BUENA VISTA, Va.—Southern Virginia University women's senior guard/forward Mina Romito today was named a member of the Great Ships Classic All-Tournament Team for her performance last weekend.
"Mina is deserving of the nomination due to her effectiveness last weekend," said fourteen-year Head Coach Michael Harmon. "Her success on the court is a byproduct of the team's execution of our game plan to play smart and take care of the ball."

Romito (Walker, La.) led Southern Virginia in scoring as she averaged 16.5 points-per-game including recording double-doubles in victories over Bennett College—15 points and 10 steals—on Friday and Penn State-Fayette—18 points and 11 rebounds—on Saturday during the Great Ships Classic hosted by the Apprentice School.
