USU Eastern sophomore guard, Kinlee Toomer, was named to two prestigious awards:  honorable mention selection to the NJCAA Division 1 All-America team and First Team All-Conference selection for Region-18.

Toomer completed the season averaging 13.1 points, 4.4 assists and 1.6 steals per game, all of which were team highs. A floor general for USU Eastern throughout the season, Toomer also finished inside the top-30 nationally in assist to turnover ratio.

As part of her 2021-22 statistical resume, Toomer scored a season-high 27 points in a 69-67 road win over Snow College on Dec. 9. Nine days later, she registered a triple double, scoring 18 points to go along with 10 assists and 10 rebounds in a home win over Colorado Northwestern.

Toomer played 80 regular season games in three years at USU Eastern, averaging 10 points, five boards and four assists in that span of time. She graduated from Emery High School where she was a two-time 3A State Champion and two-time 1st Team All State.

The announcement marks the second time in three years that USU Eastern has had an All-American in the program. Margarett Otuafi was named an honorable mention in 2020.
