Koontz flies to 10th, Millett set for Saint Mary
Here’s a breakdown of Carson Valley athletes who have graduated from high school and now compete in college:
SHELBY KOONTZ — Indiana University, 2016 Douglas graduate: Koontz took second-place in the “B” final and 10th overall in the 100-meter butterfly on Friday at the U.S. Open Swimming Championships in East Meadow, N.Y. She clocked 59.90 in the race. On June 29, she finished 32nd in the 100 butterfly (1:00.57) at the Phillips 66 US Swimming Nationals in Indianapolis.
CORRYNE MILLETT — College of Saint Mary (Omaha, Neb.), 2015 Douglas graduate: Millett signed a letter-of-intent in June to continue her education and play basketball at Saint Mary. The 6-foot forward played the last two seasons at College of San Mateo in the Bay Area. “We are super excited to add Corryne Millett to our roster,” coach Jesse Flanagan said on the csmflames.com website. “She is a high-quality kid both on and off the court. On the court, she gives us that presence in the middle that we have been lacking. On the offensive end, she can knock down the mid-range jumper, plus she can finish around the rim. She is also relentless on the glass. Off the court, Corryne is an outstanding person. She has a big heart and will be an excellent teammate.” Millett plans to study kinesiology. “I feel I will be successful at College of Saint Mary,” she told the csmflames.com website. “Between academics and athletics there is a lot of opportunity to reach my goals as a student-athlete.”
KALEB FOSTER — University of Nevada, 2015 Douglas graduate: Foster, who is coming into his junior year for the Wolf Pack, was selected to play in the New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star game on July 30 in North Adams, Mass. Foster, a catcher, contributed an RBI single in the North-South all-star game, which ended in a 5-5 tie. Foster played in the summer wood bat league for the Mystic Schooners in Groton, Conn. In 17 games he is batting .225 with four runs scored, three doubles, a home run, and two RBI. Foster played in 40 games for the Wolf Pack during the spring season.
