Ranquist earns All-NAC second-team honorsMedomak Valley standout closes in on 1,000 points
Farmington — Former Medomak Valley High School athletic standout Lindsay Ranquist was a force to be reckoned with during her days toiling for the Panthers. Be it on the basketball court or the softball field, Ranquist's play always proved paramount to her team's success.
Little has changed, it seems, for Ranquist, as far as basketball is concerned, as she was one of the top players for the University of Maine at Farmington women's basketball team during the winter.
Ranquist, an Owls Head native, was named to the All-North Atlantic Conference second-team, along with Chandler Guerrette (Husson University), Ashley Fruzetti (Colby-Sawyer), Leah Jackson (Maine Maritime Academy) and Meghan O'Dullivan (Castleton).
Ranquist started all 26 games and averaged 13 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Beavers, along with compiling 43 assists and 27 steals. She led the NAC shooting 41 percent from 3-point range and netted 41 treys on the season.
She had two double-doubles on the season and also had a season-high 22 points Jan. 7 at Thomas College of Waterville.
Ranquist has 774 career points and needs 226 to score 1,000 for her collegiate career. If she hits the milestone, she will be the 15th UMF women's player to tally 1,000 points.
UMF finished the year 9-17 and earned the No. 6 seed in the NAC tournament.
Ranquist graduated from MVHS in 2011 and attended Rockland District High School her freshman year.
