Getting to Know Your Hornets: Emily Lindsay ‘15

Senior women’s basketball team captain Emily Lindsay ’15 came to K because it offered her the opportunity to play right away, and she has definitely taken advantage of that opportunity.

Lindsay is originally from Davison, Mich. where she played four years of varsity basketball as a shooting guard for Davison High School. She chose to bring her record-setting talents to K for the opportunity to play right away and for the high quality education offered here.

In the 2011-2012 season, Lindsay’s first year, she set the single season three pointer record with 53 three pointers made.  She was also second on the team in scoring during her first season on campus.

Lindsay continued her strong athletic performance for K last season when, as a junior, she broke the school’s career three pointer record. She also was a leader during K’s seven game win streak last season that left the team on the cusp of a playoff spot. This season, Lindsay hopes to lead the team back to the playoffs for the first time in over 10 years.

Off the court, Lindsay is just as successful. She will graduate this summer with a double major in Psychology and AnSo. She is also the current president of the Athletic Leadership Council (ALC) on campus.

For the ALC she helps set up charity events, participates in numerous community service events, and works with the local Special Olympics committee. She said one of her primary goals as President is to connect the student athletes on campus with the non-athlete students. She would like an even more tight knit supportive community on campus.

In the classroom, Lindsay loves her sports psychology class. “It’s a field I’m interested in and want to pursue after graduation. Plus the class is really fun,” she says. Lindsay plans to pursue a masters program in counseling services psychology following her graduation from K.

Despite all of the adult responsibilities Lindsay loves to embrace, she still has one thing she loves just as much as challenges and her teammates. Lindsay says, “I’m addicted to Kit Kats. I eat them all the time, during games and often at half time.”
