College briefs: Bertrand earns first team honors; Vote for Lubsey

BLUEFIELD —  Concord women’s basketball junior Andrea Bertrand has been selected for All-Mountain East Conference first team honors. Bertrand set personnel bests in numerous categories this season, while averaging 18.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Bertrand tallied six double-doubles and nine games with at least 20 points scored, while becoming the 15th player in school history to break the 1,000 career-point threshold.
