Joining her on the first team is teammate Kelli Jo Harrison. The 6-1 junior began her career as a spot-up outside shooter, but became increasingly tougher in the paint this past season, culminating in a 30-point, 16-rebound effort in a 71-66 los to Princeton in a Class AAA Region 3 co-final loss last week.
Harrison passed the 1,000-point mark for her career in that game.
After the George Washington teammates, the underclassmen pretty much take over as the last three spots on the first team go to sophomores. They are Hurricane's Abby Watson, Riverside's Brittany Wood and Nitro's Savannah Shamblin.
Each brings something different to the table.
Watson is a 5-10 wing player who scores, rebounds, brings the ball up against presses and anything else that is needed.
The 6-1 Wood is a dominant post player who not only scores and rebounds, but blocks shots with such frequency that few opposing players challenge her in the lane.
The 5-3 Shamblin is a scoring point guard who breaks opposing presses with ease and can score from almost anywhere on the floor.
The youth trend continues on the second and third teams with three freshmen and three sophomores filling six of 10 spots.
The Freshman of the Year is Sissonville point guard Madison Jones.
Jones barely edged out teammate Karli Pinkerton and St. Albans point guard Torri Wilson for the honor.
The Coach of the Year goes to Scott James of St. Albans.
James, who is in his 10th year guiding the Red Dragons, had a team with no seniors that had lost several key players from the previous year.
He took that young team all the way to a 14-11 record and the Class AAA Region 4 co-final, suffering a 57-46 loss to Logan, which seeded fifth in this week's field at the State Tournament.
