Stef Collins inducted into St Bonaventure Hall of Fame

Stef Collins, Great Britain's most capped senior player, Olympian, former Archer Captain and our very own WBBL Head Coach has been inducted into the St Bonaventure Hall of Fame. Stef joins her alma mater in New York State on Saturday June 8th to mark this occasion.

Stef joined the Bonnies in 2001 and made an immediate splash on campus when she averaged over 11 points per contest as a freshman to be crowned Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year. As a sophomore, she ranked third nationally in three-point percentage (.466) while averaging 16 points per game. She was not only her team's top scorer but also its best defender and main ballhandler. After the season, she was on the Atlantic 10 All-Conference teams, a spot she would claim again the following year when she posted nearly 14 points per game.

Today, her name is seen throughout the program record books. Collins stands 12th in career scoring (1,421 points), third in total 3-pointers (288), seventh in free throw percentage (.815), 10th in steals (148), and her 73 games of double-figure scoring is ninth-most in Bona's history. She also ranks seventh, 10th, 11th and 15thin the ranks for single-season 3-pointers made. Her 36-point performance in a 2003 game at Stony Brook also is tied for third in school history.

Fast forward to the current day and Stef has achieved so much, not only as a player but also a coach at national team level. Stef has been a part of the Great Britain Women's national team coaching staff and also obtained a Silver medal at the Commonwealth games in 2022 where she lead the England 3X3 women. Stef is a fantastic role model and advocate for the sport and we are so very fortunate that she has made Wales her home.

Huge congratulations to Stef on this accolade, we are so very proud of you.
