Gena LindsayIn the early 2000s, a four-time state tennis qualifier from Central High School in St. Joseph made the short trip north to become a Bearcat. Gena Lindsay compiled a career that was full of both team and individual accolades while at Northwest, leading the women’s tennis team to four straight NCAA Regional appearances and two MIAA titles.
While aiding in their championship efforts, Lindsay racked up an impressive collection of individual accomplishments as well. Three times during her career she was named All-MIAA in singles play and was recognized as the MIAA Most Valuable Player in both 2005 and 2006. She is second all-time at Northwest in singles wins, third all-time in single season victories, and fourth all-time in career doubles wins. In 2005 and 2006, she was also awarded the MIAA Sportsmanship Award for her continual commitment to playing the game the right way. In addition, she was a two-time finalist for the Ken B. Jones Award for the MIAA’s top female student-athlete.
Today, Gena is currently living in Kansas City.
