Bidart earns soccerall-league honors
Here is a breakdown on Carson Valley athletes who have graduated from high school and now compete in college:
CAITLYN BIDART — Lake Tahoe Community College, 2016 Douglas graduate: Bidart was selected to the all-Golden Valley Conference first-team and became a captain for the Coyotes this season. Other than three games she missed due to concussion symptoms, Bidart started and played every minute at center back. “She has some things to work on in the offseason, like all players, but is one of the more committed and coachable players I’ve ever worked with and is excited at improving this offseason,” coach Jeremy Evans said of Bidart. “I’m looking forward to another big season from her in 2017. She’ll be leaving here ready to move onto the four-year level on scholarship and make another coach as happy as I am with her.” The Coyotes finished their season with an 11-5-4 overall record (8-2-2 conference) and only missed the Northern California playoffs on a criteria formula.
ASPEN ABBOTT — Southern Oregon (Ashland, Ore.), 2013 Douglas graduate: Abbott helped the Southern Oregon women’s team place seventh at the NAIA Championships on Nov. 19 in Elsah, Ill. Abbott ran 19:08 on the 5,000-meter course to finish 153rd overall (sixth for the Raiders) in a field of 334 participants. Southern Oregon matched its highest finish ever in a national championship meet.
MADELINE LOWE — Sonoma State, 2016 Douglas graduate: Lowe had two points — shooting 2-for-2 from the free throw line — during 10 minutes on the floor in a 68-67 overtime loss at Menlo College Tuesday night. The loss was the first this season for the 4-1 Seawolves.
