Beatrice, NE (April 10, 2019) – Sophomore guard Morgan Frauendorfer was named to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II All-America women's basketball third team this week. The Humphrey native averaged 19 points per game and made 78 percent of her free-throw attempts this season.
"My coach and teammates were absolutely amazing and are a big part of this accomplishment," she said. "With hard work and dedication I was able to succeed at this level. It's a really great feeling to end my career with this amazing honor."
Coach Lynn Schlake said she is the toughest player he has ever coached, and she will be missed next season.
"She was fearless in her drive to the basket, and I often felt her pain as she hit the floor from a hard foul," Schlake said. "But she would get up, shake off the pain and go hit the free throws. She made the team, the school and her family very proud with her hard work and drive to perform at the highest level possible."
Frauendorfer had a number of high-scoring games this season, including tying the school record for points scored in a game with 40 in an 89-86 loss to McCook on Feb. 18.
"Since I was a little kid my dream was to play college basketball, and I was able to accomplish that dream through SCC and blossom through the program," Frauendorfer said.
The Storm finished with a 9-20 season record. Frauendorfer will transfer to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the fall to study business.
