Allison Shumate, junior, Lynden Christian

WHY SHE’S #23: One of the league’s biggest surprises, Shumate went from JV last year to one of the NWC’s top inside players in helping the inexperienced Lyncs take third at state. The 5-foot-11 forward improved over the season to average 9.5 points and 4.5 rebounds a game while shooting 57.2 percent from the field.

COACH BRADY BOMBER: “Allison was an inside force for us this season. She made tremendous growth in her game from November to March. Her ability to score around the basket was an invaluable part of our team’s success.”
