Short named Frontier Player of the Week
For the second week in a row, a member of the Lewis-Clark State College women’s basketball team was tabbed as the Frontier Conference’s Player of the Week. This week senior Sadie Short brought home the honor.
Short, a 5-foot-11 forward/guard from Touchet, Wash., earns the award a week after teammate, and fellow senior, Kim Preston received the title.
A third team NAIA Division I All-American last year, Short missed having back-to-back double-doubles by one rebound in LCSC’s two wins last week.
In the Warriors 65-56 victory over Carroll, Short had 10 points and nine rebounds, and in the 69-61 win against Rocky Mountain she had 19 points and 10 rebounds. In the game against Rocky, Short shot 7-for-9 from the fielding including a 3-for-4 mark from 3-point range. Short also passed the ball well as she collected nine assists in the two-game span.
Also nominated for the women’s award were Shannon Evans of Westminster College, Chloe Mosey of Montana Western, Janie Rayback of Rocky Mountain, Samm Schermele and Ashley Stephen of the University of Great Falls.
On the men’s side, Chad Vaculin of Carroll College was the weekly winner. In two games, Vaculin averaged 18 points and five rebounds. He hit 56 percent of his field goalds including 6-of-12 from 3-point land. Vaculin was 11-of-11 from the free throw line. He scored 27 points in Carroll’s win over Westminster. It was the Griffins first home loss this season and ended a 16 game home win streak.
