NORTHWEST NOTES: May 20, 2021
Idaho's Walker, Hatten
Tre Walker has been recognized again, this time earning Hero Sports All-America honors, as announced on Wednesday. Hayden Hatten also earned his first national recognition after being named to the Hero Sports Sophomore All-America team.
It is Walker’s fourth All-America recognition this season.
Walker earned All-Big Sky First Team honors in unanimous fashion last month after leading the conference with 13.5 tackles per game. He finished the shortened spring season with 54 tackles over just four games, including recording 13-plus tackles three times. It is Walker's fifth All-America honor of his career, after the previous three this season and earning HERO Sports Sophomore All-America honors in 2019.
Hatten was exceptional in his first season as a true receiver. He led the conference with 7.2 receptions per game and finished third in the league with 102.2 yards per game. He was an All-Big Sky First Team selection.
Lewis-Clark State adds
Lewiston's Carpenter for
volleyball, track and field
Lewis-Clark State will add a two-sport athlete to its ranks in the fall. Lewiston’s Jennah Carpenter will compete in both volleyball and track and field for the Warriors.
“We are lucky to be able to recruit someone who is as strong of an athlete as Jennah is in character,” volleyball coach Shaun Pohlman said. “Jennah has been on our recruiting list from the first day we took the program over. Her athleticism is top notch — she can hit, set, pass, play front row, back row, and let's not forget she's also a track star. The high school is losing an incredible athlete but fortunately the LC Valley still gets to see her compete.”
A senior at Lewiston High, Carpenter earned the Bengal Award and Outstanding Scholastic Award in her four years as a Bengal. She is an outside hitter on the court and competes in the high jump, long jump and triple jump in track and field. She was named the Tribune Prep Athlete of the Week in October after nothing a triple-double with 13 kills, 16 digs and 29 assists against Moscow. Carpenter was also a 2019-20 North Idaho Athletic Hall of Fame awards nominee for track and field. She has cleared a height of 5’5” in the high jump — a mark that would put her in the LC record books.
