The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has named Waubonsee Community College's Katie Beebe the Division II Women's Basketball Player of the Week for November 18-24 (Week 3). The award is the second such honor for Beebe, who took home the same recognition in Week 5 of her freshman season last year, and the first for the Chiefs in 2019-20.
Beebe, a 6'0" sophomore forward/center, averaged a remarkable triple-double over three games during that stretch, putting up 16.7 points, 21.3 rebounds, and 10.0 blocks. The Oswego, Illinois, native set a school-record with 13 blocked shots, to go along with 12 points and 18 rebounds, in a 98-55 loss at #6 Rock Valley College. Against Madison College, she helped the Chiefs to a 63-44 win with 12 points, a school-record 25 rebounds, and ten blocked shots. Beebe concluded the week with a season-high 26 points, 21 rebounds, and seven blocks in an 82-43 defeat of the College of DuPage. For the week, she amassed 50 points, 64 boards, and 30 rejections.
Beebe currently ranks first in the nation with 152 rebounds, a 19.0 rebounds per game average, and 56 blocked shots, while also averaging 18.9 points. Waubonsee Community College is currently 5-3 on the year.
