Fifth Annual Girls Basketball All-County Team

1st Team

Kirsten Keefe (5’7” senior G, Chatfield): The K-squared era of girls basketball at Chatfield is over. After 92 total varsity games, the stand-out guard’s fantastic career is done. Keefe quarterbacked Chatfield to a 77-15 record (.837 win percentage). Included was a free throw that sent the Gophers to the 2011-2012 Section title game, the 24-straight win season a year ago, and then another 24-win season this year, where the Gophers spent the entire year ranked. For her career, Keefe averaged 9.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 3.1 steals per game. She finished with 886 total points. As a senior, it was again all about stat-stuffing efficiency. Kirsten led Chatfield in scoring (12.4), assists (5.3), steals (3.5), three-pointers made (36), and three-point percentage (40.5). She was second in rebounding (4.6) and field goal percentage (47.62) while shooting 71.8% at the charity stripe (third best). She finished top 25 in the TRC in all eight categories, with only three’s made (20th) and rebounding (24th) falling outside the top 14. Only PEM’s Sarah Hart could boast such equivalent production. For a second straight year, Keefe ranked top five in the conference in assists (1st), three-point percentage (2nd), steals (4th), and FT-percentage (5th). It was never really about scoring for Keefe, who in those 92 games hit double-digits a modest 43 times. It was about running Brian Baum’s systems. However, her top six scoring games senior year, including her career highs (24), did come against some of Chatfield’s tougher foes. And though Keefe’s only b-ball ‘championship’ after her frosh year was the TRC crown in 2013-2014 (with a couple sub-section runner-ups), it was still a remarkable run, one played in the toughest section in the state (See D-E Class AA state champions). A three-time TRC All-Conference (2015 All-West) and All-County selection.

Brianna Koop (5’8” sophomore F, R-P): From 2011-2014, R-P girls basketball had back-to-back-to-back 1,000-point scorers (Kenzie Lind, Amy Todd, Kendra Crawford). In 2014-2015, the Trojans couldn’t make it four in four years, but Koop got awfully close. With all things staying the same, she will top 1,000-points very very early her junior year. The TRC scoring (21.2) and rebounding (9.5) champion, Koop also finished first in the TRC in free throw attempts (228), second in makes (147) and steals (4.1). She was everything for the young Trojans, obviously .....

1st Team. Charlie Krambeer (6’1” senior guard, R-P): Sports are about improvement, and Krambeer, the Trojans’ three-year lethal shooter, improved the rest of his game as a senior. Krambeer still was Mr. three-pointer, hitting 90 at a 43.8% c .....
