(Leavenworth, Kan.)—A University of Saint Mary Spires Women’s Basketball player was among the student-athletes honored with designation to one of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference’s (KCAC) All-KCAC lists this week.

Shelby Watson, a senior guard from San Diego, Calif., was named Honorable Mention All-KCAC for her stellar play during the recently completed regular season, as she led the team in both points per game and rebounds per game.

USM’s Head Women’s Basketball Coach Mike Basler said Watson was “very deserving of this honor. She made a major impact on the court and was an inspiration to her teammates.”

Saint Mary has 12 varsity sports programs—football, volleyball, baseball, softball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, cross country, and track & field—along with co-ed cheerleading and dance. Visit to learn more about USM athletics.
