping lead the team to a perfect 2-0 record last week with wins over Ohio Dominican and Tiffin. For the week, Lindstrom averaged 12.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 2.0 assists per game while shooting 62.5 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from three-point range. In the win over Ohio Dominican, Lindstrom grabbed a team-high nine rebounds and also added four points and four assists. She then posted a career-high 21 points and added three rebounds and three assists against ODU.
Lindstrom’s hard work does not stop when she steps off of the hardwood. She is a Marketing major within the School of Business and Economics at Michigan Tech where she has maintained a 3.44 grade point average despite her commitments to the basketball team. Coordinator of Academic Services, Brad Wagner says, “Like many athletes at Michigan Tech, Lindsey shows tremendous dedication to achieving objectives. She knows how to get the job done and carries herself in a professional, mature fashion. As anyone who knows her can attest, she is very pleasant to be around.”
We wish the Michigan Tech Huskies all the best luck as they progress through their conference schedule and into the tournament season.
The United States Department of Defense will soon have a presence on Tech’s campus and it will look very much like student Robert Frankovich.
Under the new Student Training and Academic Recruitment (STAR) program, Michigan Tech student Robert Frankovich will be hired as a marketing co-op by the Department of Defense. The job includes marketing and promoting DOD career opportunities on campus. Frankovich, 21, plans to graduate from Tech in April of 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in business management.
Michigan Tech and the University of Puerto Rico are the first two universities to participate in the program said Career Center Director Jim Turnquist. Several students applied for the position and interviewed with a DOD representative. “He has the opportunity of a lifetime,” Turnquist said of Frankovich. “I think he’s still in a sense of oblivion.”
Patricia Bradshaw, deputy undersecretary of defense for civilian policy, attended a Wednesday press conference announcing the program and credited the Career Center as being the catalyst behind getting the program going.
