WAUKESHA, Wis. - Lakeland College senior forward Becky Mayo (Gladstone, Mich.) has been named a First Team All-Northern Athletics Conference performer, as the NAC released its women's basketball all-conference awards on Tuesday.
Mayo was one of two Muskies to receive all-conference honors. She is joined by fellow frontcourt teammate Leah Eisner (Jr.-Stevens Point, Wis.) who was named a second team all-conference selection.
Mayo concluded her four-year Lakeland career with her first-ever first team all-conference nod. She averaged 12.1 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this season, leading the NAC in rebounding. Mayo also averaged 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocked shots per game, tying for fifth in the conference in blocked shots.
The 5-11 forward finished her four-year career with totals of 735 points, 490 rebounds, 80 steals and 80 blocks. She ranks fourth in school history in blocked shots, and her 254 rebounds this season also are the fifth-most in a season in Lakeland women's basketball history.
"Becky has been an incredible leader both on and off the court, an excellent student and representative of our women's basketball program," said Lakeland Head Coach Lindsey Vande Hoef. She worked incredibly hard this offseason to set herself up to have a great senior year and we are so proud of her! There is no one more deserving of this honor. She will be hard to replace next season."
Eisner emerged this season as one of the NAC's premier low-post threats on the offensive end, leading the Muskies and ranking second in the conference with 14.8 points per game. The 6-1 post player was fourth in the NAC in rebounding with 8.4 caroms per game, and tied Mayo for fifth in the conference with 1.3 blocked shots per game. Eisner also added 1.6 steals per game and also added a perimeter element to her game, making 20 three-pointers.
"Leah was a huge part of our success this season," said Vande Hoef. "She worked very hard to come back from her ACL injury and has proven herself to be one of the top post players in the conference. It will be exciting to see what impact she has for our team next season as a senior."
Mayo and Eisner helped the Muskies finish 12-14 overall this year, including 10-8 in the NAC North Division. Lakeland rallied late in the season to tie for fourth in the division, and Lakeland qualified for the NAC Tournament, where it was eliminated in the quarterfinals by eventual tournament champion Wisconsin Lutheran College.
