A Tribute to Lindsay Morehouse '00

Lindsay Morehouse><br clear=Lindsay Morehouse '00

Lindsay Morehouse '00 was a standout student, athlete, and member of the Williams community. An analyst for Keefe, Bruyette & Woods in New York City, Lindsay was one of three Williams alumni/ae who died during the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

Lindsay's upbeat personality, indomitable spirit, and willingness to befriend, engage, and support those around her earned her the respect, friendship and admiration of all who knew her in the Williams community. The contributions of this remarkable young woman to the college were many and far-reaching, and nowhere felt more deeply than in the Williams women's tennis team.

Lindsay's on court achievements as a member of the Eph squad were many. She started on the team all four years, led the Ephwomen to four straight NCAA tournaments (including a second place finish in 1999), was a 1998-99 All-American, and was team captain her senior year. Even more remarkable, however, was the standard she set for herself and her teammates as members of the Williams team. On court, she worked as hard as anyone on the team to learn and improve. Her competitive comportment was that of a true Williams champion ... fair, gracious, and composed in both victory and defeat.

Off the court, she set the tone for a close-knit team with her genuine interest in getting to know, befriend, and support every one of her teammates. She somehow made everyone feel like she was their friend no matter how much (or little) she had in common with them. Lindsay devoted everything she had to making sure that the team experience was as positive as possible for every single team member. Her teammates' respect for her was immeasurable and the current team owes much of its success to the legacy of her exceptional leadership.

Tennis was one of the many ways Lindsay touched lives before during, and after her time at Williams. Our community was incredibly lucky to count her among its members, and we continue to come together to celebrate her legacy. A tree was planted in Lindsay's memory adjacent the tennis courts during Homecoming of 2001, a small service has been held on each anniversary of her death, a memorial tennis round robin was played in her honor in May of 2002, and a memorial will be completed on the southern entrance to the courts and was dedicated on September 2, 2004.
