IUP’s Carolyn Appleby drives to the hoop against Cal (Pa.)’s Bianca Jasper on March 18, 2019, in the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional Championship in Glenville, W.Va.

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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
