Three Lady Redhawks Awarded All-Conference Honors

Today the AMCC All-Conference selections were announced and the La Roche women's basketball team was well represented.

Sophomore center, Jessica Pitts, became the first Lady Redhawk's player to win the AMCC Player of the Year Award, unseating Casey Stanton from Pitt-Greensburg who won last year. Pitts was also selected as the AMCC Defensive Player of the Year and to the All-Conference First Team.

Casie Cygan was named to the AMCC All-Conference Third Team after averaging 11.5 ppg and finishing second in the conference in three-point field goals.

Head Coach, Eddie Benton, was named the AMCC Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season. Benton led the Lady Redhawks to a 22-5 record and a school-record 17 conference wins. He also guided La Roche to their second consecutive AMCC Regular Season Championship, Tournament Title, and a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
