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.
