Shiloh Perleras

College of Southern Idaho’s Shiloh Perleras hits the ball during the SWAC Region 18 Volleyball Tournament. Perleras was one of six players from Hawaii on CSI’s 2016 volleyball team.


12 — The number of players from Hawaii who have suited up for the Golden Eagles’ volleyball team in the past six years, since College of Southern Idaho assistant volleyball coach Jim Cartisser’s first recruiting trip to Hawaii in summer 2010.

“I go over there every year for the state tournament, and I’ll be the only mainland coach in the gym,” Cartisser said. “When the high school and the club coaches vouch for you, it’s better than anything else you can do.”

3 — The number of District IV athletes set to play on Division III school Southern Virginia University athletic teams during the 2017-18 school year: girls basketball players Katee Hubert (Dietrich) and Moriah Dill (Dietrich) and boys golfer Christian Kidd (Declo). Hagerman graduate Larissa Knight played for Southern Virginia women’s basketball last season before transferring at the end of the year.

The school, which Kidd called “The BYU of the East,” does not have an official religious affiliation. But it calls itself “the only private liberal arts college dedicated to educating Latter-day Saints.”

3 District IV athletes who suited up for the five Division III schools in Oregon combined last season.

4 — The number of local women’s basketball players set to play for Walla Walla Community College next year: sophomores Kortney Hutchison (Burley) and Adrianna Peralez (Minico) and incoming freshmen Malorie Bowen (Declo) and Blair Radford (Wood River).

0 — The number of Treasure Valley players on the Walla Walla women’s basketball roster, despite the Treasure Valley’s closer geographic proximity.

5 — Local athletes on Eastern Oregon’s 2017 football roster: Kody Arellano (Glenns Ferry), Bryson Comstock (Gooding), Haziel Ledezma (Jerome), Joey Lenker (Jerome) and Spencer Stephens (Lighthouse Christian). Prior to 2015, no local athletes played football for Eastern Oregon for at least the previous five seasons.
