Classroom

Michele Tremblay currently possesses a stellar 3.81 cumulative GPA while majoring in psychology and minoring in health studies. Named to Siena Athletics’ “4.0 Club” after achieving a perfect GPA during the Spring 2016 semester, she was inducted into both the Pi Gamma Mu (Social Science) and Psi Chi (Psychology) International Honor Societies last spring. Tremblay was tabbed an NSCAA Scholar All-East Region Second Team and CoSIDA Academic All-District I First Team selection following her junior season in which she was once again named to both the MAAC All-Academic Team and Academic Honor Roll. Tremblay was recently named the MAAC Female Student-Athlete of the Week on September 26.

A Siena College Presidential Scholar, Tremblay has been named to the Deans’ List four times and to the President’s List on two occasions. Upon graduation, she plans to pursue her doctorate in physical therapy and has already devoted numerous hours this past summer toward logging observation hours. She has also spent the past three years working as an administrative assistant for Evergreen Harvard Group.

Character

Tremblay was elected a team captain prior to the start of this season. Says Head Coach Steve Karbowski on Tremblay’s character and leadership qualities: “Michele is one of the most tireless and relentless workers on the field, and that effort carries over well beyond the field. She was selected as a captain heading into her senior year for her leadership abilities, as well as for her care and thoughtfulness of her teammates. Michele has a tremendous passion for the game and always represents her college with class and integrity. Her presence among the team each day and her lead-by-example attitude have created a strength and confidence about the team which has led to one of the best four-year periods in program history. She is a true student-athlete with her outstanding performance in the classroom and her first-team All-Conference recognition on the field. Michele is truly a coach’s dream.”

Community

Tremblay has been an active and engaged participant in numerous Siena Athletics “Saints in the Community” initiatives throughout her four years. Along with her teammates, she has cooked meals at the local Ronald McDonald House, volunteered on several occasions at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany, and participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.

After her uncle was struck and killed by a car while jogging last fall, she honored his memory by organizing an American Red Cross Blood Drive last spring and by creating the First Annual Thomas Ducharme Recognition at one of Siena’s matches this fall to bring awareness to sharing the road with runners. The event raised $2,000.

Competition

A preseason first-team All-MAAC selection, Tremblay was tabbed a 2016 first-team All-MAAC honoree after being named a two-time MAAC Player of the Week. She started all 19 matches at center midfield last season for a Siena team whose second place MAAC finish and seven conference victories both tied program records. Tremblay notched 15 points last season and ranked tied for third in the MAAC in game-winning goals (3) and tied for 10th in goals (6). She totaled 10 points while starting 21 matches during the Saints’ MAAC Championship season of 2015, which included a program single-match record four assists vs. Saint Peter’s earlier in the campaign. She entered her senior season having amassed 28 points on the strength of nine goals and 10 assists to go along with four game-winning goals over 59 career matches (54 starts).
