Chautauqua Lake High School graduate Jenna Einink is on the 2015-16 SUNYAC Women's Basketball All-Conference Team and is Rookie of the Year.

Einink, who plays for the Fredonia Blue Devils, was chosen as the top first-year player in a vote of the 10 conference coaches. She was also selected Third Team All-Conference while senior forward Sabrina Macaulay and junior guard Alexis Cheatham made Second Team.

It's the first time Fredonia has had three All-Conference selections in the same season.

Einink appeared in all 27 games as a freshman, making two starts, and averaged 11.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. She also led the Blue Devils with 54 blocked shots, a new single-season Fredonia record and fourth best in the SUNYAC. She was also 11th in scoring and 12th in rebounding. Einink is only the second Fredonia player to receive SUNYAC's Rookie of the Year award in women's basketball. Cheatham was the first in 2013-14.

A repeat All-Conference selection, Macaulay led Fredonia with 16.1 points and 8.7 rebounds per game - fourth and sixth, respectively, among SUNYAC players. Her 57.5 percent field-goal shooting led the conference and set a single-season new school record. Macaulay became the ninth Fredonia player to reach the 1,000-point plateau and finished with 1,010 points.

Cheatham averaged 12.6 points and dished out 3.4 assists per game this season, eighth and fourth, respectively, in the SUNYAC. A long-range shooting specialist, the junior point guard made a single-season school-record 69 three-pointers on 207 attempts - also a school record. She also became the school-record holder for career treys - 169 - with one season remaining.
