Viterbo's Engh earns All-American honor

Posted: Updated:
Viterbo University senior Jenna Engh was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics this week.

Engh averaged 20.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game this season for the V-Hawks. She is the eighth women's basketball player in Viterbo history to earn an All-American mention and the first since Anne Wilson was recognized during the 2005-06 season. She was also named to the All-Midwest Collegiate Conference team two weeks ago.

Engh ranks fifth all-time in Viterbo scoring history with 1,697 points. She led the V-Hawks in scoring the last three seasons and the Midwest Collegiate Conference the past two.

"Over the last four years, if I heard a ball bouncing in the gym, I could bet it would be Jenna working on her game," head coach Bobbi Vandenberg said in a release. "I would be accurate to say that Jenna is a 'gym rat,' but she has been so much more than that to our program. She has set a great example for work ethic and time spent outside of practice perfecting her skills and basketball strength and conditioning. Without a doubt, she has been the most exciting player to watch in our conference over the two years as she has found countless ways to score."

Engh and the V-Hawks finishes last season 8-23 overall, 4-8 in MCC play.
