This is the second in a series of articles on the inductees into the C.A.S.H. Sports Hall of Fame. The banquet is October 18th at the Coatesville Country Club. Tickets are available at the Coatesville Flower Shop.The term student athlete was created for people like Lindsay Fraschilla. In addition to her outstanding swimming career, she graduated 13th in a class of 465 at Coatesville High. Continuing her athletic and academic success at Penn State, Lindsay was named to the Academic All Big Ten swim team.
While at C.A.S.H., she was named Daily Local News swimmer of the year for three consecutive seasons. Lindsay was a YMCA State Champion and National finalist in the breast stroke.
In 9th grade, she won District medals in the 100 freestyle and 100 breast stroke and was part of the first girls' relay to qualify for states.
As a sophomore, Lindsay was District Champion in the 100 freestyle and qualified for the states in the 100 breast stroke as well.
In her junior year, she qualified at the District Meet for three events at the state level: the 100 free, 100 breast stroke and the medley relay. Lindsay repeated this success as a senior, qualifying for all three events at the State Meet.
She ended her high school career with eleven District medals and five at the state level. Lindsay owned most of the pool and team records while at C.A.S.H. She still holds the school record in the 100 breast stroke.
While at Penn State, Lindsay swam for four years, made the All Big Ten squad and was on the first Nittany Lion team to win the Big Ten Championship. Upon graduation, she held the 5 all-time top times at Penn State in the 100 and 200 breast strokes.
Lindsay currently resides in East Fallowfield Township and is employed as a computer consultant with Accenture, based in Philadelphia.
I was privileged to have Lindsay as a student and I can verify her abilities as a scholar, athlete and person. The C.A.S.H. Sports Hall of Fame welcomes this eminently qualified individual.
