  • Eureka College senior guard Caty Eeten (Eureka/Eureka H.S.) and junior forward Kelsey Shoemake (East Peoria/East Peoria H.S.) have each been named to the All-St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Team, according to an announcement from SLIAC Commissioner Will Wolper, Friday at the conference tournament in Louisville, Ky. 
    Eeten repeated on the First Team, while Shoemake earned her second straight Second Team honor.
    Eeten’s selection marks her fourth straight All-SLIAC nod, including her third consecutive First Team honor. 
    She closed her final regular season as the league’s leading scorer with 19.3 points per game. Eeten, who was the 2012 SLIAC Player of the Year as a sophomore, led the conference with 153 field goals, 163 free throws and an 86.7 percentage at the foul line. 
    She also ranked among the conference leaders with 75 assists (third), 7.8 rebounds per game (eighth) and 24 blocked shots (ninth). She played all 25 games in 2013-14 and played a team-high 834 minutes.
    Eeten entered Friday’s SLIAC Tournament with 483 points this season, fourth-most in single-season Eureka history and 111 points shy of her own school record of 594 set as a sophomore in 2011-12. 
    Her 163 free throws are third-most in a season by a Red Devil. She owns the top three single-season free throw totals (190, 164, 163) in program history. 
    Additionally, Eeten’s 2013-14 free throw percentage of .867 (163-for-188) is .003 behind Jessica Reardon’s .870 mark in 2003-04 as the most accurate free throw shooting season in school history.
    Shoemake, who was also on the All-SLIAC Second Team last season as a sophomore, led the 10-team SLIAC through the conclusion of the regular season with 10.4 rebounds per game. 
    Her 15.7 points per game were fifth-most among league players, making her one of only three SLIAC players to average a double-double. 
    Shoemake’s 141 field goals and 82.7 free throw percentage each ranked second among players, trailing only Eeten. Shoemake also finished the regular season third among league players with a 50.4 field goal percentage and fourth with 38 blocked shots.
    In addition to Eeten and Shoemake’s selections, Eureka junior guard Taylor Muehlich (Tremont/Tremont H.S.) was the Red Devils’ representative on the SLIAC All-Sportsmanship Team. 
    Muehlich appeared in 15 games off the bench for EC this season, compiling 18 points and 26 rebounds in 89 minutes of action.
    Karla Vietinghoff, a junior guard from league newcomer Iowa Wesleyan, was named SLIAC Player of the Year. Spalding’s Charlie Just was the SLIAC Coach of the Year, while Principia freshman Rachel Perea was chosen as the SLIAC Newcomer of the Year.
