Stand Up and Be Seen!
Western student athletes strive each year to set the bar high for excellence — but few in recent WCSU sports intercollegiate competition have matched the accomplishments of 2011 graduate Melissa Teel. Teel capped a memorable career as center of the women’s basketball team by leading the Colonials for the second consecutive year to the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament, closing the 2010-11 season with a 24-4 record. The 2011 WCSU Female Athlete of the Year became the first women’s basketball player in Colonials history to post more than 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in her career. Her personal achievements included her selection as a Women’s Basketball Coaches Association/State Farm Division III All-American, one of numerous league, regional and national all-star team honors received during her senior year.
