UW-Stevens Point’s Petersen Tops All-WIAC Women’s Basketball Team; Egner Named Coach of the Year, Three Falcons Honored

Posted by Falcons Fan on March 1, 2011

 

MADISON, Wis.–University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s Britta Petersen was chosen the Player of the Year to lead the 10 individuals selected to the 2010-11 All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) Women’s Basketball Team by the league coaches, while Pointers head coach Shirley Egner was selected the Coach of the Year.

Petersen’s selection marks the fourth time that a UW-Stevens Point player has secured the WIAC Player of the Year honor. She claimed first team recognition for the third straight season and ranks second in the WIAC with a .576 field goal percentage, third with 14.3 points per game, seventh with 1.85 steals per game and 10th with 2.38 assists per game.

Petersen has reached double-figures in scoring in 21 of 26 games played, including a season-high 25 points in the season opener against University of St. Thomas (Minn.). She surpassed the 20-point mark six times and produced three double-doubles (points-rebounds). Petersen ranks fourth on the school’s all-time scoring list with 1,460 points.

Repeat selections on the first team from a year ago included: UW-Eau Claire’s Hannah Mesick, UW-La Crosse’s Dana Churchill, UW-River Falls’ Tiffany Gregorich and UW-Stevens Point’s Andrea Flease.

The five-member All-Defensive Team included Gregorich, Flease and UW-La Crosse’s Danielle Frank as repeat choices from last season.

Egner secured the coaching honor for the fourth time in her career after directing UW-Stevens Point to the fifth WIAC regular-season championship in program history. The Pointers compiled a 16-0 record during the conference slate to become the sixth team to accomplish the feat since the league went to a 16-game schedule during the 1985-86 campaign. UW-Stevens Point will take a school-record 18-game winning streak into the NCAA Division III Championship.

An All-Sportsmanship Team was chosen for individuals that displayed exemplary sportsmanship throughout the season. It included one member from each school.

Holst is One of Falcons Most Competitive, Determined Players

Posted by Falcons Fan on February 8, 2011

Junior Forward Averages 10.8 Points a Game
Amanda Leeman, UWRF Sports Information

The qualities of a talented athlete are often times decided by which sport they participate in. However, determined and competitive are strong adjectives used to describe many successful athletes.

Junior forward for the women’s basketball team, Alise Holst (Plainview, MN, Plainview-Elgin-Millville), is known for her determination and her competitive edge on and off the court.

The time Holst spends on perfecting her game showcases just how driven this 5-9 junior really is.

“Alise is a perfect example of determination paying off.  She works extremely hard every day in practice and spends extra time in the gym working on her game,” says Falcon Head Coach Cindy Holbrook.

Currently Holst is leading the team in scoring with 237 points in 22 games. She has the second highest scoring average with 10.8 and is one of the most aggressive Falcons chalking up 52 steals, holding the number four spot in the WIAC.

Holst says being determined does have its pitfalls, “I would say that sometimes I am a little over anxious.”

Competiveness is also one of Holst’s strongest attributes, according to Holbrook. “Her versatility and competitiveness are extremely valuable to us.  She’s a strong player for us on both ends of the court and is relentless on the boards.  She’s really developed into a good leader for us this year.”

According to Holst showing up for practice ready to play is very important for any team, especially the Falcons. “[Practice] is very important, especially with shooting,” she said.

The combination of conditioning, and shooting drills in something Holst enjoys most about practice. “It helps your conditioning yet you’re still communicating and shooting at the same time.”

The time spent practicing is definitely paying off for the Falcons.

River Falls is currently 15-7 overall, defeating No. 11 ranked UW-Whitewater, 73-69, in overtime last Saturday at the Karges Center. Holst tallied 12 points, scoring six consecutive points, and clinching the win for the Falcons by sinking both free-throw attempts in the last six seconds of the game.

With just three games remaining in the regular season Holst comments on what she hopes the team will concentrate on before playoffs.

“I just hope that everyone on our team is looking to score and play together. When we’re playing together and talking on defense we really play well.”
