Bulldog senior guard/forward Lindsey Pettit was selected as this issue’s “Athlete of the Week” fol­low­ing an out­stand­ing per­for­mance against Hillsdale College (Feb. 22). In FSU’s final regular-season home game, Pettit led the Bulldogs with 13 points as FSU defeated Hillsdale 61–51 to earn the GLIAC vic­tory. The con­test marked Pettit’s first start of the sea­son as she helped the Bulldogs to the “Senior Night” win. Following Wednesday’s win over the Chargers as well as Saturday’s 46–44 vic­tory over Grand Valley State University, FSU fin­ished regular-season play with a 20–5 over­all mark and a 17–2 con­fer­ence record.

This sea­son Pettit has appeared in 25 games for the Bulldogs. She is cur­rently aver­ag­ing 4.2 points per game and has scored a total of 105 points this campaign.

Come watch Pettit and the rest of the FSU women’s bas­ket­ball team Feb. 29 as the Bulldogs host the University of Findlay in the GLIAC Tournament Quarterfinals. Tipoff is sched­uled for 7:30 p.m. inside Jim Wink Arena.
