First-Year Bailey Donovan Recognized as the 2019-20 NCAA DIII Women's Basketball Statistical Champion for Field Goal Percentage

BANGOR, Maine - Following an unprecedented rookie season in 2019-20, Husson women's basketball standout Bailey Donovan was recognized by the NCAA as the statistical champion of Field Goal Percentage, out of all Division III women's basketball players. She concluded 28 competitions with a 64.50 percentage (162-251) which was 0.8% higher than the closest DIII player in the statistical category.   

"This is an outstanding award for Bailey, especially as a first-year player," comments a very proud Head Coach Kissy Walker. "We asked a lot of Bailey in her first season and we are extremely happy with how well she responded."

Donovan's impressive accuracy within the key helped her accomplish countless awards and recognitions throughout the season while leading her conference in nearly all offensive categories. Not only an offensive threat, the 6-3 center concluded her breakout rookie season with 12 double-doubles and a total of 406 points and 287 rebounds by the end of the year. The 2020 North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Rookie of the Year now holds the new Husson women's basketball single-season program record for field goal percentage.
