GHS junior Ceirra Carlson has been named to the Class 2A All-Northwest Conference team. She joins Emilee Reasch, Amanda Robertson and Kim Shumway of Lovell, Brittany Vigil and Cydnie Clark of Riverside, Shauna Loman and Kallee Wilson of Rocky Mountain and Dana Bjorhus and Jordan Leyba of Thermopolis.

Bjorhus was named Northwest Conference player of the year, with Lady Bulldog Coach Chris Edwards honored by his peers as the conference coach of the year.

Lady Buff Coach Jeff Hunt said Ceirra’s selection “was no surprise. Ceirra had a great season and her stats are comparable to the conference player of the year (Bjorhus).” Carlson averaged 13.3 points per game, had 118 rebounds, dished out 57 assists and had 74 steals.

“Ceirra scored in double figures 22 times and nine of those were 15 points or higher,“ Hunt pointed out. “She was a threat every time she stepped on the court. She was also one of the best defensive players on the court, every game. She has received compliments from throughout the state.

Summing it up, Hunt said,  “It was just a great year for her; I’m looking forward to watching her play next season.”

Ceirra is the daughter of Mike and Shelby Carlson.
