Vikings’ Colard and White are GNAC Women’s Basketball Pre-season All-Stars

Western Washington University had two players named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Preseason All-Star Team announced Thursday.

Picked from the Vikings, the pre-season No. 1 team in the GNAC Coaches Poll, were 5-9 senior guard Katie Colard and 5-5 senior point guard Jenni White.

Colard was a unanimous selection and the second highest vote getter.

Last year, Colard was a first-team GNAC all-star, helping the 19-10 Vikings to the GNAC Tournament championship and a berth in the NCAA Division II West Regional. She averaged a team-high 14.7 points while making 78-of-198 three-pointers. Her 2.7 3-point makes per game ranked 16th nationally and led the GNAC.

White ranked second in the conference in assists last season with 4.7 per contest while receiving GNAC all-star honorable mention. She was the GNAC Tournament MVP.
