After leading their team to the second-best season in school history, senior forward Brooke Sellards and head coach Anji Weissenfluh have been honored by the Northwest Collegiate Sports Service with postseason awards.

Sellards has been named to the Little All-Northwest first team, and Weissenfluh has been named coach of the year by the Sports Service.

Sellards, the Cascade Collegiate Conferences MVP, averaged 18.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. The Toledo, Wash., native played in all 50 games over her two seasons with the Mountaineers and averaged 16.2 points and 5.5 rebounds in her career.

Weissenfluh, in just her second season at the helm of the womens program, coached Eastern to a 20-5 and the Cascade Conference regular season title. The win total was surpassed only by the 1983 team that won 23 games and was 12 more than in Weissenfluhs first season.

A 31-person panel of collegiate sports information directors and sportswriters in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska made the Little All-Northwest selections.

Other players on the first team included Southern Oregon guard Sara Marks, Central Washington center Rose Shaw, Seattle Pacific forward Kelley Berglund and Alaska-Anchorage guard Bell Jordan.

Weissenfluh was followed in the voting by Western Washingtons Carmen Dolfo and Whitworths Kelen Higgs.
