Saint Vincent senior forward Brittany Sedlock has been named one of 10 finalists for the 2012 edition of the prestigious Jostens Trophy, announced the Rotary Club of Salem, Va.
The Jostens Trophy, given annually to the most outstanding men's and women's players in NCAA Division III, has been in existence for 15 years. Final ballots are due no later than March 6, with the winning schools notified by March 8.
Sedlock, a native of Northern Cambria, Pa., and a graduate of Northern Cambria High School, was recently named the Presidents' Athletic Conference Player of the Year for a consecutive season, while also being a two-time First-Team All-PAC selection. She was named a Capital One First-Team Academic All-American earlier this month after being a two-time Academic All-District pick.
This season, Sedlock has helped lead the Bearcats to their second-straight NCAA Tournament appearance in both years as a full-time member of NCAA Division III. SVC enters the national championship tournament with a 22-6 record after finishing 15-3 in league play and advancing to the conference championship game for a second year in a row. The 5-9 forward ranks first in the conference in scoring with 16.6 points per game, and rebounding at 10.0 boards per contest. She also ranks among the league leaders in most statistical categories, including field-goal percentage, free-throw percentage and assists.
The 2012 Jostens Trophy presentation is scheduled for Thursday, March 15 at the Salem Civic Center in conjunction with the Men's Division III Championships, which will take place in Salem, Va., from March 16-17.
The Jostens Trophy is a national award created by the Rotary Club of Salem, Va., to honor the most outstanding men's and women's Division III basketball players of the year. The award takes into account three vital parts: basketball ability, academic prowess and community service.
