College Basketball: Former WD Hawk McCarty Reaches Milestone for St. Ambrose Women’s Basketball

By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:

Former West Delaware 3-sport athlete and 2014 Hawks grad Reeann McCarty joined a select group of St. Ambrose Women’s Basketball players Wednesday night. The 5-10 senior guard became the 32nd player in the program’s 42-year history to score 1,000 points, reaching that mark when she scored the 14th of her 18 points by hitting the first of two free throws with 46 seconds remaining in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference contest. The Queen Bees won over Judson in Davenport, 85-76. Afterwards McCarty, told the Quad Cities Times that “Right now, what means the most is winning games and giving ourselves a chance to earn a spot in the conference tournament” She added….”There have been so many good players come through here over the years, and it’s a good honor to be mentioned with them, but as much as anything it’s a relief to have it over with and to just be able to go out and play now.” McCarty is fifth player in coach Krista Van Hauen’s eight seasons to reach the milestone. McCarty is the daughter of Ted and Deb McCarty of Manchester.

St. Ambrose is 8-13 overall right now with a 6-5 conference mark. They’ll return to play back at home Saturday afternoon at 1:00 on Alumni Day as they host Indiana University of South Bend.
