Fromm, Fuller and Crawford Earn All-Conference Honors
Ask any of us old timers that get together for a game of hoops on Sunday night and we’d tell you that basketball is a young person’s game. The coaches in the Tri-Rivers Conference must agree as the 2004-05 girls all-conference teams were dominated by underclassmen.
Only one senior made the five-player first team. Putnam County’s Brook Shultz was the fourth highest vote recipient. Courteny Shuman, a sophomore from Clark County was named the league’s MVP. She edged out Scotland County’s Ali Fromm, a junior. Joining them on the first team was freshman Tahnee Poe from Schuyler County and junior Trisha Bohle of Milan.
The youngsters ruled on the second team as well where only two of the 11 honorees was a graduating player. Seniors Jessica Taylor of Milan and Shenea Gardner of Brookfield were the elder statesmen in the bunch. Conference champions Clark County earned three spots on the second team led by juniors Brady Logsdon, Ashley Wallingford and Lisa Weaver. North Shelby took two spots with juniors Allison Peoples and Randi Willey. Rounding out the team were freshman Brittany Casady of Putnam County, junior Stephanie Hicks of Knox County, sophomore Nichole Winkler of Schuyler County, and junior Jamie Fuller from Scotland County.
Named to the honorable mention list were: Sam Shaw, a junior from Milan; Shayna Schoonover, a junior from Putnam County; Kate Moon, a junior from Clark County; Jessica Bolte, a senior from North Shelby; Whitney Sayre, a junior from Schuyler County; Haley Montgomery, a senior from Putnam County, Samantha Leckbee, a senior from Knox County; Valerie Crawford, a senior from Scotland County; Shannon Anderson, a senior from Putnam County; Janna Yates, a junior from Clark County; Erin Hunolt, a senior from Knox County; Whitney Schnelle, a sophomore from Milan; Ashley Sidwell, a senior from Schuyler County and Rachel Smith, a senior from North Shelby.
Clark County’s Jason Harper was named the conference coach of the year.
