Lewis-Clark State College senior guard Annie Kane was named a first team All-Frontier Conference performer for the 2012-13 season on Tuesday.
Kane, a native of Lapwai, Idaho, joined Torrie Cahill and Megan Patterson from Carroll, Sammi Bignell from Montana Western and Cydney Tibbitts and Nicole Yazzie from Westminster on the All-Conference first team, announced by commissioner Kent Paulson after balloting by league coaches.
Kane, the lone senior on the LCSC roster this season, had a career year in her final collegiate campaign, finishing with an average of 14.3 points per game, good enough to fourth in the Frontier Conference and tops on the Warrior roster.
She scored 16.8 points per game against Frontier Conference opponents, the best mark in the league, and had 24 points on 8-for-16 shooting against Carroll in her final collegiate contest.
Her field goal percentage of 43.3 percent was tops in the Frontier among perimeter players and third overall. It also placed her in the top 50 in NAIA Division I for scoring efficiency.
Kane accomplished all this while playing 33.9 minutes per game for the Warriors, who lost preseason first team guard Brittaney Niebergall to injury after just 11 games.
Junior post Ornela Bacchini and sophomore guard/forward Tanis Fuller earned honorable mention honors for the Warriors.
Lewis-Clark State finished 8-21 overall in 2012-13 and 3-8 in conference play.
Yazzie was named the league’s Player of the Year after earning the same award in the preseason. Westminster coach Shelley Jarrard took home Coach of the Year honors after leading the Griffins to their first Frontier Conference tournament title and a berth in the national tournament.
Patterson was voted Newcomer of the Year, Haleigh Crnkovich (Rocky Mountain) and Tibbits were chosen as Co-Defensive Players of the Year, Westminster’s Tia Pappas won the 6th Player Award as the league’s top reserve and Great Falls’ Erin Legel garnered Freshman of the Year honors after leading the Frontier Conference with over six assists per game.
