SHERMAN, Texas – Austin College women’s basketball player Bryce Frank has been selected as a 1st Team All-South Region performer after a stellar season in which she was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year and guided the ‘Roos to a 20-6 overall record.
Frank, a junior forward from Granbury, tied with Trinity’s Micah Weaver for SCAC Player of the Year honors and was named 1st Team All-SCAC after putting together one of the best single seasons in program history.
