Oct 15, 2014
During Homecoming 2014, North Central College will induct Amanda Orsburn ’02 into the Athletic Hall of Fame on Oct. 18.
Orsburn has one of the most decorated careers in the history of the North Central College women’s basketball and soccer programs. Orsburn cracked the women’s basketball starting lineup midway through her freshman season before emerging as one of the top players in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW). Her accomplishments include several All-CCIW First Team and Honorable Mention All-America honors. She also was named the CCIW’s Player of the Year following her senior season, making her one of only two players in the North Central program to be honored. As the women’s basketball all-time leader in free throws made and attempted and the program’s third all-time leading scorer, Orsburn also ranks in North Central’s career top 10 in eight other categories.
Orsburn’s success continued onto the soccer field in serving as the Cardinals’ goalkeeper, earning her the current North Central record for saves in a season (207).
