The girls all conference teams were recently announced by the West Michigan Conference and 4 area players landed on the lists.
In the Lakes Division Fremont junior Jessica Bennett earned first team honors.
Coach Zerlaut: “Jessica really developed into a leader for our team this year. She averaged 10.1 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game, 1.7 assists, 1.4 steals, and one blocked shot per game. As the season went along I thought she improved her inside game, developing the ability to score out of the post, as well as to better attack the basket off the dribble.”
Holton's basketball future looks bright with two first team selections in the Rivers Division who have another year of eligibility for the Red Devils, Abbie Fowler and Ryann Roberts.
Coach Jordan; “ I first want to speak to them as individuals. Both just great kids that take care of business in the classroom and both keep a busy busy schedule year round as they are 3 sport athletes and play travel softball as well.
Abbie Fowler 9.7 ppg 5.1 apg (led both WMC divisions) 4.9 spg
“I asked a lot of her this year, and she played a ton of minutes for me, hardly ever came out and never came out until late in the 4th on the few times she did. We just had to have her out there, we weren’t the same team without her… we got a small taste of what that was like in districts.. and I didn’t like it. She was so important to our teams success.. she was the engine
She was the primary ball under and the top of our press and zone, and she had a really good year this year, last year too but she really improved in the scoring department and improved so much at finishing around the time, Something she struggled with at times last year. Very active defender , Every game she had a bunch of steals and deflections. She made a ton of great passes this year and set her teammates up all the time. I’m really happy she got this recognition as she is more than deserving.”
Ryann Robins 10.0 ppg 10.2 rpg 2.1 spg
“Ryann averaged a double double for the second year in a row. The only girl in our division to do so and 1 of 2 in the entire conference, so there is something to say about that. She is just a big strong girl, and she has pretty good hands as well so that combination helps with rebounding and scoring down low. She had several 20 pt games this year and a few 15 plus rebounding games as well. And I actually feel she has another level she can get to if she can learn to play with a little edge and use that frame as she could and should. She faced a lot of doubles this year and many teams schemed to limit her touches , she opens the floor up for all her teammates.”
Hesperia’s Samantha Logana was given Honorable Mention in the Rivers Division. As a key member of the Panther squad
Coach Elenbaas: “Samatha was a great player for us this past season. She is a hard worker with a great attitude. She led the team in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals. She was a leader on the team and was constantly seeking improvement for both herself and the team. She will be greatly missed next year."
