GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College sophomore Anais Weatherly (Winston-Salem, N.C./Mount Tabor) earned Second Team All-State (College Division) recognition Tuesday from the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA).

The all-star units are comprised of basketball student-athletes from North Carolina’s NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA institutions. The state’s sports information directors nominated student-athletes for the teams, which were selected by NCCSIA members. NCCSIA was founded in 2002 and its first all-state basketball teams were released in 2005.
Weatherly enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign in which she garnered Second Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference recognition. The 5-11 forward led the Quakers in scoring, rebounding and steals with totals that stand among the league’s best. Her scoring average (14.4 ppg.) ranked seventh in the league and rebounding average (8.9 rpg.) stood third. She stood fourth in the conference with 166 field goals and is second with 72 steals, the eighth-best season total in school history. Weatherly was third in the ODAC with 10 double-doubles and won the ODAC’s Player of the Week Award Feb. 23. She scored 18 points in a Feb. 18 road win over Emory & Henry followed by a career-high 32-point showing in Guilford’s Feb. 21 upset of regionally ranked Lynchburg College. Weatherly scored in double figures 21 times and had five games with at least 20 points.
Coach Stephanie Flamini’s Quakers (17-10) earned the fifth seed for the ODAC Tournament and reached the quarterfinals before falling to tourney champion Virginia Wesleyan College. The Quakers could return as many as nine letter winners next fall.
