Rachel Carmody earned second-team All-MAC Freedom honors in her recently completed sophomore season at Misericordia University.
The Western Wayne and JB Hoops graduate is a 5-foot-10 guard/forward for the Cougars, who she helped to 19 wins and a trip to the second round of the ECAC Tournament.
Carmody has ranked second on Misericordia’s team in both scoring and rebounding in each of her first two college seasons.
As a sophomore, Carmody started all 28 games, averaging 27.8 minutes per game. She contributed 12.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.6 blocked shots per game. She shot 41.0 percent from the floor, 27.9 percent on 3-pointers and 59.4 percent from the line.
Carmody had a career-high 24 points Feb. 11 in a 69-39 rout of Wilkes University as part of a strong finish to the season. She scored in double figures in the last nine games of the regular season, including three double-doubles in that stretch. She also had 14 rebounds in a game on three occasions.
After Misericordia lost to DeSales in double overtime in the first round of the MAC Freedom Tournament, it was awarded a spot in the ECAC Tournament, which features the best of the eastern schools that fall short of the NCAA Tournament.
