Atlanta, Ga. -- Lynchburg College senior Caroline Naumann was named to the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's honorable mention All-America list, the organization announced Friday.

The forward from Mechanicsville, Va., was one of the most prolific scorers and rebounders in program history. Her 1,154 career points rank seventh in LC lore, and her 793 rebounds rank fifth. Naumann is also top five in career free throws made and attempted.

She becomes the second All-American in Lynchburg women's basketball history, following in the footsteps of Betty Jackson, who earned the honor as a senior in 1983.

In her senior campaign, Naumann led the Hornets to their third-straight 20-win season, averaging 15.5 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game, both of which ranked tops on the team. She was third in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference in rebounding, earning a first-team All-ODAC nod and paving the way for Lynchburg to place a program-best four players on the all-conference teams. She also tied the program's single-game scoring (35) and free throw (15) marks in her senior season.

Naumann was second-team All-ODAC as a junior and was the ODAC Tournament Most Outstanding Player when Lynchburg won its first-ever conference championship in women's basketball. She played key roles in the Hornets' first-ever NCAA Division III Tournament appearance and, a year later, their first win in the Big Dance. Lynchburg's teams were 86-27 in Naumann's four seasons, making her part of the winningest class in program history.

The WBCA honors 10 All-Americans and gives 30 honorable mention nods on its annual best-of-the-best team. Bowdoin's Kate Kerrigan won the WBCA's player of the year award.
