Lauren Thomas: Maize & Blue Student Athlete of the Week

mott blog - satw lauren thomas mastheadOn most Thursday nights, the larger-than-life men and women of Michigan Athletics stop by to share jokes, smiles, friendship and a little cheer with children at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

We know our “Little Victors” look up to these students, and that’s why we’re pleased to present the Maize & Blue Student Athlete of the Week.  Each week, we’ll be shining a spotlight on one athlete to give our Little Victors and their families a closer look at some of the Conquering Heroes who dominate on the field, in the arena and in our hearts.

Congratulations to this week’s featured student athlete:
