CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Sophomore Mercedes Jones (Dayton, Ohio/Ponitz Career Technolgy Center) and sophomore Kaylee Shockley (Uniontown, Ohio/Lake) were named All-North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC), the league announced Wednesday.
Jones was named Second Team All-NCAC and Shockley earned a Honorable Mention All-NCAC selection. Both players earn their first All-NCAC honor of their respective careers.
Jones, who named NCAC Newcomer of the Year last season, posted a breakout campaign for the Terriers in 2015-16.
She led the team in scoring (15.3 ppg), shooting percentage (.445) and was second on the team in rebounding (6.7 rpg). Jones also finished the season with a team-high five double-doubles.
Shockley put together a solid second for the Terriers, taking on an increased role.
She averaged 10.8 ppg, which was third on the team and recorded 65 steals. Her 65 steals led the team and was ninth most in single season program history.
Under second year head coach Emily Hays, Hiram tied the program record with 12 victories. In addition, the Terriers win six NCAC games, the most since the program joined the conference in the 1999-00 season.
