The junior guard hails from Rupert, Idaho and was averaging 13 points per game before her injury.
Former Big Sandy standout Charla Ray also earned first-team honors for the Carroll College Saints. The senior post player averaged 12 points and eight rebounds a game for the Saints.
Former Skylight guard Jenny Balgua also earned first-team honors for the Rocky Mountain College Battlin' Bears.
Senior forward Bobbi Suhr of UM-Western was named player of the year in the Frontier Conference while coach-of-the year honors went to Western's Kevin Engellant.
