YORK, PA – The York College women's basketball team received good news on Tuesday morning as senior Sam Hruz and junior Morgan Kuehne earned All-Capital Athletic Conference honors as announced by the league office. Hruz makes her third straight appearance on the All-CAC squads and earned her second straight first-team honor. Kuehne earned her first all-league honors as she was a second team selection for 2016-17.
Hruz completed her outstanding Spartan career playing in 24 games with 23 starts. She averaged 8.6 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.7 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 3.0 blocked shots per game. Hruz shot 35.5% from the floor, 26% from three and 70% from the free throw line. Hruz averaged 29 minutes per game for the Green and White.
"While Sam's scoring was down a little bit during the year, she did many other things really well during the year," said Spartan head coach Betsy Witman. "Sam had a great career for us and I am sure we will miss her next year."
Hruz finished second in the CAC in rebounds per game, second in blocked shots per game, eighth in steals per game, and third in assists per game.
Hruz concluded her career with 922 points, 699 rebounds, 284 assists, a school-record 251 blocked shots, and 195 steals in 107 career games. She shot 38.5% from the field, 26.3% from three and 72.5% from the free throw line during her Spartan career.
Hruz was a second team selection as a sophomore and a first team pick as a junior for the Spartans. She recorded a team-best five double-doubles for the year and ended her career with 17 double-doubles.
Kuehne was outstanding as a junior for the Spartans. She averaged a team-leading 12.2 points per game while she also pulled in 3.6 rebound and dished out 1.4 assists per game. She shot 44.5% from the floor and 69.5% from the free throw line.
"Morgan had a really good year," says Witman. "She came into the season in fantastic shape and it showed during the year. Morgan was very consistent and I am happy to see her be recognized for her outstanding play."
Kuehne enters her senior year having totaled 678 points, 218 rebounds, 77 assists, 24 blocked shots and 50 steals in her 77 career games. She is a career 44.3% shooter from the floor and owns a career free throw percentage of 68.5%.
Kuehne is 12th in the league in scoring, seventh in field goal percentage and sixth in field goals per game.
Witman is slated to return five of her top eight scorers next year headlined by Kuehne and fellow junior Katie Wagner. The Spartans finished the year with 18 wins and that marks the fifth time in the last six years that the Spartans have won 18 or more games.
