She’s been crowned as the belle of the (round)ball.

Coupeville grad Makana Stone has won a ton of honors during a stellar four-year run on the basketball court at Whitman College, but now she’s reached the top of the podium.

The former Wolf ace was named the Northwest Conference Player of the Year Tuesday, honored for leading her team to a league title and the #7 ranking in all of D-III hoops.

Whitman went 15-1 in league action and is 23-2 overall heading into the start of the conference postseason tourney Thursday night.

Stone, a senior, has racked up 398 points, 216 rebounds, 36 assists, 25 steals, and 25 blocks this season, and is shooting 163-304 from the floor and 69-87 at the free throw line.

While this is her first collegiate Player of the Year award, Andre Stone’s lil’ sis was previously named a First-Team All-Conference player as both a sophomore and junior.

She is joined on the 2019-2020 All-Conference First-Team squad by Blues teammate Mady Burdett, as well as Kory Oleson and Molly Danielson of Linfield, Jamie Lange of Puget Sound, and Courtney Carolan of Pacific.

Whitman’s coach, Michelle Ferenz, was honored as Coach of the Year.
