WINONA LAKE — After a stellar year, Grace College’s women’s basketball team saw a pair of players earn national honors.
Maddie Ryman and Karlee Feldman’s efforts on the hardwood were recognized nationally as both players earned All-American status this past week.
Ryman was named NCCAA First Team All-American as well as honorable mention for NAIA All-American. Feldman was named NCCAA Third Team All-American
In her first season with Grace, Feldman — a product of Bremen high school — had a massive impact as Grace’s starting center. She averaged a double-double for the season with 14.3 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. She also shattered the program’s single-season double-double record with 22 on the season. She bested the previous mark of 14 which was set in 2015 by Allison Kauffman.
Ryman and Feldman’s contributions helped propel the Lady Lancers to a memorable season.
Grace made the Crossroads League semifinals and qualified for the NCCAA National Championships for the seventh consecutive season.
The Lady Lancers also tied the single-season record for wins, reaching the 20-win mark for the third time in program history.
Ryman and Feldman were part of a quartet of Lady Lancers who were also selected to the NCCAA All-Region team.
Ryman won Midwest Region Player of the Year, and Feldman was recognized as a first-team selection. Kiersten Poor made the second team, and Kenzie McMahon was an honorable mention.
