WESTMINSTER, Md. – Jennifer Piccolomini of Leesburg, Va., is a recipient of the Green Terror Sports Hall of Fame award from McDaniel College. She is a 2003 alumna of the college.
Presented annually during McDaniel’s Homecoming, the Green Terror Sports Hall of Fame award is presented to a graduate and former athlete who has performed outstandingly as an undergraduate athlete and who has contributed to society since leaving the college.
Piccolomini graduated from McDaniel with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and physical education and earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from George Mason University.
As a guard for the Green Terror women’s basketball team, she earned All-Centennial Conference honors in each of her four years. For two seasons, she served as team captain. The team won its first-ever Centennial Conference crown and NCAA playoff berth in 2002, and Piccolomini was selected the team’s most valuable player. She repeated that honor in 2003 and was named McDaniel’s outstanding female athlete of the year by the Women’s Athletic Alumnae.
She is McDaniel’s all-time leader in three-point field goals made and attempted for the women’s team and fourth in scoring. She is also among the leaders in minutes played, rebounds, steals, field goals and free throws.
She is currently assistant principal at Park View High School in Sterling, Va. In 2016, she was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Award by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce and Meritorious Service Award by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
