Lindsay found her love for volleyball at the early age of 12. She attended Austin High School and helped the Maroons win a State Championship in 1992 (as a sophomore). Rosenthal’s high level of play led to numerous awards including earning Texas All-State team and Under Armour High School All-American honors. She graduated from AHS in 1995 and continued her volleyball career collegiately earning a full, four-year scholarship to the University of Notre Dame.
Rosenthal was one of the most versatile and consistent players in Irish volleyball history. She appears in the Notre Dame career record books in 11 categories and played in all but one of the team’s 133 matches during her four-year career. As a senior in 1998, Rosenthal captained the team to its seventh consecutive NCAA tournament appearance and a fourth straight BIG EAST championship, earning first team all-district and all-BIG EAST conference honors. She also was named a first team GTE/CoSIDA academic all-district honoree and received team honors as the National Monogram MVP and Knute Rockne Scholar-Athlete.
