WNBA All-Star Ballot - Vote Here

Former Liberty standout and current center for the WNBA's San Antonio Silver Stars Katie Feenstra is on the official ballot for the WNBA's 10th All-Star Game, to be played on July 12 in New York City (7 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Feenstra left her mark in nearly every category of the Lady Flames' record books during her illustrious career at Liberty. She finished her career in 2005, and left as the all-time career leader in field goals made (764), field goal percentage (.623), rebounds (1,033, 9.5 rpg), offensive rebounds (397), defensive rebounds (636), and blocks (257). The Grand Rapids, Mich., native also finished second in points (1,845).
 
During her time at Liberty, Feenstra led the Lady Flames to four Big South Conference championships, was named to the all-conference first-team three times (2003-05), was named the conference's Player of the Year three times (2003-05), and was also named to the conference's all-tournament team four times (2002-05). Feenstra twice received recognition as the Big South Female Scholar Athlete of the Year (2004-05), the conference's highest honor for a female athlete. In Feenstra's senior season, the Lady Flames advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament after victories over nationally-ranked Penn State and DePaul.
 
During her career, Feenstra also garnered many regional and national accolades. She was named the Virginia State Player of the Year and the Richmond Times Dispatch State Player of the Year in 2004, and was also named to the VaSID first-team three times (2003-05). Feenstra was also named to the Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America team in 2004 and 2005.
 
In the 2005 WNBA Draft, Feenstra was taken in the first round with the eighth overall pick by the Connecticut Sun. The same day, the 6-8 center was traded to the San Antonio Silver Stars, where she was named to the league's all-rookie team after averaging 8.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.29 blocks per game during her first season.
 
This year, Feenstra is averaging 4.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in splitting time at center with Chantelle Anderson. Currently, the upstart Silver Stars are off to a solid 4-2 start and are ranked second in the WNBA's Western Conference. Feenstra presently ranks eighth in the league in rebounds per 40 minutes (8.4), 11th in the league in overall rebounds per 40 minutes (11.9), and 14th in the league in blocks per 40 minutes (1.5).
 
Feenstra appears on the WNBA All-Star ballot in just her second season in the league. You may cast your vote for her as well as other WNBA stars on the league's website, www.wnba.com. Fans may vote once per day.
