Mikayla Williams Earns D2CCA All-America First-Team Honors
RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. — University of California San Diego junior forward Mikayla Williams has been named to the Division 2 Conference Commissioner Association All-America First Team, the association announced Monday morning.
The accolade was voted upon by NCAA Division II sports information directors (D2SIDA) from institutions and conference offices.
Williams finished the season averaging a team-high 19.3 points per game, which also led the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) and ranks 24th in the nation. In addition, Williams averaged 10.5 rebounds with 16 double-doubles while shooting a CCAA-best .549 percent from the field and .809 percent from the free-throw line.
A native of Meath Park, Sask., Canada, Williams has already been named D2CCA West Region Player of the Year as well as Google Cloud Academic All-America First Team, CCAA Player of the Year, CCAA Tournament MVP and was named to the CCAA All-Tournament Team. The junior forward also eclipsed 1,000-career points in January and has now scored 1,349 for her career.
Williams led the Tritons to a 30-1 overall record, including a program-best 30-game winning streak to begin the season. UC San Diego was the CCAA regular-season champions for the fourth-straight year, won the CCAA Tournament championship for the second time in program history and advanced to the NCAA West Region Semifinals.
