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
