Pipers land five on all-conference lists

Heading up the list is Mary Wilkowski (Jr., Savannah, Ga.), named All-MIAC for the third year in a row. Earlier this week, Wilkowski was also named a finalist for the prestigious Jostens Trophy.

Wilkowski shot 50 percent from the field, averaged 16.9 ppg and pulled down 8.9 rebounds per game. On January 30 she reached the 1,000-career point milestone, becoming just the ninth woman at Hamline to do so.

Tromesa May (Fy., St. Louis Park, Minn.) was won the sixth player of the year award for her play off the bench for the Pipers. May, who joined the team in January, averaged 9.1 ppg and 6.7 rebounds per game. She also had 11 blocks and 11 steals.

Guard Kara Poirier (Fy., Eau Claire, Wis.) was named to the All-First-Year Team, as she averaged 6.2 ppg and tallied 25 steals and 53 assists. She also added two blocked shots.

Juniors Jackie Kelly (Blaine, Minn.) and Nikki Klinck (Hibbing, Minn.) were named honorable mention All-Conference. Kelly's 11.2 ppg was second on the team. She tallied 75 assists and 26 steals this season.

Klinck had 105 assists and averaged 9.5 ppg. She also had 49 steals.

As part of a conference-wide sportsmanship initiative, the MIAC announced the fourth annual All-MIAC Sportsmanship team for women's basketball. Members of the All-MIAC Sportsmanship team are selected by their coaches and teammates as individuals who demonstrate ideals of positive sportsmanship both on and off the field of competition.

Rochelle Sather (Sr., Andover, Minn.) was named Hamline's representative to the All-Sportsmanship Team.
