Courtney May, Concordia Cavaliers
Courtney May tears it up for Concordia (by Aaron VanTuyl, The Chronicle, Nov. 30, 2010) Napavine's Courtney May is making a big impact for Concordia University. May, a first-team All-NWAACC West Division pick last year as the starting point guard for Centralia College, is a junior playing for the Cavaliers, and was named the Cascade Collegiate Conference's Red Lion Player of the Week for the week of Nov. 29.
During that span, the Napavine product—who led the Tigers to the State 2B title game her senior year—posted Concordia's first triple-double since 2006 as the Cavaliers blew out No. 10-ranked George Fox, 84-64. May had 13 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in the win, then had 12 points, seven boards and eight assists against California Maritime, and wrapped up the week with 19 points, eight rebounds and seven steals in an 80-67 win over No. 22-ranked Holy Names (Calif.).
In three games, the left-handed guard averaged 14.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 5.0 steals. She shot 53 percent from the field, including 50 percent from 3-point range. Needless to say, she's fitting in pretty well at Concordia. The Cavs are 8-3, with eight straight wins after dropping their first three games.
