ASUN Beam Video Series: McKenna Beach - Stetson

LakePoint, Ga. - In the first ASUN Beam Video Series, the conference features student-athletes across the ASUN that have made an Impact in the classroom, in competition and in the community. Throughout the spring, the ASUN will feature two student-athletes from each institution that epitomize the conference's beam of Impact.

Stetson's McKenna Beach has impacted the Hatters' Women's Basketball program through her leadership and contributions on the court despite suffering two major knee injuries prior to her time in DeLand.



Beach started at Stetson in the Fall of 2015 as an under-appreciated recruit after tearing her ACL on two occasions, but vaulted herself onto the scene in DeLand by earning ASUN Freshman of the Year honors after averaging 7.4 PPG in league play to go along with 3.2 RPG & 2.5 SPG. The Hatters finished 20-12 in her freshman season, which included a trip and victory in the WBI Postseason Tournament. The following season, Beach and the Hatters propelled themselves to the program's first-ever ASUN Regular Season title with a 13-1 record in conference action and a trip to the WNIT for Stetson's seventh-straight year in a postseason tournament.

Off the court, the Cape Coral, Fla. native earned a spot on the ASUN All-Academic Team with a 3.52 cumulative GPA. Beach, an Integrative Health Science major, has a desire to assist others in the same way she was helped following her knee surgeries in high school. A member of the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society, Beach is also enrolled in Stetson's Athletic Department Leadership Academy. Beach, a captain for the Women's Basketball team, has actively volunteered in the local community at the Starke Elementary School.
