Winona’s Hoeppner earns all-American honors for UW-EC



A few weeks after being named the WIAC player of the year, Winona native Hallee Hoeppner was named an all-American by D3Hoops.com.

The 5-foot-10 junior guard was named to the fourth team, after leading the WIAC in scoring at 18.3 points for UW-Eau Claire (13-12 overall, 4-10 WIAC). She was third in rebounds (7.8) and second in minutes (36.7) in conference.

Hoeppner shot 48.1 percent from the field and 34.7 percent from beyond the arc (43 of 124) this season.

Hoeppner recorded six double-doubles and two 30-plus-point games, along with being named WIAC Player of Week three times this season.

The 2016 Winona Senior High School graduate scored a conference-high 36 points in an 81-76 loss to UW-Stout. She was 14-for-22 from the field and 2 of 5 from beyond the arc, while adding 12 rebounds and four blocks.

The All-America teams are selected by D3hoops staff in consultation with All-Region voting results from players nominated for All-Region.
