Wahlin Recognized as NSCA All-American

March 17, 2011

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Junior Kamille Wahlin has been named a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) All-American. The award recognizes student-athletes’ dedication to strength training and conditioning.

“Kamille’s defining trait in the weight room, on the track or during competition is her consistency,” said UI Head Strength and Conditioning Coach JC Moreau. “She has been able to maximize her God-given ability by showing up every day ready to work, improve and help her teammates improve. This has not only allowed Kamille to develop into one of the nation’s top point guards, but has had an immeasurable impact on the progress of those that work with her.”

Wahlin was an honorable mention all-Big ten selection by the league coaches and media this season. She currently ranks fourth in career three-pointers made (165), 11th in career assists (302) and 25th in career scoring (1,076). The Crookston, Minn., native is averaging 12.1 points per game and leads the team with 111 assists. She ranks eighth in the Big Ten in assists per game (3.7) and assist/turnover ratio (1.3) and ninth in three-pointers made per game (1.8)

The NSCA all-America program is in its 32nd year, and is made possible by a grant from Power Systems, Inc., a Knoxville, Tenn., fitness product leader.

Wahlin is the second Hawkeye in as many years to earn NSCA All-American honors. Kachine Alexander received the award last season.

Wahlin and the Hawkeyes are a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and will face No. 11 seed Gonzaga Saturday at 3 p.m. (CT) in Spokane, Wash. The game can be seen regionally on ESPN2 or online at ESPN3.com.
