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