SPOKANE, Wash. – Kalista Fourre and Trinity Frank earned Whitworth's inaugural spots on the All-Northwest Conference team, according to an announcement from the conference office.

Frank (Fr. – Spokane Valley, Wash.) led the Bucs in goals (18), groundballs (31), and draw controls (38) during Northwest Conference play. She also caused 13 turnovers. The midfielder finished the NWC season in the top ten in the conference in draw controls and groundballs. 

"Trinity has been a huge part of our midfield this season and I'm happy she was recognized for all her hard work this year," said Whitworth head coach Noelle Brouillard. 

Fourre (Jr./Fr. – Yelm, Wash.) led the Pirates with 14 draw controls during Northwest Conference play. The defender also moved into the midfield to grab 14 draw controls and scooped up 25 groundballs. 

"One would never know by watching her play but Kalista picked up a lacrosse stick for the first time a little over a year ago," said Brouillard. "She is now one of our most dynamic defenders, and every day this season I was blown away by what she was able to do on the field in such a short amount of time." 

Whitworth finished its inaugural season with a 1-14 overall record and 1-11 mark in Northwest Conference play. Both Fourre and Frank will return for the Pirates' second season next Spring.
