After both putting together solid freshman campaigns during the 2010-2011 season, Seward County freshman Ashlynn Knoll and Mariah Lee have both been named Honorable Mention All-American by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association. The WBCA differs from the NJCAA All-American teams in the fact that they pool all divisions together to form their teams rather than having an All-American team for each division.

Knoll draws the honor after earlier being named a 1st Team All-Conference and a 2nd Team All-Region selection as she led the Lady Saints in scoring this season at 12.1 points per game. She was also Seward’s leading rebounder on the year at just under 7 per game and finished second on the team in both blocked shots and steals. Lee earns her third Honorable Mention choice after the Lady Saints freshman forward was named both Honorable Mention All-Conference and Honorable Mention All-Region at season’s end. Lee finished second on the team in both points (11.1) and rebounds (5.5) while leading the Lady Saints in field goal percentage on the season, shooting at a 45% clip.
