Woerner receives All-America honors from D3Hoops.com

WASHINGTON – For the second time in the last week, senior Jill Woerner has been named a 2013 All-American. This time, the honor comes from D3Hoops.com, which named Woerner a Fourth Team All-American. Earlier in the week, Woerner received All-America accolades from the WBCA.

The Landmark Conference and ECAC Player of the Year, Woerner leaves CUA as the second all-time leading scorer with 1,544 career points. The Providence native was selected to the All-Landmark Conference First Team and was also named an ECAC All-Star.

Woerner collected two Landmark Player of the Week awards in 2012-13, as she helped carry CUA to its second straight conference championship and NCAA Tournament appearance.

Woerner ranks in the top 10 of seven statistical categories within the Landmark Conference. She scored in double figures 27 times this season, including a career-high 29 points vs. Eureka.

The 5-11 guard posted four double-doubles throughout the season, which includes a season-high 12 rebounds in a win over William Paterson. One of the Cards' captains, Woerner dropped 25 points in an overtime win against Moravain on February 16, which clinched the top seed in the conference tournament for CUA.

A biomedical engineering major, Woerner averaged 16.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. She helped lead CUA to its first national ranking and first NCAA Tournament victory this season. In addition, she was a finalist for the prestigious Jostens Trophy, presented annually to the top male and female basketball student-athletes in Division III.
