GIRLS FIRST TEAM

PLAYER OF THE YEAR: GABI HARRINGTON, BISHOP KELLY

 

Why she is Player of the Year: The 5-9 senior guard and four-year starter carried the Knights to the state finals, averaging 22.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.3 steals per game.

Coach’s comment: “Gabi is one of the top three players in the state of Idaho,” Bishop Kelly coach Derek McCormick said. “Her ability to score is unreal. She scores inside, outside, from the line, in transition. You name it, she can do it.”

What others are saying: “Her ability to jump lanes on defense and finish with a layup is what really separates her from the rest,” Kuna coach Alex Jensen said.

What’s next: Harrington has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Montana.

RIAN RAWLINGS, CENTURY

 

The 5-8 senior point guard led the Diamondbacks back to the state finals, where they won their second straight title. The three-year starter averaged 14.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game as Century’s tough, unquestioned leader.

KORTNEY HUTCHISON, BURLEY

 

Hutchison surpassed the 1,000-point threshold in her career and led the Bobcats in nearly every statistical category. The 5-5 senior guard capped her high school career averaging 16.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists as Burley finished as the state consolation champ.

MADI SCHOENING, SANDPOINT

 

The 5-8 senior guard signed with Montana and left a mark at Sandpoint, finishing her career with 1,418 points and averaging 15.4 ppg over four years. As a senior, she scored 20 or more 14 times and averaged 19.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.8 steals and 1.8 assists.

ALLISON LAW, KUNA

 

Standing at 6-foot, the senior post posed a matchup problem for opponents night in and night out. She was more than just a post who relied on brute strength. Her fundamental skills and mid-range shot allowed her to rack up 17.1 points and 6.8 rebounds a game.
