Padua Hockey standout Lynsey Wallace ’17 made Ohio State University’s Women’s Hockey team in the fall. Playing for a Division I program has been a dream come true for Wallace, who has been dressing as a backup goaltender this season. Her unprecedented road to becoming a Buckeye was recently highlighted by Ohio Hockey Digest.

Her schedule has been hectic. She spends up to five hours a day with her team – attending on-ice practice, goalie practice, weightlifting, film sessions, team meals and other events, in addition to juggling her responsibilities as a student and an ROTC cadet. Balancing school and sports is nothing new for Wallace. She was a student in Padua’s rigorous four-year MedTrack program, which prepares students for careers in science and healthcare.

Wallace was the first female in school history to make Padua’s Varsity Hockey team roster. During her junior year, she won the title of All-Great Lakes Hockey League goalie, and became the first Bruin ever to win a GLHL award. Senior year, she earned All-League honors and the GLHL Sportsmanship Award.

The entire Padua community is so proud of Lynsey and all of her outstanding accomplishments as both a Bruin and a Buckeye.
