Cal Poly's Santiago named Honorable Mention All-American

Cal Poly's Kristina Santiago continues to score postseason accolades. Tuesday, the Santa Maria native was named an honorable mention on the Associated Press All-America Team. She becomes the second Mustang to achieve All-America status and the first at the Division I level. Laura Buehning received the honor in 1981.

The two-time Big West Conference Player of the Year finished her women's basketball career as Cal Poly's all-time leader in points (1,953) and rebounds (850) and field goal percentage (.540).

Santiago finished her senior year fifth in the nation in scoring (23.4), sixth in field goal percentage (55.5) and 31st in rebounding (9.9). She was named the conference player of the week five times and led the Big West in all three categories.

The Righetti High graduate will work out in front of WNBA and European professional team scouts in Denver from April 1-3. Santiago is the first Mustang to be invited to the Pro Hoops free agent camp that is held in conjunction with the Women's Final Four.
