Members of the Lakeland College women's basketball team were recognized for their efforts during the 2007-08 season at the team's annual banquet held on Friday, April 25.
Team members selected sophomore guard KC Blahnik (Gladstone, Mich./Gladstone) as the Most Valuable Player, while sophomore guard Terra Hiben (Boyceville) received the Hustle Award, sophomore guard Megan Chart (Burlington/Waterford Union) received the Muskie Award and sophomore guard Katie Peters (Mishicot) was named the Most Improved Player.
Blahnik, a member of this year's second team All-Northern Athletics Conference team, started all 26 games for the Muskies while leading the team in field-goal accuracy at 39 percent and on the glass with 7.6 rebounds per game. She was also second in scoring at 11.1 points per game and third in steals with 42.
Hiben was able to greatly increase her contributions from her freshman year, using her quickness to become one of the Muskies' most dangerous defensive weapons. She was second on the team in steals with 54 while also chipping in 4.8 ppg and 3.8 rpg.
Chart's continued leadership as the squad's starting point guard clearly led to her reception of the Muskie Award, which recognizes the student-athlete that embodies everything a Muskie should, such as attitude and work ethic both on and off the field. She led the team in assists with 78 while averaging 6.8 ppg and 4.0 rpg.
Although it was Peters' first season with the Muskies, she made great strides throughout the year and became a "spark plug" off the bench down the stretch. She appeared in 15 games, shooting 50 percent from the floor for 1.3 ppg.
