Taylor Peacocke Named D2CCA All-American

March 21, 2017

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University senior guard Taylor Peacocke has been selected as a 2016-17 Second Team All-American by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association.

Peacocke (Kenmore, WA/Inglemoor) was previously named a D2CCA First Team All-West Region performer. Her list of accolades during her senior season include Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year, three-time GNAC Player of the Week selection and NCAA II West Regional All-Tournament Team member.

Peacocke is the second player in WWU history to be named a D2CCA All-American (formerly Daktronics), joining Britt Harris (Third Team, 2013). She previously became the fifth Viking to earn D2CCA First Team All-West Region honors. She was one of four West Region players to earn All-America accolades from D2CCA for the 2016-17 season.

The leading scorer in NCAA Division II with 23.3 points per game during the 2016-17 season, Peacocke scored 745 points during her senior year. She became the first player in GNAC history to surpass 700 points in a season, setting the WWU single-season scoring record as well.

A two-time First Team All-GNAC selection and three-time All-GNAC Academic Team member, Peacocke concluded her collegiate career six points shy of the GNAC’s all-time scoring record with 1,940 career points to rank second. She also ranks second in WWU scoring history behind Jo Metzger (1,990 points, 1977-1981). Her career scoring average of 16.3 points per game ranks second in WWU history behind Metzger (18.3 points per game).

Peacocke set the GNAC career record for points scored in league games with 1,244 points. She also set the WWU single-season record for free throws made and finished second for attempts in a season (159-for-187, 85.0%) along with setting the WWU single-season scoring average record at 23.3 points per game.

During the 2016-17 season, Peacocke scored 20 or more points in 23 of 32 games with four games of 30 or more points (five in career). Her career-high scoring performance was set at Simon Fraser during an 84-72 WWU victory on Jan. 17 as she scored 41 points to come within a single point of tying the WWU single-game record. The scoring effort was tied for the third-most points in a game in GNAC history.

The Vikings went 26-6 during the 2016-17 campaign, advancing to the GNAC Championships final and the NCAA West Regional semifinal round.

The Division II Conference Commissioners Association encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics and works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities.
