MILWAUKEE – Senior Holly Denfeld of the MSOE women's basketball team has received WBCA NCAA Division III Coaches' All-America honorable mention, the coaches' association has announced.
Denfeld has earned the honor for the second-straight season to become the first two-time All-American in program history. She was also a repeat selection as NACC Player of the Year, as well as to the D3hoops.com All-Region First Team.
Denfeld led the league in scoring, rebounding, and field goal percentage this season. In 25 games, she averaged a double-double of 20.2 points and 11.1 rebounds and shot a school-record 58.7 percent from the field. She posted 17 double-doubles this season and scored 20-plus points 12 times with four 28-point games and a 39-point outing on 17-of-19 shooting vs. Dominican Feb. 11.
The final campaign has also helped to etch Denfeld's name in rare company. She became the program's all-time leading scorer with 1,825 points. She also became just the second Raider, and third player in league history, to 1,000 career points and rebounds, reaching the milestone Feb. 1, and finishing her career with 1,054 career boards.
The first four-time all-league first-team member in NACC history, Denfeld has also been named to the 2017 Allstate Good Works Team this season as just one of five players from Divisions II-III and NAIA among the 10 players honored.
The All-America award is the fourth for MSOE women's basketball. Catherine Chappell in 2007 and Carol Cayo in 2012 have also earned honorable mention honors.
