On the surface, this success story is remarkably similar to the sports feature that ran in our 2014 winter issue. Just as they had done in 2013, the Shippensburg University field hockey team navigated a gamut of highs and lows during its 2016 season, ending with its highest honor—a national championship. This win however, carried with it unparalleled emotions after tragedy marked the start of the season.
Lindsey Knupp ’04 loved sports and played sports, but she never expected to be working in sports after graduating from Shippensburg University. Fortunately, whether playing or working on the field, she excelled. In fact, Knupp is so good at what she does in her roll as vice president of marketing and entertainment for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs that she earned the Rawlings Woman Executive of the Year in December 2015.
