GIRLS FIRST TEAM
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: APRIL WOOD, RICHFIELD
Why she is Player of the Year: A first-team All-Idaho pick last year, the 5-7 senior forward played bigger than her frame, averaging 11.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.0 steals and 2.7 assists to win a second straight title.
Coach’s comment: “She was our go-to player in the clutch and came up with big baskets in big games,” Richfield coach Buck Hendren said.
What others are saying: “In four years of coaching against her, I have never seen her quit or let the game or defenders get in her head,” Dietrich coach Acey Shaw said.
What’s next: Wood wants to major in wildlife biology and is picking among several small colleges for basketball.
KATEE HUBERT, DIETRICH
A dominant post presence, the 5-8 senior led the Blue Devils to their sixth straight state finals appearance. Her footwork and smooth shot allowed her to average 15.9 points and 7.8 rebounds after earning second-team honors last year.
MADDY TUCKER, SALMON RIVER
The 5-4 junior wing moved to Riggins from Emmett and took over. A constant scoring threat, she topped 30 points four times and averaged 20.8 points a game. She also created for her teammates with 3.6 assists a game, and she averaged 3.8 steals.
ZOE WESSELS, COUNCIL
The Northwest Nazarene signee moves up from second team after dominating all over the floor. The 5-11 senior forward averaged a double-double of 16.1 points and 11.2 rebounds while shooting 56 percent from the floor. She added 2.3 steals and 1.2 blocks a game.
HADDEE REYNOLDS, CASTLEFORD
Just as adept at scoring as she is at dishing it off, the 5-3 junior guard earned second-team honors last year before following up on the first team this year. She averaged 15.5 points a game while adding 5.4 assists and 3.4 steals for the Wolves.
