[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he 2015-16 season was one to remember for Ball State women’s basketball and senior forward Nathalie Fontaine.
The Stockholm, Sweden, native set a program career scoring record, with 2,166 points. She eclipsed the old mark of 2,113, set by Tamara Bowie (2000-03), on a last second lay-in against Northern Illinois.
Fontaine also set a new Ball State single-game scoring record with a career high 43 points at Evansville.
End-of-season accolades include 2016 MAC Player of the Year, honorable mention All-America selection by the Associated Press and Ball State’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year.
“I am so happy for Nat,” women’s basketball head coach Brady Sallee said. “This young lady bought into the vision we had for our program and from the moment she arrived on campus has done nothing but deliver.”
Her success helped the Cardinals to their fourth straight postseason appearance and seventh overall. The team stunned Iowa, 77-72, in its WNIT opener before falling 59-55 to Saint Louis in the second round.
