Here’s a breakdown of Carson Valley athletes who have graduated from high school and now compete in college:
ALLISON MEYER — George Fox University (Newberg, Ore.), 2016 Douglas graduate: Meyer hit four home runs on Sunday to help the Bruins sweep Lewis & Clark, 15-2 and 7-5, during a doubleheader in Portland. The sophomore left fielder homered twice in each game, and in the process, tied the school single-season record with her 10th round-tripper so far in 2018. As of Wednesday, Meyer ranked No. 2 in the nation in home runs among NCAA Division III schools. Both of her home runs in the opener were two-run shots and she finished the day 4-for-8 with seven RBI overall. And for the second straight week, Meyer was named Northwest Conference Position Student-Athlete of the Week.
SHAENA ROBINSON — Marshalltown Community College (Marshalltown, IA), 2016 Douglas graduate: Robinson homered over the center field fence to tie the score 1-all in the first inning and ended up 3-for-4 on March 22 in game two of a doubleheader against North Iowa Community College. She was also 1-for-4 with a double in game one for the Tigers in their split of the twin-bill. One week before, the sophomore center fielder was honored as Iowa Community College Athletic Association Division I Softball Player of the Week after hitting 15-for-30 with seven home runs. “Outside of the numbers everyone sees, she is an absolute professional in her approach to the game. I expect her to continue her offensive and defensive production,” Tigers coach Garland Shirley told the MCCathletics.com website. “
