was named one of 40 All-America finalists in eight geographical regions. This is the first such honor for any Muhlenberg women’s basketball athlete.

“You come in as a freshman, and you’re so in awe of all the players above you,” Courtney said, “so to be added to that list of great basketball players is an unbelievable feeling.”

WBCA coaches in each of the eight regions vote on the top women’s basketball players across the country, and 40 of those players are named regional finalists for Kodak/WBCA All-America honors. Ten of those 40 are chosen to the All-America team by a selection committee, and the remaining 30 receive honorable mention status.

Courtney was also recently named to the Division III All-Mid-Atlantic Region second team, sponsored by D3hoops.com, for the second straight year. The nominees were selected by their respective sports information directors, and all of the SIDs voted on the finalists in each region.

“It doesn’t sound right [to be called one of the best players in the country],” Courtney said. “Playing basketball is something I’ve always just done for fun, and I’ve enjoyed my team so much. The accolades are icing on the cake for a career that means so much more to me and that has developed me as a person.”

This has been a celebrated final season for Courtney, as she scored the 1,000th point of her career and guided the Mules to the Centennial Conference playoffs for the second year in a row.

She led the team in scoring (15.3 ppg), rebounding (9.4 rpg), field goal percentage (.425) and blocked shots (51), and her totals landed her among the Centennial Conference leaders in each of those categories. She also finished third on the team with 26 steals.

Courtney graduates among the leaders all-time at Muhlenberg in several categories. She is second in blocked shots (112), third in scoring (1,076 points) and in a tie for fifth place in rebounds (665).
