Women's Honors

Big 5 First Team:

  • Pam Balogh (Temple)
  • Kim Foley (St. Joseph’s)
  • Dale Hodges (St. Joseph’s)*
  • Helen Koskinen (Villanova)
  • Kelly Lane (Temple)
  • Tracey Sneed (La Salle)

* Hodges led the Hawks to a 23-win season by averaging 23.4 points a game.

Dale Hodges dominated the Big Five in a way that was unseen previously. In each of her three seasons, her St. Joseph’s Hawks won at least 23 games and she owns the Hawk record book. Hodges holds the standards of most points in a career (2,077), season (855) and a game (42). She averaged 22.1 points a game in her three-year career and scored 40 or more three times. As a senior in 1989-90, she averaged an all-time Big Five-high 27.6 points a game. Not surprisingly she was twice named the player of the year in both the Philadelphia Big Five and the Atlantic 10. The SJU rebound leader with 1,049, Hodgesis the only Hawk to lead the team in scoring, rebounding, steals and blocks in the same season. And she did that twice.
