Stohr, Niebergall, Fierro, and Voshell earn conference honors
Frontier Conference officials announced the all-conference women’s basketball team and individual award winners on Wednesday and Lewis-Clark State College garnered a number of honors. Jasmine Stohr was named the Frontier Player of the Year, and Brittaney Niebergall was selected as Freshman of the Year.
Along with the individual award, Stohr joined teammates Alyssa Fierro and Kirsi Voshell on the all-conference first-team. Niebergall was a second-team selection.
Stohr (above photo), a 6-foot guard/forward, is leading the conference with 19.4 points per game (nearly three points more the her nearest competition). She also is second in steals per game at 2.4, and third in shooting percentage at 46.4 percent. Despite missing four conference games with a knee injury, the native Yakima, Wash., earned four Frontier Player of the Week awards during the regular season and has scored 544 points to be ranked No. 12 in the nation in total scoring. She ranks No. 6 in the NAIA in points per game and No. 31 in steals per game. Last season, as a junior, she was named conference co-Player of the Year.
Niebergall, a 5-foot-3 guard from Portland, Ore., leads the conference with 2.8 steals per game, and is fourth in assists per game with four. In the nation, she ranks No. 7 in total steals, No. 17 in steals per game, No. 22 in total assists, No. 26 in assists per game, and No. 40 in assist to turnover ratio. She has started 31-of-32 games this year for the Warriors and is averaging 8.1 points per contest.
Voshell, a 6-foot-3 post from Pullman, Wash., leads the conference with 2.4 blocks per game, leads in shooting percentage with a clip of 56.2 percent, and is third in rebounds per game with 8.3. In the nation, the senior ranks No. 4 in total blocks with 76, No. 5 in blocks per game, No. 9 in field goal percentage, and No. 28 in total rebounds. Voshell, who also earned first-team honors as a junior last season, is second on the team with 12.6 points per game.
Fierro, a 6-foot-2 post from Bigfork, Mont., is second in the conference with 9.8 rebounds per game. She ranks No. 10 in the NAIA with 313 total rebounds, No. 15 in defensive rebounds per game, and No. 21 in total rebounds per game. The senior is second on the team in scoring with 9.4 points per contest. Last year she earned second-team all-conference honors.
The Warriors tied with Westminster for most players named to the first-team.
