IVCC standout guard and sophomore Julia Pohar of Peru was named to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II All-American third team. She is the first player to hold this honor in the Tom Ptak’s tenure.

Pohar had earlier been named MVP of the Arrowhead Conference. The St. Bede Academy graduate averaged 21.4 points per game, shot 84.5 percent from the free throw line and scored 1,000 points as a Lady Eagle. She also helped lead the team to a co-conference championship and an overall 18-11 record.

“I was very surprised about the selection, there were a lot of very good players nominated so I am very honroed to receive such a prestigious award,” said Pohar.

Recently, Pohar also was named one of 12 Thomas J. McCormack Scholars, IVCC’s highest academic achievement. She will transfer to the University of Iowa to study finance next fall.
