Bullets lax star Lindsay Menton ’13 wins NCAA postgrad scholarship

Gettysburg grad recognized for academic and athletic excellence

Even after her graduation from Gettysburg College this May, the accolades just keep rolling in for former Bullets lacrosse star Lindsay Menton ’13.

Menton was recently named the winner of a prestigious NCAA postgraduate scholarship. She received one of only 29 scholarships available to female student-athletes from the recent spring season. The NCAA awards up to 174 postgraduate scholarships annually, 87 for men and 87 for women. 

The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically and who are in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition. The one-time, non-renewable grants of $7,500 each are awarded for fall, winter, and spring sports. 
 
Menton is the 10th Bullet to earn a postgrad scholarship and the first since men's lacrosse standout Timothy Kurpis '10. She is also the first Gettysburg women's lacrosse player to receive the award.
 
Menton was a major contributor during her four seasons with the lacrosse program, appearing in 83 contests with 67 starts. She was a versatile player on both sides of the field, logging 25 goals, 15 assists, 103 ground balls, 42 draw controls, and 48 caused turnovers.
