Liberty sophomore Bridgette Rettstatt (second team all-conference) and senior Tatyana Crowder (all-academic team) each received ASUN Conference year-end awards on Thursday.

During a breakthrough season, Rettstatt ranks fourth in the ASUN in field goal percentage (50.4) and sixth in rebounding (7.1 rpg). The native of Galena, Ohio was named ASUN Player of the Week on Feb. 18.

Rettstatt boosted her production in conference play, pacing the Lady Flames in points (13.4 ppg), rebounds (7.7 rpg), blocked shots (0.9 bpg), steals (1.4 spg) and field goal percentage (51.7). She scored in double figures in 12 of 16 ASUN games, highlighted by three 20-point contests and four double-doubles.

Serving as a team captain for the third straight season, Crowder graduated in May 2018 with a bachelor's degree in social work and a 3.92 GPA. The Roanoke, Va., native is currently working toward a master's degree in public health and maintains a 3.67 GPA during her graduate studies.

On the court, Crowder has appeared in all 29 games for the Lady Flames, starting 12 times. She is averaging a career-best 4.1 ppg and scored the game-winning hoop during the Lady Flames' first-ever ASUN victory, Jan. 15 at Kennesaw State.

Rettstatt and Crowder helped the Lady Flames earn the No. 3 seed for their inaugural ASUN Women's Basketball Championship appearance. Liberty will play host to No. 6 seed Jacksonville in the quarterfinal round, Friday at 7 p.m. inside the Vines Center.
