Her Big Blue records include most points in a game (47), most points in a season (679) and best career scoring average (20.4). She is also Millikin’s all-time leading scorer for women’s basketball, with 2,017 points.

During her freshman year, the Big Blue won the NCAA Division III National Women’s Basketball championship, and Douglass was named to the All-Final Four team. As a junior, Douglass led all NCAA women’s divisions in scoring and led Division III in field goal percentage. As a senior, she led Division III in scoring.

Douglass received the Academic All-American of the Year award for Divisions II and III, and was selected for the Academic All-American first team by ESPN The Magazine in 2008. During her sophomore, junior and senior years, she was named to All-CCIW first teams and was also named CCIW Most Outstanding Player in her junior and senior years. A 2008 Lindsay Medallion recipient, Douglass was MVP of women’s basketball three years running.

After graduating cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, Douglass began her career in the intensive care unit of Decatur Memorial Hospital and is now a registered nurse in the emergency department at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downer’s Grove, Ill.

She and her husband, Chris Douglass ’07, have a one-year-old daughter, Harper Rose. Top

Paul Yemm ’06 of Ballwin, Mo., graduated from Millikin with a degree in chemistry and an exceptional swimming record. Yemm holds the Millikin record in the 200 meter butterfly with a time of 1:52.72 and the records for the 200 and 400 medley relays, along with teammates Rudolph Oates, Tom Sur, and Lukas Towry.

In each of his four years as a Big Blue swimmer, Yemm was CCIW champion in the 200 butterfly and was also the 100 butterfly champion in 2003. He was named the CCIW meet's Most Outstanding Male Swimmer as a sophomore and was awarded CCIW Swimmer of the Week honors multiple times. He was an NCAA qualifier in 2003, 2005, and 2006, placing 10th in the 200 butterfly at the 2006 NCAA Championships.
