It’s been a big week for Lindsey Goldsberry Sweeney.

The former basketball star was inducted into the Chaminade Julienne Athletics Hall of Fame last Friday, and this week she is being immortalized in a more 2017 kind of way: With a bobblehead doll from her college alma mater.

Bowling Green is hosting Lindsey Goldsberry Sweeney Bobblehead Day on Wednesday when the Falcons play host to Western Michigan.

While flattered, she seemed to find it all a little overwhelming.

“I’ve always been a behind the scenes person, so it’s all very humbling to me,” she said.

After helping CJ to state championships in 2003 and ‘05, she became the all-time winningest basketball player in Mid-American Conference history while suiting up at BG.

The Falcons were 114-20 in her four years and made two NCAA tournament appearances.

They made the Sweet 16 her sophomore year.

Her CJ teams were 99-7, and she set school records for steals, assists and charges taken in a single season.
