PHILADELPHIA - Holy Family University forward Catherine Carr
(jr. Bedminster, N.J./Bernards) became the first ever women's
basketball player to receive the Sam Cozen Player of the Week award
at the Philadelphia Small College Coaches Association on Tuesday
"It's a great honor for me to be the first female to receive this award," said Carr. "The luncheon was really nice and it was good to hear all the coaches speak about their teams and their players."
The Sam Cozen Player of the Week award has been given out to men's basketball players at the Division II and III level at Philadelphia Small College Coaches Association luncheons for over 20 years.
"It's a great thing that the Association acknowledges women's basketball players and to promote and get them more notoriety in the area," said Holy Family women's basketball head coach Mark Miller. "I can't imagine a better player and person to be the first women honored than Catherine. It's a tremendous honor and a reflection on Holy Family and the women's basketball program."
Through four games, Carr is averaging 23.8 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. She is leading the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) in scoring and is 16th in rebounding. In the season opener against Bentley, Carr scored her 1,000th career point. She was tabbed as the CACC player of the week on November 30.
