Women's Basketball - Fri, Mar. 30, 2012
Georgetown College women's basketball team had a banner
season, highlighted by several Mid-South Conference postseason accolades and
national academic honors.
The Tigers, who finished No. 11 in the postseason poll,
have consistently been recognized for their academic achievements and nothing
changed this season. Seven women - Jessica Waddle, Mikkah Rogers, Gina Beining,
Devon Golden, Lindsay Fultz, Andrea Howard and Lizza Jonas - earned MSC
All-Academic honors, the most representatives from any team in the league.
In order to be eligible, the student-athlete must earn a
3.25 or higher and be a sophomore or higher standing.
Four of those seven women - Waddle, Beining, Golden and
Fultz - also earned Daktronics NAIA Scholar Athlete Honors, earning a 3.5 and
junior or higher standing. Four is also the most from any MSC team.
Howard also earned First-Team All-Conference, following a
breakout season. She averaged 15 points per game, shooting 39.6 percent from
the field, and 6.2 rebounds per game. Waddle and Golden both earned
All-Conference Honorable Mention.
Coach Andrea McCloskey rounded out the night by earning
Co-Coach of the Year honors with University of the Cumberlands Missy Irvin.
