Hageman, Hellmann & McCoy Receive All-UAA Honors

Case Western Reserve University junior forward Kara Hageman was selected to the All-University Athletic Association First Team, while senior guard Jess McCoy and sophomore guard/forward Hillary Hellmann were each named to the All-Conference Second Team, based on their performances during the 2016-17 season.


It marked the third-straight season that Hageman was selected to the All-UAA Team, after received honorable mentions during each of the previous two seasons.  She also becomes first Spartan to be named to the All-UAA First Team since Evy Iacono during the 2012-13 campaign, and it marked the 16th time overall that a CWRU player has been selected to the all-conference first team.

McCoy claimed All-UAA Second Team honors for the second-straight season, while Hellmann claimed the first all-conference award of her career.  It was the first time since 2007-08 and just the third time overall that CWRU has had three players named to the All-UAA First and Second Teams, combined.

Hageman became the first woman in program history to score 500 points in a season, finishing the year with 502.  She finished the year ranked third in the UAA in points per game (20.1) and second with 2.0 blocks per game, while also adding 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game, and shooting 49.4% from the floor, including a 33.6% mark from behind the three-point line.  Hageman set a school single-game record with 41 points and 16 field goals against Washington University on January 29th, and was later named the Division III Player of the Week.  She also earned UAA Athlete of the Week honors twice, and was selected to the D3hoops.com Team of the Week once during the year.

McCoy was third on the team and sixth in the UAA with 15.4 points per game, while also leading the team with 6.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.1 steals per game, in addition to a Spartan-best 49.5% shooting mark.  Her 38.8% mark from long range ranked second on the team and fourth in the conference during the season.  In addition, she became the 13th-player in program history to reach the 1,000 point mark for her career during the season, and finished her time at CWRU with 1,134 points, the eighth-most points ever by a Spartan.

Hellmann set school-records with 73 made three pointers during the season and a 47.4 three-point percentage, leading all UAA players and ranking second among Division III players during the season.  Her 437 points scored during the season were the fourth-most in program history, and her 17.5 points per game were fourth in the UAA during the 2016-17 campaign.  Hellmann shot 44.6% overall from the floor during the year, while adding 4.6 rebounds per contest.

The Spartans finished the 2016-17 season with a 13-12 overall record, including a 5-9 mark in the UAA.
