Senior Katie Holloway was named to the All-Big West Second Team, the Big West Conference announced Monday morning. In her final season in a Northridge uniform, Holloway posted career bests in points-per-game (14.5), rebounds-per-game (7.2) and blocks (36).

"It is an honor to receive this recognition in my senior season," Holloway said. "I have tremendous respect for the other coaches and teams in the conference. I am grateful for the honor, but I also realize I could not have done any of it without my teammates."

A native of Lake Stevens, Wash., Holloway concluded her career with a 26-point performance at Cal Poly on Mar. 8. Two days earlier, Holloway set new career highs with 29 points and 14 rebounds against UC Santa Barbara. Upon receiving her fifth foul against the Gauchos, Holloway received a standing ovation from those in attendance at the Thunderdome.

In league play this season, Holloway's numbers improved, jumping to 16.3 ppg and 6.9 rpg while shooting 59.5 percent from the field. At the end of the regular season in the Big West Conference, she was the league's top field goal shooter and third-leading scorer.

Having appeared in 104 career games, 84 of which were starts, Holloway departs Northridge as a four-year letterwinner under head coach Staci Schulz and in several all-time top 10 categories in school history.

"I think this is a great way to cap Katie's outstanding career at Northridge," Schulz said. "She is deserving of this recognition and so much more for her work on the court, in the classroom and throughout the community."

She ends her career with a 53.2 career field goal percentage, which ranks second in school history. Her 480 free throw attempts also rank second in school history, while her 296 free throws check in at third in school history. She also had 110 career blocks, also the second-most in school history, and 546 career rebounds, which ranks sixth in school history.

Holloway has received recognition at the conference level before, having been named to the All-Big West Freshman team and she was a two-time Big West Sixth Woman of the Year.
