Towry chosen female athlete of year

Former South Medford basketball standout Kylie Towry added another school scoring record to her resume — this time in college — and as a result was recently named Willamette University’s female athlete of the year.

Towry received the honor in a ceremony May 1 in Salem, where the school is located.

The guard finished her Bearcat career with a record 1,433 points and was named to the all-Northwest Conference first-team as a senior.

She had been a second-team selection in 2016 and received honorable mention in 2017.

In addition to setting the scoring record, Towry tops Willamette career lists with 1,179 field goal attempts, 293 3-point field goals made and 750 3-pointers attempted.

She is second all-time with 474 field goals made and 79.3-percent shooting on free throws (101 of 125).

Towry is third in career scoring average with 13.0 points per game and is tied for third with a 39.1-percent 3-point shooting mark.

This past season, Towry set the school single-season scoring mark with 479 points and led the NWC with 17.4 points per game. She reached double figures in 25 of 27 games, including 20 or more points 11 times. Her 33 points in a game against Pacific are No. 2 in the record book. And her 74 3-pointers this season are a Willamette season record and led the NWC.

Towry was also a finalist for awards for women’s moment of the year and women’s individual performance of the year.

Towry owns the South Medford record for points in a career (1,813) and in a season (553).
