LATHAM, N.Y. – Thanks to her stellar performance on the court this season, Penn State Harrisburg women's basketball player Kendis Butler has earned first-team all-conference recognition from the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC).
Butler was named to the NEAC All-Conference First Team following an historic 2019-20 campaign. It is the first all-conference accolade of her young career.
The sophomore ranked second in the nation in 3-point field goals made (95) and third in the country in 3-point field goals per game, connecting on 3.65 per contest. The York, Pa. native led the Lions and ranked fifth in the league in scoring with a 16.3 points-per-game average. She was second in the conference in minutes played (926) and fourth in free throws made (83), while her 424 total points ranked second among conference players and stand as a single-season program record. Earlier this winter, Butler set the program's single-game scoring mark (33 points) and knocked down a program-record 10 3-pointers in a single contest before becoming the program's career 3-point field goal leader with 157 made.
Lancaster Bible's Caitlin Hickey was named the NEAC Player of the Year, while Gallaudet's Cassidy Perry earned NEAC Rookie of the Year honors. Morrisville State's Erin Skaradek was voted the NEAC Coach of the Year by her peers.
