Megan was an exceptionally talented two-sport athlete during her four years at Saint Michael’s.  She was one of the greatest players in women’s lacrosse history at the College.  A four-year starter and two-time team captain and Most Valuable Player, she graduated as one of the program’s all-time scoring leaders, and was among the team’s leading scorers each season.  As a senior, she became the first and only Purple Knight to ever earn Brine/IWLCA Division II First Team All-America honors, and was one of only three women from the New England region invited to participate in tryouts for the U.S. National Team.  Her leadership abilities were truly outstanding, as she led the lacrosse team to four consecutive winning seasons, and a win percentage of .600, despite playing for three different head coaches during that span.  She was also a three-year starter for the volleyball team at middle hitter, and served as the team’s captain in her senior year.  Megan played a critical role in the emergence of the program as a quality contender in the Northeast-10 Conference.  Purple Knights Volleyball enjoyed one of its most successful spans during her playing career, collecting 31 match victories, and posting the first back-to-back double-digit win seasons in the program’s history.  She is the first volleyball player to be enshrined in the Saint Michael’s Hall of Fame.
