St. Thomas Women's Basketball center Hannah Spaulding's impressive junior season was capped with the highest honor -- she was announced Thursday night as one of 10 first-team All-Americas on the WBCA Coaches' honor team.
Spaulding was one of only two non-senior honorees among the elite 10 All-Americas.
Thirty other players were named WBCA honorable mention All-America. Spaulding was the lone MIAC player selected on either team.
This marks the fifth All-America honor in the last four seasons for Coach Ruth Sinn's Tommie program -- Spaulding joins two-time honoree and 2017 National Player of the Year Kaitlin Langer, and 2015 honorees Jenna Dockter and Maggie Weiers.
