Women's basketball's Hnatuck named to ECAC Division III South All-Star team

(Posted March 22, 2011)

HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Juniata College women's basketball senior Jen Hnatuck (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Trinity) added to her growing list of honors on Tuesday, when she was selected for the ECAC Division III South All-Star squad.

Hnatuck, who was a Second team selection to the ECAC South All-Stars, was voted onto the squad by the head coaches of ECAC members in Pennsylvania, Maryland, the District of Columbia.

The award is the most recent accolade for Hnatuck, who earned a spot on the D3hoops.com All-Mid-Atlantic Region squad last week. She was named a First team All-Landmark Conference selection by the Landmark's head coaches, as well as one of the conference's Tri-Players of the Year.

Hnatuck helped guide the Eagles to a 22-7 record, second-highest win total in program history, and the program's first conference championship.

Juniata advanced to the NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Championship for the third time in program history and the second time in the last four seasons, hosting the first and second rounds at the Kennedy Sports + Recreation Center.

During the 2010-11 season, Hnatuck scored a team high of 356 points across the 29 game season, averaging 12.3 per game. She also led the Eagles in free-throw percentage with an impressive 83.5% and was second on the team in rebounds with 236, averaging 8.1 per game. The season long starter was also second on the team in field goal percentage, 43.1%, and led the team in blocks with 14.

Hnatuck was one of two Landmark Conference players to earn a spot on the ECAC Division III South All-Star team, joining Moravian College senior guard Amy Heffner.
