Brouse Repeats as All-Sportsmanship Selection
LANCASTER, Pa. — Washington College senior guard Ali Grundy (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga) has been named to the All-Centennial Conference second team in a vote conducted by the conference's 11 head coaches. She is the seventh different player in team history to be named to the All-Centennial first or second teams and the first since 2013.
Grundy started all 25 games for the Shorewomen, averaging a team-best 13.6 points per game and knocking down 2.4 three-pointers per game on 38.2% shooting from beyond the arc, both team-best marks. She also shot 83.6% from the free-throw line (tops on the team among players who averaged at least one attempt per game), averaged a team-best 1.2 steals, and handed out 2.0 assists per game, second-most on the team. She scored 20 or more points in a game nine times this season, including a streak of four consecutive games — the first such streak in team history. Grundy is currently tied for third in the conference in three-pointers per game this season, ranks fourth in three-point percentage, and ranks seventh in points per game.
Elise Conway (2008) and Meghan Tait (2012) are the only Shorewomen to have ever landed on the All-Centennial first team. Eboni Taylor (1995, 1997), Katie Bierzonski (2001), Katie Piringer (2003), and Ashley Espinosa (2013) were the program's second-team selections prior to Grundy. The last Shorewoman to earn All-Centennial honors of any kind was Emily Hubley, who was selected as an honorable mention two years ago.
The Centennial Conference All-Sportsmanship Team for women's basketball was also announced with each institution able to nominate one student-athlete. Junior forward Brynne Brouse (Slatington, Pa./Parkland) was the Shorewomen's representative for the second year in a row.
