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
“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.
