April 28, 2011
SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Three Gonzaga University women's basketball players and two men's basketball players earned a spot on the 2011 West Coast Conference Winter All-Academic Team.
Senior Janelle Bekkering was named to Women's Basketball All-Academic team for the third-consecutive season, along with classmate Claire Raap, who made the team for the first time in her career. Senior Tatriana Lorenzo earned honorable mention accolades.
"The West Coast Conference is very proud to honor and recognize these exceptional student-athletes," said WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich. "Their strong commitment to academic success is evident as, once again this year, we recognize repeat honorees, including several three-time recipients."
Bekkering, who also earned Capital One Academic All-District 8 accolades earlier this season, started all 36 games for the Bulldogs this season. She averaged 11.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game, while hitting a team-best 51 3-pointers. Bekkering currently has a 3.48 GPA and will graduate this May with a Civil Engineering degree.
Raap also played in all 36 games for Gonzaga, being the first player off the bench. She averaged 14.8 minutes, 5.7 points, 2.7 rebounds per game and shot an impressive 53.1 percent from the field. Raap holds a 3.48 GPA in physical education.
