Ohio State goaltender Lynsey Wallace, a letterwinner for the Scarlet and Gray from 2018-21, is one of five student-athletes to receive and Anne and Woody Hayes Award.
The award, established in 1979, provides one or more varsity athletes with financial assistance for postgraduate studies. The recipients of this scholarship are student-athletes who have demonstrated academic achievement (3.00 grade-point average minimum) and leadership qualities.
Wallace also earned the Leann Grimes-Davidge Award. The Leann Grimes-Davidge Award, which is a tribute to Grimes-Davidge’s contributions to athletics at Ohio State, is given annually to a female athlete who reflects Grimes-Davidge’s outstanding qualities of athletic performance, scholarship, character, campus or community involvement and leadership.
Wallace graduated in May with his degree in animal sciences. On the ice, she was part of two teams that played in the NCAA Frozen Four (2018 and 2021) as well as the program’s first-ever WCHA Final Faceoff title in 2020. And just as impressive, she’s accomplished significant things off the ice, namely becoming a Battalion Commander as part of Ohio State’s Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.
From Seven Hills, Ohio, Wallace will continue her education at Ohio State next year. She’ll be attending Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian.
