Heather Putnam-Graham '76
Title: Class of 1992

Heather Putnam-Graham, your talent, drive and determination have distinguished you as one of the most versatile athletes to ever wear a Worcester State uniform.

You earned 12 varsity letters while playing field hockey, basketball, softball and lacrosse and your leadership qualities were evident as you were a captain in field hockey, basketball and lacrosse.

You were one of the early pioneers of the women's sports program at Worcester State College. You were a key member of teams that won four straight Massachusetts State College Conference (MASCAC) in field hockey and basketball. You scored 18 goals in field hockey but set up your teammates for many others and you scored 503 points in basketball and had an unstoppable "hook shot".

You were selected to represent New England in the 1st National Woman's Lacrosse Championships held by the United States Women's Lacrosse Association in 1975. This was after participating in the sport for only two years which was an outstanding accomplishment.

You were honored for your undergraduate achievements by selection to the Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.

You went on to serve as an assistant basketball coach at Worcester State College in 1977.

Heather Putnam-Graham, it is with great pride that we induct you into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame.
