Woerner named ECAC Player of the Year and 1st Team All-Star

WASHINGTON – Jill Woerner has been named the 2013 ECAC South Player of the Year, it was announced on Thursday. Woerner, who also received First Team All-Star accolades, was named the Landmark Conference Player of the Year and a First Team All-Conference selection last month.

A native of Providence, Woerner leaves CUA as the second leading scorer in school history with 1,544 career points. She was named the Landmark Conference Player of the Week twice this season, in helping to lead the Cardinals to their second straight conference title and NCAA Tournament appearance.

Woerner ranks in the top-10 of seven statistical categories in the Landmark Conference. She scored in double figures 27 times in 2012-13, including a career-high 29 points vs. Eureka.

Woerner 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 Moravian 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 NCAA Tournament victory in school history on March 1.
