COLLEGE REPORT: Boeglin has plenty of ISU memories, but not all are related to basketball

TERRE HAUTE — Melanie Boeglin, an All-American who played on the women’s basketball team at Indiana State from 2002-2006, will be inducted into the 21st class of the Indiana State University Athletics Hall of Fame on Thursday.

She will be joined by men’s basketball greats Nate Green, Michael Menser and Matt Renn when the class is inducted during ceremonies at the Sycamore Banquet Center in the Hulman Memorial Student Union. A social hour will begin at 6 p.m. with the dinner at 6:30 and the program beginning at 7:15.

“Being inducted into the ISU Hall of Fame is a truly humbling honor,” Boeglin said. “I have been lucky enough to achieve a lot of things and win some very special awards during my career at Indiana State, but this honor trumps them all. There are so many phenomenal athletes and people that have made Indiana State athletics what it is today, and to even be mentioned amongst those individuals is a great feeling.”

Boeglin was a dominant player for Indiana State from 2002 to 2006 and received numerous national and Missouri Valley Conference honors during her playing career. She was the first athlete in the history of the MVC to win the Jackie Stiles Player of the Year award and the Prairie Farms Women’s Basketball Scholar Athlete of the Year award in the same season, both coming in 2006.

She was also named to several All-American teams in 2006 including honorable mention on the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association/Kodak All-American Team, honorable mention on the Associated Press All-American Team, and third team on The Sporting News All-American Team. She was also named a First Team Academic All-American by ESPN the Magazine and the College Sports Information Directors of America.

 “It is very hard to pinpoint what my favorite memories are from my career,” Boeglin said. “No doubt the best part of my entire experience would be the time I spent with my teammates, both on and off the court.”

Boeglin said that when her teammates get together for alumni events they rarely talk about the wins or losses but reflect on the silly things that happened in the locker room, on the bus, at the hotel or back in the dorms.

“Those are the memories that I will never forget and those are the people that will forever be a huge part of who I am today,” Boeglin said.

During her Sycamore career, Indiana State posted an 88-36 record, won or finished second in the MVC regular season three times, and participated in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament three times.

Her favorite memory on the court came on Senior Night when the Sycamores played in front of 6,900 fans.

“I remember that it was not a close game by any means but it was the last time we got to play on the Hulman Center court during the regular season. To be able to share that with the other four members of my class was so much fun. The emotions of that night were overwhelming. I was so appreciative to have had the collegiate experience that I had but so sad to see it come to an end.”
