Martin Breunig, a 6-foot-8 senior from Leverkusen, Germany, became UM’s highest scoring two-year player in school history this season, racking up 1,158 career points in his two seasons as a Griz. Breunig was a two-time unanimous selection to the All-Big Sky Conference First Team. The Grizzlies fell to the Weber State University Wildcats in the Big Sky Conference Tournament championship game. The team finished with a 21-12 record under second-year head coach Travis DeCuire ’94.
UM freshman pitcher Maddy Stensby threw the first no-hitter in program history on April 16 in an 8-0 win over Portland State University. Stensby, from Olympia, Wash., retired fifteen of the sixteen batters she faced, narrowly missing out on a perfect game. Stensby continued with her hot hand, recording yet another no-hitter on April 27 against the University of Great Falls.
Lady Griz junior Kayleigh Valley was named a unanimous All-Big Sky Conference First Team selection after putting together one of the best offensive campaigns in Lady Griz history. The Spokane, Wash., native’s 21.6 points-per-game scoring average during the regular season was surpassed only by Shannon [Cate] Schweyen, who averaged 23.3 in 1991-92 and 22.3 in 1990-91. The Lady Griz posted a 20-11 record and fell in the quarterfinals of the Big Sky Conference Tournament.
