Comet Fahndrich set to sign with Raiders

Crater senior Destiny Fahndrich will sign a letter of intent with the Southern Oregon University women’s basketball team at 4 p.m. Monday in the Crater High gymnasium lobby.

Fahndrich, who is also a standout volleyball player, averaged 9.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, two assists and two steals per game as a junior for the Comets, who went 22-11 overall and 11-1 in the Midwestern League. She was named to the MWL first-team list.

The Raiders went 27-5 last season, matching the third-most wins in program history. They fell to Tabor (Kan.) in the second round of the NAIA Tournament.

Ex-Crater star named to WOU HOF

Former Crater and Western Oregon University softball player Tyler Walker (Sutherland) has been chosen for induction into the Wolves Hall of Fame.

The others to be inducted are Bruce Hamilton, Casey Cosler (Pape), Tony Burris, Robert Day and Bridget Johnson Tetteh (Johnson). Western Oregon will recognize the Hall of Fame class on Jan. 29.

Walker, who played from 2007 to 2010, is one of only two softball players in the history of WOU to be named an All-American (honorable mention in 2009). That same year she was selected as the GNAC Conference player of the year and landed spots on the first-team all-region and first-team all-conference squads.

She owns career records at WOU in batting average (.389), at-bats (689), runs scored (159), hits (268), runs batted in (96), doubles (59), home runs (24) and stolen bases (48).

Walker was a four- time first-team all-conference selection each of her years on the team.
