Plymouth alum Starr named All-CCAC for 2nd straight year

CHICAGO — Plymouth product and Purdue University Calumet senior Alex Starr earned Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference all-conference honors for the second straight year as the league released its postseason awards Monday.
Starr averaged 16.5 points per game, while recently becoming the fifth player in program history to eclipse the 1,500-point mark. She has totaled 244 3-point field goals in her career and needs just three more treys to set the single-season mark.
Teammate Kami Graber was named to the All-CCAC second team, and Amanda Gaskin and Brooklyn Short were all-conference honorable mention for the Peregrines.
Purdue Calumet claimed its second consecutive 20-win season, finishing 21-9 on its way to its first national ranking since joining the NAIA Div. II. The Peregrines must wait until Wednesday to learn their postseason fate, when the NAIA selection committee announces the national tournament bracket at 7 p.m.
