Two Outlaws earn honorable mention

The Lady Outlaws basketball squad had two players, Payden Petterson and Haleigh Froehlich, earn Honorable Mention All-Conference awards. The Oregon West Conference is tough and talented, and although the Outlaws didn’t have the best season, both Petterson and Froehlich did get noticed, and were respected by the other coaches in the


Petterson, a senior and team captain, averaged eight points and 4.5 rebounds per game as a shooting guard for the Outlaws this year.

Coach Paul Patton said, “Payden was our best perimeter shooter, a good rebounder, and a good all-around player with a nose for the ball. In her four years she saw three coaching changes and endured the pandemic disruptions, so she is a very resilient and dedicated athlete.”

Froehlich, a junior, averaged seven points and 6.5 rebounds per game for the Outlaws.

“Haleigh got most of her points off of offensive rebounds, which is especially impressive considering that she’s not that tall as far as post players go, maybe 5-foot-9-inches. She is just determined and willing to play physically under the basket.”
