Middlebury College’s Greer nominated for national award

MIDDLEBURY — Recent Middlebury College graduate and North Hampton, N.H., resident Lauren Greer has been named one of six NESCAC Women of the Year nominees. A committee of conference administrators will select the NESCAC’s representative for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award, which honors outstanding athletic, academic and community achievements.
The NCAA award honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership. The award has been given annually since 1991. The 2013 NCAA Woman of the Year will be announced on Oct. 20 in Indianapolis.
Greer was a four-year member of the Panther field hockey and ice hockey teams. She served as a team captain for both squads while mentoring students on and off campus. Greer graduated with a dual degree in Film and Media and in English and American Literature, while earning the title of All-Academic from numerous organizations.
She was named NESCAC All-Academic six times between her two sports and was honored on the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Academic Squad all four years. A three-time Dean’s List member and four-time College Scholar at Middlebury, Greer was one of 58 winter student-athletes across all Divisions awarded an NCAA postgraduate scholarship.
The three-time All-American and two-time NESCAC Field Hockey Player of the Year topped all of her school and conference single-season records from her junior season and led the NCAA Division III in goals per game and points per game in 2012.
A senior captain in both sports, Greer was honored with the Peter Kohn Award in field hockey for career contribution and leadership.
Greer finished as the D-III all-time leading scorer in points per game and was named the NFHCA D-III National Field Hockey Player of the Year. Greer was also a pivotal member of the Panther ice hockey squad for four years, helping Middlebury to the NCAA championship game in 2013 while being selected to the NESCAC Second Team.
Greer also found time to mentor year-round. On campus, she worked as a writing tutor and off campus Greer spent four years working with third-grade students through the Ripton Elementary School mentor program. During her final year on campus, Greer assisted the Trustee Committee as a student body representative.
