Lindsay McNall ended her St. Michael’s College swimming career in style.

A month after becoming the first Purple Knight swimmer to ever qualify for the NCAA championships, McNall earned another program first: the Colchester native was named the Northeast-10 Conference Women’s Swimmer of the Year.

It’s the finishing touch to a historic senior season, during which McNall landed three-all conference finishes at the NE10 Championships, secured a team-high 27 wins en route to an remarkable 102 career wins and etched her name on her eighth school record.

At the national meet, she also earned the first Collegiate Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) All-America finish by a Saint Michael’s swimmer or diver and last week, became the first NE10 Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award winner in program annals.

McNall was also a five-time NE10 All-Conference finisher, three-time NE10 champion and three-time New England Intercollegiate Swimming & Diving Association (NEISDA) champion during her career. And thanks to her work in both the pool and the classroom, she was two-time NE10 Academic All-Conference and 2014 CSCAA Individual Scholar All-America.
