Stone chosen for tour team / Basketball

Coupeville High School graduate Makanna Stone, a rising junior at Whitman College, was selected to play on an all-star NCAA Division III women’s basketball team that will tour Brazil this summer.

Stone helped Whitman qualify for the national D-III tournament last winter while earning first-team, all-Northwest Conference honors.

The team touring Brazil consists of invited players from throughout the country who have been recognized at the national, regional and conference levels.

“This is an outstanding group of basketball players that come from 12 different states and 14 different colleges and universities from across the United States,” Ron Smith, director of USA Sports Tours and Events, said. “These players have been high achievers both on the court and in the classroom. They represent everything good that the NCAA Division III institutions have to offer. ”

The tour runs July 16-25 and will include four games, starting July 18 at Jundiai, Sao Paulo.

The American team will experience educational, cultural and social aspects of Brazilian life through city, school and sports club visits.

Stone, in addition to earning all-league honors last season at Whitman, twice received the NWC Student-Athlete of the Week award, was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the Whitworth Holiday Classic in December and was picked for the all-tournament team for the Ramada at the Spokane Airport Whit Classic in November.
