Woerner receives second straight All-Atlantic Region honor

WASHINGTON – Junior Jill Woerner was named to the All-Atlantic Region Team on Monday, marking the second straight season she has earned the honor.  A third team selection, Woerner led CUA in scoring this season with 13.1 points per game.

A two-time First Team All-Landmark Conference selection, Woerner's versatility once again paved the way for a terrific season.  The native of Providence ranked among the conference leaders in scoring (4th), rebounding (13th), field goal percentage (5th), free throw percentage (11th), steals (10th) and blocks (6th).

Woerner scored in double figures 17 times in 2011-12, with a season-high of 23 points coming in the Landmark Conference championship game vs. Juniata.  She was named the Landmark Conference Player of the Week on two occasions (December 19, February 20), and also received D3Hoops.com Team of the Week laurels on December 22.

A 5-11 guard, Woerner also eclipsed the 1,000-point mark for her career this season, scoring the milestone basket in a win over Susquehanna on February 11.  Woerner stole a pass and went coast-to-coast for a layup to become the 18th woman in CUA history to score 1,000 career points.    

With Woerner leading the way, CUA won a program record 22 games this season, which included the Cardinals first-ever conference championship.  CUA also earned its first bid to the NCAA Tournament where the Cards took on Muhlenberg in Alliance, Ohio on March 2.
