Her basketball season ended prematurely, but she continues to be showered in awards.

Coupeville grad Makana Stone, already honored as the Northwest Conference Player of the Year, was named Tuesday to the D3hoops.com West Region First Team.

The Whitman College senior, who averaged 15.1 points and 8.3 rebounds, joins Emma Gerdes of Wartburg, Caitlin Navratil of Nebraska Wesleyan, Taite Anderson of Bethel, and Hanna Geistfeld of Bethany Lutheran.

Two other NWC players, Jamie Lange of Puget Sound and Kory Oleson of Linfield, earned Third Team honors.

Stone collected 409 points, 225 rebounds, 37 assists, 26 steals, and 26 blocks, while shooting 166-316 (52.5%) from the floor and 74-96 (77.1%) from the free-throw line this season.

During her four years as a Blue, the former Wolf star played in 110 games, including making a program-record 92 starts.

She finished as the #5 scorer (1,337 points) and #2 rebounder (837 caroms) in Whitman women’s basketball history.

Sparked by the play of Stone and teammates such as Mady Burdett, Whitman went 26-3, won its first regular-season title since 2014, and opened the NCAA tourney with back-to-back wins.

The Blues were in Maine preparing to play Oglethorpe University in the Sweet 16 when the remainder of the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Don’t go, we have more awards.

Coupeville’s Nick Streubel has already graduated from Central Washington University and played the final football game of his stellar collegiate career, but the honors continue to flow in.

The former Wolf was recently tabbed as an All-Conference player for the third time, while also being named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Offensive Lineman of the Year.

Now the red-shirt senior has been named for the second time to the All-Super Region 4 team.

Streubel, who anchored Central’s line at center as the Wildcats won a third-straight league crown, was a First Team selection, while teammate Tyren Sams, a defensive back, made the Second Team.

With the All-Region honor tucked away, The Big Hurt is eligible now for All-American status.

After playing football, basketball, and track and field during his Coupeville High School days, Streubel spent six seasons on the CWU gridiron squad.

He red-shirted his freshman season, then later missed a year with a medical red-shirt after breaking his hand into about a zillion pieces.

Through it all, Streubel was a standout when on the field, and ended his career as a captain and the face of Wildcat football, adorning much of the team’s branding this season.

Central rolled up 504.7 yards of total offense per game this season, best in their league, and ninth-best among all NCAA D-II teams.

Streubel and Co. also surrendered just 13 sacks all season.
