BUENA VISTA, Va. – Southern Virginia freshman Katie Garrish has recently been named the women's basketball Mid-Atlantic Rookie of the Year by D3hoops.com, becoming the first player in program history to receive an All-Region honor by the website.
The award comes after an impressive freshman campaign in which Garrish was second in the Capital Athletic Conference in points per game at 15.0, and led the conference in rebounds per game at 11.2, and in blocks per game with 3.1. Garrish set a program record with 16 double-doubles this year, including 10 consecutive early in the season.
The forward helped the Knights to a 12-win season, the most the team has had since 2012-13.
