Poe Lands On Fourth Team D3hoops.com All-America

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. --- Whitman senior Casey Poe has been named D3hoops.com fourth team All-America, the association announced this past weekend. The 21st annual 2018 D3hoops.com All-America team was selected by D3hoops.com staff from nominees for D3hoops.com All-Region. 

Poe began the 2017-18 season earning D3hoops preseason honorable mention all-American. She then was tabbed a Women's Basketball Coaches of America honorable mention, after garnering first-team D3hoops All-West Region honors.

Within the Northwest Conference, she was voted the league's player of the year in 2018 and was named a first-team all-conference performer for the second consecutive season.

Midway through her senior season Poe earned the U.S. Basketball Writers Association D-III women's national player of the week award following a weekend in which she scored a career-best 29 points in a 77-71 victory over 27th-ranked George Fox University, and 21 points in a triumph over Whitworth University.

Poe surpassed 1,000 points for a career during the 2017-18 schedule and finishes her career with 1,145 points, eighth on Whitman's all-time scoring list.
