MIDDLETOWN, Ohio --- Women's Basketball senior forward Emma Stille (Westerville, Ohio) earned first team All-River States Conference honors, the conference announced Monday.

Stille was one of 11 first team honorees as selected by the 12 RSC head coaches.

Stille put up big numbers for the Celtics during her final year on the court.

She ranks in the top 10 in the nation (NAIA DII) in several categories. Stille is first in the nation in defensive rebounds per game (10.77) and total rebounds per game (15.46). She ranks second in total rebounds (402), sixth in offensive rebounds per game (4.69) and seventh in blocks per game (2.5).

Stille led the team in scoring, rebounding and blocks this season, and led the conference in rebounds and blocks per game. Stille placed second in the conference with 15 double-double games on the year.

She earned recognition for her stellar game against RSC opponent Point Park University on Dec. 7 when she pulled down a career- and season-high 32 boards. The effort earned her NAIA DII Player of the Week honors, as she was just four rebounds shy of the NAIA single-game rebounding record of 36, which has been surpassed only twice in NAIA history.

Early on in the season, Stille surpassed 1,000 points and rebounds milestones. She completes her outstanding four-year career at Carlow with 1,324 points and 1,346 rebounds, placing her just second behind the all-time leader Jacqueline Muir who scored 1,483 points (2004-08).

Freshman guard Carly LaZar (Erie, Pa.) was named to the Champions of Character team for the Celtics. The team recognizes those nominated by their head coach who best exhibit the five character values of NAIA Champions of Character, which are respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership and sportsmanship.
