WAUKESHA, Wis. – Lakeland College senior center Leah Eisner
(Stevens Point, Wis.
) and freshman point guard Kayla Clark
(West Bend, Wis.
) both have received All-Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference recognition for their seasons, as the NACC released its women's basketball all-conference awards Monday.
Eisner was named a second team all-conference selection for the second consecutive season, while Clark was named to the five-player All-Freshman Team. Both received the honors after the Muskies finished 9-16 overall this season and tied for ninth with a 6-14 conference record.
Eisner wrapped up her Lakeland career by averaging 14.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocked shots per game this season. The 6-foot-1 post player shot 43.4% from the field and 69.1% from the free throw line, and ranks among the NACC leaders in a number of categories. Eisner is currently fourth in the conference in rebounding, fifth in blocked shots and sixth in scoring.
Eisner's numbers were almost identical to last year, when she averaged 14.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks. She overcame a slow start to the season to score in double figures in her final 16 games, and also finished with six double-doubles.
Eisner finished her career among Lakeland's all-time leaders in a number of categories. She became just the 10th player in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark and finishes her career 10th on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,083 points. Her 587 career rebounds also rank ninth all-time at the school, and she is third all-time in blocks with 96.
Clark stepped into the Muskies' starting lineup as a freshman and started every game she played, missing just one contest due to sickness. The 5-foot-3 guard averaged 5.3 points, 2.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game, shooting 29.9% from the field and 75.6% from the free throw line.
Clark improved as the season went on, averaging 4.9 assists per game over Lakeland's final eight games. She led the Muskies in assists and was second among regulars in free throw shooting, and she also finished 10th in the NACC for the season in assists.
