One night later, the Lockport graduate added two assists as St. Norbert blanked Marian 4-0.

Through 25 games this season for the Green Knights (17-6-2, 12-5-1), Senne had 20 points, tying her for fourth on the team. Senne is sixth in goals with seven and third in assists with 13.

Best and brightest

Five Southland residents were among the 552 student-athletes in six sports named to the Fall 2013 University Athletic Association All-Academic Team.

To qualify, student-athletes must have completed at least one full year of college study and carry a minimum cumulative 3.300 grade-point average. The 3.300 minimum cumulative GPA is the same academic standard used as a qualifying threshold by the College Sports Information Directors of America for the nomination of Academic All-America candidates in all sports.

Honored were New York University women’s cross country runner Sarah Czuprynski (Sandburg); women’s soccer player Allison McGugan (Marist) of Carnegie Mellon; and football players Dan Cronin (St. Laurence), of Case; Kevin Kosiewicz (Mount Carmel), of Washington (St. Louis); and Kosiewicz’s teammate, Joe Quinlan (Providence).

Singleton, who scored 14 points against Westminster, led Mount Mercy in scoring during the tournament.

Through 20 games (19 starts), Singleton was tied for the team lead in rebounding (6.8 rpg), was second in scoring (15.3 ppg) and tied for third in three-pointers (19).
