LANCASTER, PA – For the first time since the 2014-15 season, the Johns Hopkins women’s basketball team placed two players on the All-Centennial team as the league released the teams today. Junior Sophia Way was named to the second team while fellow junior Lillian Scott was named honorable mention. Sophomore Kenz Wilkinson was also named to the All-Sportsmanship team.

The Blue Jays had a successful season under first-year head coach Katherine Bixby going 17-10 and 15-5 in league play. JHU made it to the semifinals where they fell to eventual champion Gettysburg. Hopkins played one of the toughest schedules in Division III as its schedule featured five teams that will be playing in the NCAA Tournament including Centennial foes Gettysburg and Haverford.

Way played in 25 games this season making 23 starts. Her 13.3 points per game ranked second on the team while her 38.4 shooting percentage from deep led the team and ranked fifth in the conference. It also the 14th best shooting percentage from beyond the arc in a single-season in program history. For the year, Way hit 43 three-pointers which is 10th best in a single-season in Hopkins history and amassed 333 total points. She also averaged 3.8 rebounds per game, pulling down a total of 96 rebounds.

Scott, who was on the second team last season, led the Blue Jays with 14.1 points per game as the junior guard started all 27 games this season for JHU. She ranked eighth in the conference in both points per game and assists per game (2.6) and also averaged 1.4 steals per game. Scott scored in double-figures in 21 out of the 27 JHU games this year with her season-high of 28 points coming on the road against Ursinus. Scott played 904 minutes this season which is the 15th most in a single-season in Hopkins history. She also scored 382 points this year and had 17 blocks and 37 steals.
