Meisenberg Named Jostens' Finalist

LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall senior captain Sarah Meisenberg has been named one of 10 finalists for the Jostens Trophy, college basketball’s most prestigious individual honors.

The Jostens Trophy is a national award created by the Rotary Club of Salem, Va., to honor the most outstanding men’s and women’s Division III basketball players of the year. Recipients must exhibit excellence in basketball, academics and community service. The trophy models the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” by recognizing those who truly fit the ideal of the well-rounded Division III student-athlete.

The pool of 10 men and 10 women finalists will be forwarded to the 35-person national selection committee to complete the process of choosing the two Jostens Trophy winners. The recipients will be announced on Thursday, March 19th in conjunction with the Division III Men's Championship Tournament hosted in Salem, Va., on March 20-21.

Meisenberg, a two-sport All-American, is averaging 14.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. She has started all 25 games and needs three more points to reach 1,500 for her career.

Meisenberg is double majoring in Biology and Public Policies, and has been named a Presidential Scholar the last three years, while being named to the Dean’s List on several occasions. She is a member of the executive board for the Women’s Center and apart of the task force for economic status of women in Lancaster County. Meisenberg is instrumental with the College Connections Program and participates in the Athletic Community Service Project “TeamWork”. She also volunteers at the Bethesda men’s shelter.
