From the UMaine article:
“Ridley, a senior and three-year captain from Ottawa, Ontario, is a nursing major with a 3.994 GPA, earning an impressive 43 A’s and one A- over her time at the University of Maine. A seven-time Dean’s List member and three-time Presidential Scholar, Ridley earned four selections to the America East Commissioner’s Honor Roll and a pair of America East All-Academic team marks. She is a two-time member of Team Maine, representing the highest GPA on her team. In 2017, Ridley was honored by the UMaine College of Natural Sciences, Forestry and Agriculture with its highest-ranking junior award, one of only four students to receive the accolade that year. A two-time America East All-Conference second team selection, Ridley also earned a pair of selections to the America East All-Championship team and a spot on the league’s All-Rookie squad. Ridley started 60 of her 61 games she appeared in and led the team in minutes played in both her junior and senior seasons. The four-year letter winner has volunteered for the Healthy High 5K and the “Be The Match” Bone Marrow Drive while also offering her free time at the Ronald McDonald House. The Greater Bangor Multiple Sclerosis Chapter honored Ridley with its Shining Stars award for her work with the “Walk for MS” initiative.”
