Maddie Harris (Southeast of Saline)
Despite already being a 2-time all-league player as a freshman and sophomore, we asked Maddie to move to a more traditional point guard role for her junior campaign. Maddie not only made the move, but shined as the quarterback on the court igniting the offense while taking care of the basketball.
Maddie is that spark-plug that provided non-stop energy on the court and she stuffs the stat-sheet night in and night out. Maddie does not shy away from big moment, she was at her best when it counted most, including a game-winning 3 with seconds left in a one-point win vs Chapman.

Reagan Goetz (Southeast of Saline)
Reagan stepped up this season while leading us in scoring creating problems for opponents as she could score from everywhere on the court. She also showed her defensive versatility as she spent most nights battling in the paint against our opponent’s post player. Reagan really got going in January and remained hot for the rest of the season including a career high 34-points vs Minneapolis to clinch a 3rd straight NCAA-League title for SES.
Reagan broke several school records, going 80-100 from the free throw line at 80% for the season en route to a 75% career mark which is also a Trojan record. She also broke the school record for 3's made in a season with 44.

Tyler Vidricksen (Salina Central)
Tyler had a great junior season for us. She stepped up for our program and was a huge factor in our team getting back to the Sub-State Championship game. She led us in scoring and was one of the best 3 point shooters in our league.

Katie Weiss (Sacred Heart)
I am extremely happy for Katie! Her work ethic is second to none! She led our team in points this year at 14 per game and became a leader for this years group! This award is well deserved!!
Coach Carl Hines
Paityn Fritz (Salina South)
Even as a freshman, early in the season it was clear that Paityn was going to be an impactful player for our team. Paityn led our team in scoring, rebounds, and blocks and provided stability around the rim on the defensive end. We are pleased to see her have such an incredible start to her high school career and excited to see her continue to develop the next three seasons.
