Post-season awards bestowed on Northwest athletes

Written by

Ten Northwest College student-athletes, representing three different sports, were recognized with a wide array of post-season accolades this week. Denise Kobbe, senior program assistant for Northwest College athletics, announced the awards on Wednesday.

Northwest College men’s soccer player Gavin LaFollette was named a second-team All American following a stellar sophomore season. LaFollette transferred to Northwest after the Trappers fielded their first intercollegiate soccer team this last fall. LaFollette, who played high school soccer for Cody, helped direct the Trapper men to an appearance in the Region IX championship game.

Northwest College men’s basketball had a pair of athletes honored. Will Walker, a freshman from Lehi, Utah, was named an all-region and second team all-conference selection for the Trappers. Walker started 19 of 31 games as a freshman, averaging nearly 12 points per game and hauling down 5.2 rebounds. He led Northwest with 364 points this season.

Sophomore Chantz Ramos, who chose the Trappers after a high school career in nearby Worland, was named to the conference’s all-defensive team. Over the course of the season, Ramos accounted for 23 steals for the Trappers and averaged nearly five points per game.

The Trapper women’s basketball team announced seven of its members have received academic all-conference accolades after turning in strong performances in the classroom. Megan Butler, Brecka Carrizales, Layana de Souza, Jessica Fisher, Taylor Ryan, Megan Smith and Mckenzie Garrett were all honored for carrying high GPAs throughout the season.
