Sophomore Katlyn Mary led the Bluejays in scoring this season, racking up 284 points that includes 40 three-point shots out of 123 attempts.

Fellow sophomore Whitney Polosky, who was injured in the Bluejays? Feb. 17 loss at Friends and sat out the last two games, came in second in scoring with 252 points for the season. She made 24 out of 90 from the three-point line.

Sophomore Tynan Honn, boosted by strong performances later in the season, came in third with 226 points, none of which came from beyond the arc.

Freshman Amy Jo Maphet showed promise for the Bluejays, taking fourth in scoring for the season with 208 points, and making 36 of 95 at the three-point line.
