As both basketball teams prepare for a run at the Centennial Conference championship, a few of the players will have an extra glimmer in their eyes.

Meghan Courtney – a senior on the women’s team – was named co-player of the year in the Centennial Conference. She earns the honor after sitting in a tie for the CC lead in blocked shots (49) this season, as well as ranking third in both scoring (15.5 ppg) and rebounding (9.5 rpg). She also ranks sixth in field-goal percentage (.433). Courtney shares the honor with Katy Powell of McDaniel.

“After four years of hard work, it’s great to see it all culminate into such an honor,” Courtney said. “I owe it all to my incredible teammates and my coaches.”

As co-player of the year, Courtney was also named to the All-CC first team for the

second year in a row, where she is joined by one of her teammates, sophomore Lauren Boyle. This is also the second year in a row that Muhlenberg has placed two players on the first team, after having never previously done so.

“It feels great to be recognized along with the other great players in our league, especially Lauren,” Courtney said. “Lauren is such a great player and she really deserves this honor. You’ll see her as player of the year in the future.”

Boyle, the lone sophomore to appear on the All-CC team, is the fifth-leading scorer in the conference at 14.5 points per game. She also ranks fifth in free-throw percentage (.764) and 11th in assists (61). After only two seasons, Boyle already is closing in on the top 25 on the Mules’ all-time scoring list, with 662 career points.

Courtney leads the Mules in scoring, rebounding, blocks and field-goal percentage, as well as free throws made (74) and attempted (109), and she ranks third on the team in assists (46) and steals (24). She scored her 1,000th point earlier this season and currently ranks third on Muhlenberg’s all-time list in points (1,067), second in blocked shots (110) and sixth in rebounds (659).

On the men’s side, senior Tom Scott received honorable mention. He is the Mules’ leading scorer (11.2 ppg) and second-leading rebounder (4.9 rpg), and he caught fire at the end of the season, earning player-of-the-week honors in consecutive weeks. His team has won five straight games to qualify for the postseason, and in those games Scott averaged 21.0 points and 7.6 rebounds.
