Averaging 22.3 points-per-game this season, it's no wonder Penn State Women's Basketball junior point-guard Jessica Segilia earned five separate top honors in the PSUAC ( Pennsylvania State University Athletic Conference) and the USCAA (United States Collegiate Athletic Association), including USCAA 1st Team All-American, the highest honor a Penn State Worthington Scranton player can receive today.
In the Penn State Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, the PSUAC, Jess was named 1st Team All-Conference, Academic-All Conference and Player of the Year after leading her team to it's first post-season play in Penn State Worthington Scranton Women's Basketball history. Shortly after the Human Development and Family Studies major earned herself USCAA Academic-All American for retaining over a 3.5 GPA throughout her season. Segilia, a Riverside graduate, will return to Penn State Scranton's line up next year for her senior season.
Segilia, Penn State Scranton's top award recipient this year, is joined by three Penn State Worthington Scranton cross-country runners, Diana Kloss, Amber Martin and Breanna Toolan, all of whom have also earned PSUAC All-Conference 1st Team. In addition, 30 Penn State Worthington Scranton varsity athletes earned the PSUAC Academic All-Conference Award for the Fall 2012 season, including Paola Andujar, Sarah Donald, Mollie Fenwick, Kara MacClean, Rupali Patel, Alyssa Strausser, Beth Yuschovitz, Mohammad Abdul, Akhmet Ashimov, Angelo Brutico, Justin Kurek, Levi Schmidt, Maor Tel-Tzur, Kayla Evanina, Diana Kloss, Sandra Leeson, Amber Martin, Brooke Reynolds, Toni Slack-Miller, Amanda Smith, Mike Bouselli, Shane Hart, Kade Kolheffer, and Banney Ley.
