Shoreham’s Trudel honored by her alma mater

BOSTON — Shoreham native and former Middlebury Union High School athletic standout Alyssa Trudel has been chosen as one of Boston University’s latest class of inductees for its Athletic Hall of Fame, as recently announced by Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics Mike Lynch.
Trudel, a 2005 BU graduate and former America East women’s lacrosse player of the year, and five other former Terrier standouts will be officially introduced on May 31 as the 50th class of BU hall inductees.
A two-time All-America midfielder and former Vermont Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association (now Vermont Sports Media Association) Athlete of the Year, Trudel helped guide the Terriers to their first NCAA quarterfinal appearance and three America East championships.
The four-time all-conference honoree is one of three players in program history to earn All-America First Team honors and is one of five Terriers to earn multiple All-America accolades during her career.
Trudel finished her career with 238 points (143 goals, 95 assists), which ranks fifth all-time in program history. She also ranks in the top five all-time in caused turnovers (99), draw controls (142) and ground balls (152), while her 86 points (44 goals, 42 assists) during her sophomore season is the third most all-time in a single season.
During her senior season, she led the Terriers to a perfect 6-0 mark in conference play and an 18-2 overall record, which is tied for the most wins in school history. Trudel, a two-time captain, was named the 2003 America East Player of the Year as a sophomore and led BU to its first-ever NCAA tournament victory two years later with a 12-6 win over Colgate in the first round.
At MUHS, Trudel was a member of four state championship girls’ lacrosse teams, and also played basketball and soccer.
BU women’s lacrosse coach Liz Robertshaw in an email called it an “extreme honor and privilege” to announce to Terrier lacrosse alumni and parents that Trudel had been chosen.
“Alyssa was a true leader on the field both with her play and with her passion, and that legacy lives on today in our current leaders,” Robertson wrote.
