St. Catharine College seniors Janae Howard and Reilly Poirier were selected yesterday to the first team All Mid-South Conference. It was the first time Poirier gained the first team honor while Howard made it for the second consecutive year.
Howard, an Owensboro, Ky. native, averaged 19.4 points and seven rebounds a game for the Patriots, even while hampered by leg injuries throughout the year that kept her out of seven games entirely and limited her minutes in most other games. She was selected twice this season as the Mid-South Conference Player of the Week.
Poirier was second on the team in scoring behind Howard with a 17.3 average. She led the team in rebounding with 9.7 boards a game. The Denis, Mass. native started all 28 games this season.
