Maryah Sydnor of the Appalachian State University womens' basketball team capped off her successful junior campaign with another accolade as she was named NCCSIA First Team All-State by the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association on Wednesday.
Sydnor, a first team All-Southern Conference selection, was also the SoCon's leading scorer with a 19.4 points-per-game average, and she was second in the league in rebounding with an 8.7 per-game average.
She also led the SoCon in free throw percentage (87.2), she was fifth in steals per game (1.6). Sydnor was 22nd nationally in free throw percentage, and 31st in double-doubles after recording 15 on the season.
Sydnor posted at least 10 points in 28 of the 29 games played this season and recorded at least 20 points in 16 games. Earlier this season, she also became the 23rd player in Appalachian history to score 1,000 points in their career, hitting the milestone on on Dec. 16 in her hometown of Radford, Va.
She had another record-breaking day against Davidson on Jan. 26, scoring 36 points and grabbing 15 rebounds to lead the Mountaineers over the Wildcats, 74-66.
Sydnor was named SoCon Player of the Week once, SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week twice and earned SoCon Player of the Month honors during January and February.
