Cameron Named GLIAC Coach of the Year; Four Players Honored

by Wes Frahm, director of athletic communications and marketing

The women's basketball head coach Kim Cameron was named GLIAC Coach of the Year as the league handed out its annual awards at a banquet last week for the four teams left in the GLIAC Tournament. In addition to Cameron, four players earned recognition from the conference on All-GLIAC teams.

Lucy Dernovsek (Holcombe, Wis./Lake Holcombe) earned All-GLIAC North Division First Team accolades. Lisa Staehlin (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrew) and Sam Hoyt (Arkansaw, Wis./Durand) were named to the All-GLIAC North Division Second Team. Staehlin and Lindsey Lindstrom (Superior, Wis.) garnered GLIAC North Division All-Defensive Team accolades.

Cameron has coached the Huskies to a 24-2 record, a No. 5 national ranking and a No. 1 regional ranking in her first season at the helm of the program. The Alpena native took over an inexperienced group of players that had started just 12 games between them and led the group to the program's fourth straight GLIAC North Division title and 11 GLIAC crowns overall. Tech compiled an 18-1 GLIAC record, tying the school record for fewest league losses.

Dernovsek leads the Huskies in scoring (11.9 points per game) and rebounding (8.3 per game). One of the best all-around players in the league, Dernovsek ranks among the GLIAC leaders in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage, 3-point percentage, assists and blocks.

Staehlin averages 11.5 points and 5.0 rebounds for the Huskies. She has four 20-point games this season and ranks second in the GLIAC in field goal shooting at 59.5 percent.

Hoyt averages 11.0 points and 3.4 assists per game on the year. She leads the league in 3-pointers made at 60 and was also seventh in percentage at 42.6.

Lindstrom has guarded opponent's top player all season and is a big reason the Huskies lead the league in both scoring defense (53.5) and field goal percentage defense (34.3). The 6-0 forward also averages 8.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per contest.

The men's basketball players Ali Haidar (Windsor, Ont./Forster) and Mike Hojnacki (Milwaukee, Wis./Eisenhower) were named to All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference teams at the GLIAC Final Four banquet last week on Ferris State's campus.

Haidar was named All-GLIAC North Division First Team after averaging team highs of 15.7 points and 6.6 rebounds. The 6-7 sophomore forward owns the league's third highest field goal percentage at 60.1 and is sixth in scoring. Haidar posted eight 20 points games and four double-doubles on the season.

Hojnacki earned a spot on the All-GLIAC North Division Second Team for the second straight season. The 6-7 forward averages 15.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting 53.0 percent from the field. The junior also ranks among the league leaders in free throw percentage (77.5) and 3-point percentage (40.7).
