IUP tabs Appleby women’s senior athlete of year
Carolyn Appleby gathered numerous accolades after a prosperous senior season on the basketball court at IUP. So, what’s one more?
Appleby on Tuesday was named the IUP Women’s Senior of the Year as part of the school’s Crimson and Gray athletic awards.
She also took home the school’s postseason player of the year award.
Appleby, a Greensburg Central Catholic graduate, was named an All-American as she helped guide the Crimson Hawks (30-4) return to the NCAA Division II semifinals, as well as the No. 1 ranking in the country and another PSAC title.
She averaged 17.9 points and scored 606 points for the season — to go with 133 assists and 58 steals, 49 3-pointers and a 42.8 shooting percentage. Her performance in the PSAC Tournament earned her MVP honors and she also made the Atlantic Region all-tournament team.
