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
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
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
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.

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
