Jeff Grothouse (near left), Stacy (Elwer) Fairchild (2nd from right) and Dan Grothouse (right) attended the induction of Shannon Smith Lewandowski into the Northern Kentucky University Hall of Fame. Lewandowski and Fairchild were teammates for the Grothouses at St. John’s from 1991-95. Lewandowski scored 1,326 career points from 1995-99 for the NKU women’s basketball team and shot 56.4 percent from the field, which is No. 2 in school history. As a senior, she averaged 16.5 points per game and earned All-Great Lakes Valley Conference honors as NKU captured the GLVC regular-season and tournament titles. Smith later helped the Norse capture the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region championship and earn a berth to the Elite Eight, where NKU knocked off Indiana (Pa.) before falling to Arkansas Tech in the national semifinals. A tremendous student, Smith was named NKU’s Margery Rouse Athlete of Distinction her senior year. She also earned the GLVC Richard F. Scharf Paragon Award winner after her senior year and was selected as an NCAA postgraduate scholarship recipient. (Photo submitted)
