HELENA, Mont. — Glenwood Springs High School graduate Dakota Stonehouse threw for 177 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Carroll (Mont.) College, helping the Saints beat Rocky Mountain College 37-35 this past Saturday to capture the NAIA Frontier Conference title.

Stonehouse, a senior at Carroll, is in his second season as the starting quarterback of the Saints. The victory gave Carroll its first conference championship since the 2011 season and automatically qualified the Saints for the NAIA Division I playoffs. It also moved the Saints up to No. 3 in the NAIA poll.

Stonehouse this season has thrown for 1,876 yards with 22 touchdowns and four interceptions. In 2012 — his first season as the Saints’ starter — he finished with 1,994 passing yards and 24 touchdowns to go with 873 rushing yards and four TD runs.

The son of Steve and Sue Stonehouse was a two-time Class 3A first-team all state award winner in 2007 and 2008. The Demons went 14-0 and won the 3A state football championship in his senior season, after which he was named Class 3A’s Player of the Year.

Carroll plays at Dickinson State on Saturday.

Sharaya Selsor breaks single-game scoring record at Mesa

GRAND JUNCTION — Colorado Mesa University senior guard Sharaya Selsor now owns the Mavericks’ single-game scoring record thanks to her 39-point performance against Southwestern Oklahoma State University during an 82-68 victory in Weatherford, Okla., on Nov. 9.

Selsor, a Glenwood Springs High School graduate, finished 13-of-27 shooting from the floor and 5 of 9 from beyond the 3-point line. She helped the Mavs (2-0), the 13th-ranked team in Division II, win twice during the weekend and, on Tuesday, was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week. She finished with 13 points the previous day in Mesa’s 69-42 win over Northwestern Oklahoma.

Selsor broke the women’s basketball team’s single-game mark of 38 points, which was set by Tonya Stites in 1994.

The daughter of John and Connie Selsor was a two-time all-state selection in Class 4A and was also an all-Western Slope League selection in each of her four years at Glenwood. The Demons reached the Class 4A semifinals during her junior year in 2007.
