WAYNE – As the Wayne State women saw their final non-conference game Tuesday evening get postponed, an individual has earned the NSIC South Division Player of the Week honor.

Junior Erin Norling is coming off a career-best weekend after averaging 30 points and 10.5 rebounds during two road wins for WSC. The Loretto, MN native was 24-43 (55.8%) from the field and 4-8 from behind the arc.

The 5’11 forward leads in the league in scoring (23.4 ppg) and sixth in rebounding (8.0 rpg).

The NSIC North Division Player of the Week went to senior guard Madeline Dammann from St. Cloud State.

The Wildcat women are 4-1 overall and have won three straight games.
