They say college is a blur full of memories that last a lifetime. Shippensburg University senior Megan Lundy sprinted her way through campus while maintaining a 4.0 cumulative GPA and winning two PSAC Top 10 awards.
On Wednesday, Lundy was nominated for the 2015-2016 PSAC Winter Top 10 award for women’s indoor track and field. This is just one of the awards she has earned this season.
“I give a lot of credit to my teammates for helping me to be successful. The Shippensburg track and field team is such a strong program and my teammates push me every day to improve and better myself as a student athlete,” Lundy said.
Lundy received her first PSAC Top 10 nomination in the spring of 2015. In addition to winning two awards, Lundy earned nine PSAC titles and placed eighth in the Division II 400-meter sprint.
At the conference meet back in February, Lundy finished in third place for the 400-meter sprint. Lundy also participated in the 4x400-meter relay, where she helped anchor the SU team for a win.
As the track season is wrapping up, Lundy is preparing to compete for one final time before graduating from SU with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. She has enjoyed her college career at SU.
“I have loved my experience as a collegiate student athlete and I will miss participating in track and field. A huge thank you to the teammates and coaches who have made my time in the program so unforgettable,” Lundy said.
Looking back over this past season, Lundy says her most memorable moment was when SU was battling with Slippery Rock University. Since the 4x400 meter relay was the last event of the meet, Lundy was able to help SU grasp the win.
In order to qualify for the PSAC Top 10 award, athletes must have at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA and athletic credentials.
Shippensburg has had more PSAC Top 10 award winners than any other school in the conference since the award’s creation in 1997.
