The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and Kodak released its 2006-07 Division III All-America Team on Friday afternoon and Gustavus junior guard Jess Vadnais was named to the 10-player All-America team, while Bri Monahan received honorable mention honors for the second consecutive year.

Vadnais, a Hudson, Wis. native, was the 2006-07 MIAC Player of the Year. She led the conference in scoring with an average of 18.9 points per game and she broke the school record for points in a season with 523 points. She also shattered the school record for free throws made in a season with 169 (the previous mark was 103) and she tied the record for three-point field goals made with 62. Vadnais is the second Gustavus player to be named to the WBCA/Kodak All-America team following Angie Peterson who was honored in 2003-04.

Monahan, a Hutchinson, Minn. native, was one of ten finalists for the 2006-07 Josten’s Division III Player of the Year Award. She graduated as the program’s all-time leading scorer with 1,466 points and finished her career ranked in the top ten in eight different statistical categories. Monahan was a two-time all-conference performer and a two-time WBCA/Kodak honorable mention All-America honoree.

Monahan and Vadnais were key parts of a Gustavus team that posted a 22-6 record and participated in the NCAA Tournament.
