Trio honored as CIC's best

The Dimond duo of Tara Thompson and Colleen Fairchild shared offensive player-of-the-year honors and East's Anna Woern was named the defensive player of the year by flag football coaches in the Cook Inlet Conference, which announced its all-conference selections Friday.

Thompson and Fairchild helped Dimond to the CIC's regular-season championship but won't be playing in today's CIC championship game. Woern and the East T-birds knocked off Dimond in a semifinal playoff game Thursday to win a spot in the title game against West.

Coach-of-the-year honors went to Eagle River head coach Matt Turner. East's Jeremy Fox was named the CIC's assistant coach of the year.

East and West square off for the championship at 2 p.m. today at Dimond Alumni Field.
