Katie Healy named Bona's woman of the year

Katie Healy has been selected as St. Bonaventure's NCAA Woman of the Year nominee, the school announced. Now in its 26th year, the Woman of the Year award honors graduating female college athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in academics, athletics, service and leadership.

Healy, a Lancaster High School graduate, finished one of the best careers in Bonaventure women's basketball history after leading the Bonnies to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. She was named firstteam All-Atlantic 10, her second first team honor and third all-conference selection overall, by scoring 15.3 points with 6.8 rebounds per game. Healy finished the regular season as the only player in the Atlantic 10 to rank among the conference's top 15 in scoring, rebounding, blocks, field goal percentage and assists per game.

She is one of the all-time greats in Bona history, finishing her career as one of just two players in program history with over 1,600 points and 800 rebounds. Healy ranks fourth in Bona career scoring (1,708 points), third in rebounds (833), first in blocks (155), fourth in made field goals (624) and free throws (453), fourth in double-figure performances (88) and tied seventh in field goal percentage (46.8 percent).

Also a standout in the classroom, she was selected to the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District Team this year with a 3.46 cumulative GPA and also began her Masters of Business Administration while concurrently completing her undergraduate degree in marketing.
