Sigi Koizar

Sigrid Koizar is one of the most humble, hard working, kind and generous people I have known. Sigi excels in everything she does because of her tireless work ethic. No mater the circumstances, she makes sure to get the work done. She is looked up to by her teammates, classmates and professors because of her character. People LOVE “Sigi” in Maine. Her graciousness with others is second to none and she always has time for an autograph or a picture - she never says no. She volunteers to help her teammates with their classes - even if it means she needs to stay up later for her own studies. She is selfless beyond compare. Sigi is the person I can always count on. She is responsible for not only herself, but also takes great pride and holding others accountable as well.


Throughout her career, Koizar has participated in numerous children’s clinics and volunteered her time during several events including serving holiday meals to the less fortunate, wrapping presents for charity, visiting local schools and reading to children.


Koizar is a two-time America East First Team selection and a member of the 2016 America East All-Tournament Team. She has become the 20th Black Bear to score 1,000 points, just the eighth to do so in three seasons. She is the UMaine single-season record holder for 3-point field goals made (85) and has, so far, tallied 20-plus points in 19 games, 30-plus in three. As of nomination time, Koizar was ranked in the top 10 in nine different America East categories and ninth nationally in 3-point percentage (43.4).
