Peterson_Laci___SeniorWATERTOWN, WI – Senior women’s basketball player Laci Peterson couldn’t have planned it any better.

In her final game, she pieced together a staggering 16 points, 14 rebounds, 12 blocks and 10 assists, her first quadruple-double, en route to her second National Championship in three seasons, and has subsequently been named the NCCAA DII Student-Athlete of the Week.

The 2014 AD3I First Team Recipient capped an illustrious career that included a top-three ranking in the NCAA DIII, in blocks per game for each season, First-Team honors in the NACC (Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference), and 2013 NACC Defensive Player of the Year. She was selected to the 2014 NCCAA Second Team All-American squad, after leading her team to a 77-69 win over Arlington Baptist, this past Saturday.

She also finishes 11th in school history in total points (1,032), but achieved the milestone in the second-fewest games (82), among the top-11 individuals. Peterson also averaged the third most rebounds a game (8.1), behind Colleen Goff (9.4, ’04-08), and Angie Smith (8.4, ’03-05), and finished first place in blocked shots, with 388 total. Goff was second on the list in blocks, with 122 in four seasons.
