Demitrius Kigeya named to All-West Coast Conference first team


Madison native Demitrius Kigeya has been named to the all-conference first team in the West Coast Conference in his senior year at Gonzaga University.

Kigeya is the son of Dane County Supervisor April Kigeya and West High School principal Daniel Kigeya.

It’s the forward’s fifth postseason honor, as he made the WCC All-Freshman Team in 2018 and was named to the All-WCC Second Team in 2019, 2020 and 2021. He was also named to the preseason all-conference team four consecutive years.

Kigeya started in all 18 games and scored three goals for the Zags during his senior year and led the team in shots (47), assists (7) and points (13). He ended the season in the top five in assists and shots in the WCC this season and his 169 career shots place him third all-time at Gonzaga.

He was a standout on a team that had a rough year, finishing 4-11-3.

Kigeya played in the Wisconsin Rush youth program and spent two years at Madison Memorial before transferring to Shattuck-St. Mary’s, a boarding high school in Minnesota primarily known for producing elite ice hockey players, then went on to Spokane, Washington to play for Gonzaga. He spent the summer of 2019 with Green Bay Voyageurs in USL League Two.

April Kigeya told Madison365 that Demitrius has an agent and can begin speaking with professional teams on Saturday.
