With the conclusion of the girls basketball season in Montgomery County, that means that it’s award season. The Sagamore Conference on Wednesday announced it’s All-Conference awards for it’s first and second teams. All three county schools were represented on each team so let’s take a look at the lists.
ALL-SAC 1ST TEAM
Southmont junior DeLorean Mason led the way for the Mounties all season on both ends of the floor and she was recognized for her performance by being named to the All-SAC First Team. This past season Mason averaged 13.7 points per game which led the SAC. On defense Mason was even more of a force as during the regular season she averaged 6.3 steals per game which led the entire state.
Crawfordsville junior Taylor Abston joins Mason on the All-SAC First-Team. She averaged 12.1 points per game while grabbing nine rebounds and blocking 2.3 shots a game. Her 12.1 points were good for fourth in the SAC while she ran away with leading the SAC in blocks. She also shot a very impressive 72% from the foul line this past season.
Rounding out the members of the All-SAC 1st Team was North Montgomery’s Piper Ramey. In just her sophomore season, Ramey was asked a lot of as she was the Chargers primary ball handler, scorer, and rebounder. For the year Ramey averaged 11.0 points per game while grabbing 8.7 rebounds. She dished out 2.4 assists and tallied nearly two steals a game.
A pair of Mounties made the All-SAC 2nd Team as both Chelsea Veatch and Chloe Jenkins were joined Mason as All-Conference selections. Jenkins averaged 7.9 points and her 9.7 rebounds was good enough for second in the conference. Veatch scored 7.5 a game and grabbed 3.7 rebounds, and dished out 2.5 assists in her senior season.
ALL-SAC 2ND TEAM
Two Athenians were named to the second team. Senior Elyse Widmer and Sophomore Riley Gardner both earned All-SAC honors as Widmer in her final season averaged 5.7 points per game to go along with four rebounds, and dished out a pair of assists. Gardner concluded her sophomore campaign for the Athenians averaging 4.7 points and six rebounds.
Rounding out the All-SAC second team were a pair of Chargers as freshman Macee Norman and senior Madison Banta were named to the team. Norman was the second leading scorer for the Chargers this past season behind Ramey scoring 7.4 points and also grabbing five rebounds while shooting 61% from the foul line.
