Umpqua's Stotler Establishes New Blocks Record
March 7, 2017
VANCOUVER,WA -- Umpqua's Jordan Stotler broke the NWAC women's modern day record* for blocks two weeks ago against Clackamas when she recorded her 111th blocked shot of the season.
The record surpassed the 110 recorded in 2009 by Clackamas standout Rylee Peterson.
The 6' 4" forward out of Roseburg High school then torched Chemeketa for a season high 11 blocks, bringing her season total to 123.
This was the second time Stotler recorded double digits in blocks. Her 11 blocks was one shy of the single game record of 12 by Grays Harbor's Brittany McKinney (2009).
Her 4.39 blocks per game average is the highest on record so far, cruising past Clackamas' Peterson who had an average of 3.67 in 2009.
Stotler is already well on her way to the career record - she is only 66 blocks shy of Peterson's 2009-2010 total of 189.
The four time NWAC Under Armour Player of The Week selection will have another shot at adding to her season total when the top-ranked Riverhawks line up against Treasure Valley on March 11 at 10am.
