Megan Theiller ’18 Named MAAC Female Student-Athlete of the Year

Megan Theiller ’18 has been selected as the 2017-18 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Female Student-Athlete of the Year. Theiller concluded her Fairfield University Volleyball career this past fall, as a three-time co-captain of three consecutive MAAC Championship teams. A Phi Beta Kappa inductee, she graduated from the University in May with a degree in biology.

To be eligible for MAAC Student-Athlete of the Year consideration, a student-athlete must be an upperclassman with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 or higher who is also a key contributor to his or her team in athletic competition. Nominees were submitted by the MAAC’s 11 full-member institutions and voted upon by representatives from each athletic department.

“I am honored to receive this award that recognizes both academic and athletic success; I have always tried my best to balance academics with my commitment to my team. The University’s philosophy of the Magis – striving for excellence in all facets of life – was a principle that I tried to emulate,” said Theiller. “The personal relationships that I built with my teammates, coaches, athletics staff, and professors were integral to my success, and I am grateful to those people and the many others who helped me during my time at Fairfield.”
