ATLANTA — The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has named Lee University sophomore guard Hollie German a member of the Coaches’ All-America Team Honorable Mention, the organization announced.
German, an Old Fort native who played for legendary coach Ron Davis at Polk County High School, led the No. 7 ranked Lady Flames in scoring this season, dropping in 16.4 points per game.
She was also named Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) Co-Divisional Player of the Year earlier this year.
In addition to the honor for German, Coach Marty Rowe has been named WBCA NAIA Region Five Coach of the Year.
