Beaver Dam High School graduate Cassidy Trotter continues to excel both on and off the court at Michigan Tech. The junior was named 2nd team All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference women’s basketball team for the 2nd year in a row after averaging 12.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game this past season. Trotter tied for the league lead in steal at 2.8 per contest and she was also 4th in the conference in free throw shooting at 85.1%. The 2017 BDHS alum was also named 2nd team all-conference and an All-Defensive Team player after the 2018-19 season.
Despite being decimated by injuries, Michigan Tech finished the year at 11-17 overall and 9-11 in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference North Division. The Huskies fell in the quarterfinals of the GLIAC Conference Tournament to #2 seed Grand Valley State.
Trotter was recently named one of six female recipients of the 2020 Winter GLIAC Commissioner’s Award. The honor is given annually by the GLIAC to six male and six female student-athletes that excel academically and athletically. Trotter says that she is on pace to graduate in the Spring of 2021. After graduating next year, she plans on taking a year off then will head to medical school and study to be an OB-GYN.
Trotter was a member of the 2016-17 Beaver Dam High School girls basketball team that captured the WIAA Division Two state basketball championship at the Resch Center in Green Bay. She says that the biggest thing she took from her time in the BDHS basketball program was the lifelong relationships she built with her teammates and coaches.
