Janna Graf, the captain of the 2013-14 Bulldogs, led her team to a 64-55 season opening victory over Monmouth this past weekend. She needs just 107 more points to become the 18th player in Yale's history to record 1,000 career points. Graf has exceled both on and off the court in her time at Yale, which makes her this week's Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week.
Graf was named to the All-Ivy Rookie team in her freshman. The following year, she started in all 28 games, averaging 10.6 points per game, 5.8 rebounds per game, and 1.5 assists per game. Last year, she was named All-Ivy League Honorable Mention after leading the Bulldogs in rebounding (151), steals (45), blocks (11), and 3-pointers (53). Graf has started in 58 straight games dating back to Yale's game with Boston College in the opening round of the WNIT on March 17, 2011.
This past summer, Graf participated in a 10-week sales and trading program at Royal Bank of Scotland in Stamford, Conn., where she received an intern-wide award for most successful mock foreign exchange trading account. Graf is also an administrative assistant in Yale's football office.
Graf has been volunteering at the New Haven Soup Kitchen since 2011, helping prepare and serve meals to community members in need. She is also a member of Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority, where she serves as a fundraising organizer to support the nonprofit Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
