AMHERST, Mass. – As the Amherst College women's basketball team captured their second consecutive NCAA Division 3 National Championship, sophomore guard Hannah Fox and Head Coach G.P. Gromacki were recognized as All-Americans by D3Hoops.com.
Gromacki was named the D3hoops.com Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season, while Fox was picked as a member of the Fourth Team just before she earned a spot on the Final Four All-Tournament team for her efforts in Rochester, Minnesota.
Fox ended a stellar sophomore season averaging 11.3 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, both second on the team. She shot 40.4% from the floor and 35.0% from behind the three-point line while starting at point guard in all 33 games that Amherst played and won this year.
Saving her best play for the NCAA tournament, Fox averaged 12.33 points per game in the six tournament games. She scored 12 points, grabbed seven rebounds, dished out three assists and had two steals in the National Championship game against Bowdoin, and was named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team.
Gromacki, in his 11th year with the Mammoths, has now won three national championships and has made eight Final Four appearances at Amherst. His career record here of 328-24 includes a program-record 66 game active winning streak and 11 straight 20-victory seasons and NCAA Tournament appearances. The head coach has an all-time NCAA tournament record of 45-11 with Amherst and 53-17 including his time at Hamilton and St. Lawrence.
Gromacki's 17-year career winning percentage of .888 (491-62) makes him the winningest coach all-time in women's basketball history (minimum of ten years coaching), and he is second all-time in just Division III (minimum of five years).
