Second Annual Girl’s All-County Basketball Team

1st Team:

•Kenzie Lind, 5’10” Sr. G/F Rushford-Peterson. Surpassed 1,000 career points. Recorded a quadruple double. The Trojans heart-and-soul, Ms. Versatility, Lind led R-P to a 1A East runner-up (12.3 pts, 9.3 rebs, 4.0 stls, and 4.3 assists). She scored 20 or more five times and notched nine double-doubles (10 if you count the quadruple double as two double doubles!). All-Conference.

•MaKenzie Miller, 6’1” Jr. C Chatfield. Stepped into starting rotation, thrived as offensive focal point. Led team in scoring (nearly 13 per) second in rebounding (over 6 per). Scored in double figures in 24 of 29 games. The Gopher inside attack didn’t miss a beat with her wo-manning the middle. All-Conference.

•Sarah Costello, 5’8” Sr. F/G Chatfield. Hard-working versatile leader for the Section runner-up Gophers. Finished second on team in scoring (nearly 10 per game), assists, and steals, first in rebounding (over 7 per game). The Gopher version of R-P’s Lind, or Ms. Multi-Dimensional. All-Conference.

•Alex Peterson, 5’11” Sr. C Fillmore Central. Though the focal point of opponent’s D’s; still averaged almost 13 PPG, almost 8 RPG, all amidst a shortened scheduled and a rough team year. In the record books; her 13 of 13 shooting night against Houston in February of 2011 is the 4th most efficient performance ever in MN girls b-ball history. Honorable Mention A-C

•Cheyenne Losey, 5’10” Jr. G/F, Kingsland. Had a 28-point, 11-rebound game, and a 30-point, 11-rebound game versus Lourdes and R-P respectively. Led Knights in scoring (11-plus per game) and rebounding (7-plus per game), all while her and her teammates dealt with the losses of two coaches. All Conference.

2nd Team:

•Amy Todd, 5’9” Jr F R-P. Did something special during season; bested teammate Lind at a statistical category! Todd’s 13-plus PPG led the Trojans; her 8-plus RPG was second on the squad. Amy notched six double-doubles, four in her last seven games. Honorable Mention A-C.

•MaKayla Pruter, 5’1” Sr. G Kingsland. Led by example for the Knights, doing more of the little things (than scoring), fighting fearlessly against murders row of talented G’s in Three Rivers (Kalmes, Schammel, Pease, Winjim). Averaged 6 points, but 5 assists per game. Honorable Mention A-C.
