Emily DeNoyer, a senior at Carroll University, was named a top 10 finalist for the 2014 Jostens Trophy in women’s basketball. The Jostens Trophy is an award presented by the Salem Rotary Club of Virginia to an excelling NCAA Division III men’s and women’s basketball player. To be considered for this award, players must shine in the classroom, in the community and on the floor.

Emily is the second Pioneer woman and third Carroll basketball player to be a finalist for the Jostens Trophy.

“Emily is very deserving of this prestigious honor. She has been a model student and athlete since her arrival at Carroll four years ago,” said head coach Kris Jacobsen. “Emily has thrived in the classroom, on the court and in the community. She has been a valuable asset to the Carroll women’s basketball program and the University in general.”

This season, she led the Pioneers in scoring 14.8 points per game and became the 14th player in program history to score 1,000 career points.

Emily, an exercise science major, is a 2010 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran High School and a resident of Waukesha.

The Jostens Trophy is a national award created by the Rotary Club of Salem, Va., to honor the most outstanding men's and women's NCAA Division III basketball players of the year. The award takes into account three vital parts: basketball ability, academic prowess and community service. The trophy models the Rotary International motto of “Service Above Self” by recognizing those who truly fit the ideal of the well-rounded NCAA Division III student-athlete. This year’s class marks the 17th year the award has been presented. For more information, visit www.odaconline.com/jostens
