Accolades for members of the North Harrison girls’ basketball team came in after the program’s first appearance at the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s state final, recognizing All-state performers.
The Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association recently released its All-state players for the 2015-16 season.
Selected to First Team All-state was North Harrison freshman Lilly Hatton. The 6-foot-1 forward tied a Class 3A championship game record with eight blocked shots.
Going into the state final, Hatton averaged 12.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.6 blocked shots per outing. She shot 51 percent from the floor.
Among the 25 players throughout the state placed on the first team, Hatton is the lone freshman to make the list. There were no sophomores who made the list.
Fellow Lady Cats’ forward Cali Nolot was selected ICGSA Third Team All-state. The 5-8 sophomore missed much of the post season with an injury but excelled through the regular slate.
Nolot played in 25 games, averaging 12.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists. From the floor, Nolot shot 50 percent along with 39 percent from beyond the arc.
Other area players named All-state were Taylor Drury (Eastern Pekin), first team; Natalie Ruedinger (Borden), second team; Kiana Rae Wininger (Springs Valley), second team; Emily Hollis (Henryville), third team; Hannah Wolford (Providence), third team; and Claire Rauck (Providence), third team.
Two Harrison County players also were recognized by the ICGSA for academics. North Harrison’s Carlie Burson and South Central’s Sabra Walker were named Academic All-state Honorable Mention.
Burson also was the recipient of the IHSAA’s Patricia L. Roy Mental Attitude Award after the state final.
Other area players honored by the ICGSA as Academic All-state were Cassandra Goodridge (Borden), Morgan Wagner (Floyd Central), Kristen Burger (Floyd Central), Olivia Carnes (Springs Valley).
To earn academic honors, student athletes are nominated based on a series of criteria, including a minimum 3.5 GPA (based on a 4.0 scale), a minimum SAT score (1,110) or ACT score (24) and at least 50-percent participation in varsity contests.
