San Antonio - Five members of the Trinity women's basketball team have been elected to the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Teams with the announcement made Saturday at the SCAC Tournament at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas.
Junior Abby Holland was tabbed for the All-SCAC First Team, first-year Hailey Coleman was voted the SCAC Co-Newcomer of the Year and All-SCAC Second Team, and sophomore Emily Daniel was a Third Team honoree. Sophomores Julia Ackerman and Jordan Rudd rounded out the honors on the Honorable Mention Team.
Holland received First Team accolades for the second year in a row after making the Third Team in the 2016-17 season. The Tiger forward became Trinity's all-time single-game leading scorer as she fired in 43 points in a home matchup with Schreiner (TX) University earlier this month. Entering the SCAC Tournament, Holland averaged 17.4 points per game and shot 51.6% from the field. She averaged 5.9 rebounds and chalked up 66 steals and 46 assists. Holland also eclipsed the 1,000-career points mark recently. In Saturday's semifinal game against Colorado College, Holland poured in a new SCAC Tournament record 38 points to lead Trinity to the victory, hitting 15-28 from the field to go with eight rebounds and four steals.
Coleman, a strong defensive player, led the team with 30 total blocked shots. The forward/center averaged 9.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game and was shooting 60.9% prior to the SCAC Tournament.
Daniel was selected for the All-SCAC Third Team for the second consecutive season. The Tiger guard averaged 10.3 points on 43.1% shooting. She pulled in 3.7 rebounds per game and amassed 38 steals and 30 assists.
Ackerman is now a two-time All-SCAC Honorable Mention Team recipient. The Trinity guard led the squad with 83 assists in her column and made 46 steals during the regular season. Ackerman averaged 5.5 points per contest.
Rudd is a first-time All-SCAC honoree. Joining Ackerman in the backcourt, Rudd had 75 assists and 40 steals to her credit. She averaged 5.1 points per game, shot 43.3% from the field, and 45% from 3-point range.
Led by seventh-year Head Coach Cameron Hill, the top-seeded Tigers (22-4) will play for their fourth consecutive SCAC Championship on Sunday at 12 p.m. against host Texas Lutheran University.
