Gott, from Lynwood, Washington, earned the honor as a first baseman. The junior led the Loggers throughout the 2017 season in batting average, finishing the year hitting .378. She also led the squad with 27 runs batted in, while clubbing four home runs, good for second on the team. She also recorded 12 doubles and a triple. Gott played in all 39 games for the Loggers, striking out just eight times in 119 at bats. While spending some time at pitcher, Gott spent the majority of the season at first base, recording 277 putouts, with a .987 fielding percentage.

Llamas, a Cerritos, California, native, split her time between second base and shortstop, and earned Honorable Mention as a utility player. The freshman hit .305 on the season, picking up seven RBI. As a speedy slapper, Llamas also hit three doubles and recorded a triple on the year. In the field, she tallied 102 assists playing middle infield, while also putting up 45 putouts, and helping turn six double plays.  

Gott and Llamas helped lead a Logger team which improved its win total by three games from last year, and won the most games of a Puget Sound squad since 2010.

Gott and Llamas are the first Logger teammates to earn All-NWC honors in the same season since 2012 (Aryn Grause, Chrissy Atterson). Cheyenne Fletcher, an outfielder from Linfield earned Player of the Year, while Whitworth's Madi Perez was named the Pitcher of the Year.
