Stockbower, Bodur Named All-Centennial


LANCASTER, Pa. - Juniors Kathryn Stockbower and Ceylan Bodur of the Swarthmore College women's basketball team have been named to the All-Centennial team, the conference announced on Tuesday afternoon. Stockbower is a first-team selection while Bodur is honorable mention.

Stockbower makes the first team for the third consecutive season.

With her first team honors, Stockbower (Fort Washington, Pa./Upper Dublin, Pa.) becomes just the ninth player in Conference history to earn first-team All-Centennial honors three times.

Stockbower  - a preseason All-American  - is coming off a tremendous 2009-10 campaign that saw her lead the Centennial Conference in rebounding (13.5 rpg), finish second in scoring (17.7 ppg), third in shooting percentage (51.2) while finishing seventh in the nation in rebounding average . For the 2009-10 season, Stockbower finished with a Centennial Conference-leading 22 double-doubles while scoring in double-figures in all 25 of the Garnet's games. For her career, Stockbower has 64 double-doubles - just 15 shy of the NCAA Division III record - while scoring in double-figures in a Centennial Conference-record 72 consecutive games.

Stockbower also excels in the classroom, as she was  recently named to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America women's basketball third team, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).


The first team Centennial honor is the latest in a long line of achievements for the junior, who was honored as the 2008-09 Centennial Conference Performer of the Year. Stockbower was also named to the 2009 WBCA All-Region team, while compiling four Centennial Conference Player of the Week honors, four ECAC Performer of the Week honors and Team of the Week accolades three times in her career.

Bodur (Istanbul, Turkey/Robert College) is a first-time Centennial honoree. Bodur had a breakout season season for the Garnet, finishing second on the team (12.2 ppg) and eighth in the Centennial in scoring average. Bodur also leads the team in steals per game (1.6) while finishing second on the team in rebounding (5.0 rpg) and assists (2.3 apg). Bodur scored a career-high 30 points against Dickinson in November, while ending the season on a high note with a game-high 25 points against Haverford.
