FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- The Northwest Conference announced its All-Sportsmanship teams last week, and 18 Lewis & Clark student-athletes were included.
The teams are made up of one competitor from each conference school that competes in the respective sport. Selections are made by each institution's team or coach.
10 graduated student-athletes accounted for over half of the Pios on the list, four of which competed for a men's program this past year. Christian Macdonald played in 65 games over four years with the Pios baseball team, hitting .237 in his final season. From men's basketball, Jason Luhnow was an All-NWC Second-Team selection and scored 1,001 career points. Kian Lutu was a four-year mainstay for football's offensive line and one of five team members on the Spring 2016 Dean's List. Deion Mock earned the Dan Jones Male Multi-Sport Athlete of the Year at April's ELCYS student-athlete awards, finished 11th nationally in the pole vault and was named Lewis & Clark's men's NWC First-Team Scholar-Athlete.
Kylie Carera graduated after the fall semester and her final season with women's soccer, helping the Pios to a fifth-place finish, as she earned All-NWC First-Team honors. Ashley Wamboldt was a women's cross country team captain this past season and ran her season best at the L&C Invitational last October. Ellen Anderson was one of six seniors on the women's rowing team, which finished second in the NWC and earned the ChamPIOns Team Award at the ELCYS. Jeanie Mullins competed in track and field and ranked eighth in the triple jump, 15th in the long jump and 16th in the 100 meters for the Northwest Conference this past spring. Ali Carleton captained the volleyball team to their best NWC finish in four years and totaled 370 career kills. Aurora Garrison was one of two seniors on the NWC champion women's tennis team, which qualified for the NCAA Championship.
Other All-Sportsmanship selections included Kelley Koeppen of women's basketball, Blake Slattengren of men's cross country, Drew Groshong of men's golf, Sofia Vigil of women's golf, Kalin Rooney of softball, Kevin Fox of men's swimming, Alex Raphael of women's swimming and Harrison Collins of men's tennis. Since it is not an NWC-sponsored sport, a men's rowing team was not named.
