(Friday, March 15; Sioux Center, Iowa) Post-season honors were announced for the recently completed women’s basketball season by the College Sports Information Directors Assocation (CoSIDA) and the NAIA on Thursday, March 14 and Dordt’s Erika Feenstra (Sophomore; Hull, Iowa) was honored by both organizations.
Feenstra, an Exercise Science major, was selected as a second-team honoree for All-American status by the NAIA and was a second-team pick for Google Cloud CoSIDA Academic All-American honors. Earlier this month Feenstra was named an Academic All-District First-Team honoree and a GPAC First-Team member.
Feenstra averaged 20.5 points per game with 7.6 rebounds and converted 58.4 percent of her field goal attempts this season while helping the Defenders to a 20-12 record and a first-ever berth in the NAIA Division II National Championship field. She established new single season records for points (637), points per game average, field goals made (226), free throws made (172), free throws attempted (233) and offensive rebounds (138). She also established a single-game scoring record with 43 points against Northwestern on November 28.
Feenstra is the third player in Dordt women’s basketball to earn all-American honors as she joins Lisa Roos (Second-Team 1998-99) and Amber Soodsma (Third-Team 2010-11) on the short list. Feenstra is the first women’s basketball player to be honored by CoSIDA with Academic All-American honors.
All-American honors are based on all-conference selections from across the nation. CoSIDA Academic All-America honorees are voted on by members of CoSIDA and must be a sophomore, junior or senior with at least a 3.3 cumulative grade point average.
