Harvard's Lackner Recognized for Leadership Off the Court

Christiana Lackner was a co-captian of Harvard's Ivy League champion women's basketball team this season, but that is not consider her most noteable accomplishment.

Lackner was recognized earlier this school year by the Margaret Fitzgerald Grogan Petersmeyer Foundation "for being a natural leader, for being well-rounded, for finding academic success, and for possessing a palpable love of life."

At one point, Lackner said, "My basketball coaches couldn’t understand why I was dancing, and my ballet teacher definitely couldn’t understand why I wanted to play basketball.”

Click here to read the story on Harvard's official athletics website, "Women's Basketball's Lackner Receives Fitzie Outstanding Young Women Award," and see what Christiana is considering doing with the award money after she graduates.

Thanks to Double-A Zone for the tip.
