FC honors Stohr, Reiter, Voshell, and Fierro
Junior Jasmine Stohr, who leads the Frontier Conference in both scoring and steals, was named the conference’s women’s basketball co-Player of the Year, while teammate Kenna Reiter was named the Defensive Player of the Year, conference officials announced on Monday night.
As well as the individual awards, Stohr and Reiter also joined teammate Kirsi Voshell on the all-conference first team, while junior Alyssa Fierro was a second-team selection.
Stohr, a 6-foot guard/forward earned first-team all-conference honors for the third straight season. She earned the conference’s Player of the Week award this season, the second year in a row that she’s accomplished that feat, and also was named MVP of both the Twin Rivers Physical Therapy Classic and the Warrior Invitational.
Stohr downplayed the award and gave credit to her teammates.
“It’s not just one person out there,” Stohr said. “Basketball is a team sport and our team is a good one.”
Despite facing a number of gimmick defenses, including box-and-1s, in an attempt by opponents to slow her down, Stohr takes a conference-leading 18.4 scoring average into the national tournament. Because postseason statistics count in the overall statistics, Stohr will easily winning the scoring title with the most points scored, but needs to keep her average above 18 points per game to win the average points per game scoring title as well.
Her overall points total ranks 11th in the NAIA and her scoring average is 12th. She finished in double figures scoring in every game but one this season, which snapped a 32-consecutive game streak of scoring at least 10 points.
Stohr also leads the conference in steals with 89, which ranks 13th nationally. She’s averaged 2.8 steals per game, which ranks 20th nationally as well. She is also currently averaging 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists, while shooting 45 percent from the field and 76.1 percent at the foul line.
Stohr’s season has her listed in numerous spots in the LCSC record book. Her point total is currently the fifth-best in single-season history and she’s now 10th in most field goals in a season. After making 11 free throws in Monday night’s 65-47 conference championship win over Carroll, Stohr now has a single-season best 150 free throws made this season. She’s also in the top eight for steals in a season.
Stohr has scored 589 points this season, the fifth highest by a Warrior. Next on the list is Aundrea Morrison with 606.
Stohr shares the conference’s Player of the Year award with Montana Tech senior Taesha Higbee, who averaged 15.3 points per game this season.
Reiter, 5-8 senior point guard, also had an outstanding season and regularly was assigned the opponent’s top guard. LCSC regularly plays man defense. Her quickness and tenacity helped her shut down opponents. She is second in the league in steals with 76 behind Stohr.
Along with her defense, Reiter was again one of the guards in the league and leads the conference in both assists and assists per game. She set a person best with 13 assists earlier this season, which is tied her for the second-highest single-game total in LCSC history and also had a career-best 22 points.
Reiter, who was a second-team selection a year ago, is averaging 8.6 points, 4.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game. She currently is No. 9 on the single-season assist list with 144.
Stohr said Reiter is very deserving of the honor.
“Kenna deserves that award because she’s such an awesome player,” Stohr said. “She’s really grown into the point guard and she’s the best point guard I’ve ever played with. She’s just unbelievable out there.”
Voshell, a 6-3 junior post from Pullman, Wash., also is having a huge season. She is battling Fierro for the top spot on the team and in the conference for rebounding and blocked shots. Voshell is averaging 12.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. She has 282 rebounds this season, one more than Fierro. That leaves Voshell tied for seventh on the single-season rebound list, while Fierro is ninth. Voshell needs just three rebounds to move into the fourth spot on the program’s all-time rebounding list, while Fierro needs three to move into the No. 2 spot.
Voshell also has 59 blocked shots this season, which trails only Fierro’s 62 in the conference. Voshell set the LCSC single-season mark with 64 blocks last season. Fierro and Voshell also stand 1-2 on the school’s all-time blocked shot list.
Voshell is shooting a team-best 54.8 percent from the field and also has 24 steals this season.
Fierro, a 6-2 junior from Bigfork, Mont., is averaging 9.6 points per game
A year ago, Voshell was a second-team all-conference pick while Fierro was a first-team selection.
