ST. LOUIS – Stephens College guard Makayla Butler and forward Dana Heggemann were named honorable mention All-American Midwest Conference, the league announced following Monday’s championship game between top-ranked Freed-Hardeman University and No. 16 Lyon College.
It marks the first time since 2010-11 that a pair of Stars have earned all-conference honors. That year, upperclassmen Cara Leis and Megan Sheffield both earned All-Conference honorable mention.
Butler paced the Stars in field goal percentage, 3-point field goal percentage and total scoring. With 346 points, the Huntsville, Ark., native tallied the most points by a freshman since Jessica McConnell notched 285 during her rookie campaign in 2009-10.
Heggemann, a co-captain for the Stars, finished the season as the team’s leader in points per game (12.9), rebounds (6.8), blocks (1.5), free throws (113) and free-throw percentage (.796). The Warrenton, Mo., native was among the AMC’s top players in several categories and closed out the year as the league leader in blocks. Heggemann reached double figures in 20 of the 26 games she played in and also recorded five double-doubles.
