4th Annual Girl’s All-Country Team


Fri, Mar 28th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

1st Team

Kendra Crawford (5’6” senior G, Rushford-Peterson): It was quite the senior year for Trojan’s lead guard. R-P posted a 10-year best win total of 23 (and 5). After back-to-back losses in the 1A East finals, they punched through and finished the year as Section 1A runner-ups. Kendra became the third Trojan girl in the past three years to top 1,000-points (1,068 to be exact, 4th all-time). Her 16.5 points per game was third best in 3-Rivers. Crawford also led the conference in steals (5.2 per game) and assists (5.4 per), literally taking from the opponent and giving to her teammates. She added 3.6 rebounds per game to be a true stat-sheet stuffer; one of only two girls (McKenzie Kirtz of Southland) with over 100-plus points, rebounds, assists, and steals. She scored in double digits in each of R-P’s first 26 games (26 of 28) and had three rare double-doubles (points and assists twice, points and steals). She had a career-high 27 in a big play-off win over M-C. A four-year player, Crawford ends as an easy All-Conference selection. If there was an award for ‘top senior’ in the 3-Rivers this year, one would be hard pressed not to give it to Crawford. She was second team All-County in 2012-2013.

Kirsten Keefe (5’7” junior G, Chatfield): Going from Crawford to Keefe is fitting. Each filled a similar roll to their teams’ similarly great seasons. Keefe’s Gophers did the amazing and started the season 24-0, getting ranked as high as #3 in Class AA, eventually grabbing a Sub-Section 1AA runner-up trophy. Along the way, K-squared was Chatfield’s best player across the board. She led the Gophers in scoring (10.5 per game) courtesy of incredible efficiency. Keefe finished top ten in the 3-Rivers in every shooting category; #1 in 3-point percentage at 37.9% (minimum 15 makes), #4 in free throws at 75.5% (minimum 30 attempts), and #7 in field goals at 50.3 % (minimum 100 attempts). Keefe was third in the conference in assists (4.4 per game) and fourth in steals (3.6 per game). She added 4.4 rebounds per game to be the Gophers stat-sheet stuffer. Keefe came up just 9 steals shy of being in the 4x100 club (points, rebounds, assists, and steals). All of that came within head coach Brian Baum’s 9-girl rotation. Keefe has now quarterbacked Gopher girls’ basketball for two-plus seasons. The two-time All-Conference and All-County performer still has that third full season ahead of her, one that should again be treme .....
