All-State, All-District Girls Basketball teams announced

OTTUMWA — Several girls were also honored by the Iowa Newspaper Association as All-State honorees on Monday. Those players, along with a few more select area players, were also honored by the Iowa Girls Coach Association as all-district selections.

North Mahaska senior Mallory Boyle was a Class 2A first team utility selection while Twin Cedars senior Alee Hugan was the lone area player to be named all-state in Class 1A, earning a second-team front line selection. Davis County junior Shelby Graves, who led the Mustangs and all area players with 125 assists this season, was a third-team backcourt selection in Class 3A.

Oskaloosa senior Kena Veldhuizen, the area’s leading scorer at 19.6 points a game for the 10th-ranked Indians, was named to the Class 4A all-state second-team and Southeast District team. Sidney Baumann joined Veldhuizen on the 4A all-district squad after scoring 17.6 points a game. Baumann’s senior season was highlighted by 51 points in two road postseason upsets leading the Trojans within a win of the state tournament, including 27 points in a 54-49 win at Osky in the regional semifinals.

Davis County junior Rylee Eakins was the lone area selection on the Class 3A Southeast District team. Eakins was one of four area players to average a double-double this season, scoring a team-best 15.3 points while pulling in 11.7 rebounds for the Mustangs.

One of the other area double-double players, Van Buren senior Hannah Haynes, was one of four selections to the Class 2A Southeast All-District team. Haynes was second in the area in both scoring and rebounding average with 19.1 points, 12.4 rebounds and was fourth overall in the state with 134 blocks this season.

Cardinal senior Lindsay Moore joined Haynes as one of two Southeast Iowa Superconference south stars on the 2A Southeast team. Moore scored 18 points a game for the Comets.

Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont junior Tasha Alexander also earned all-district honors on the team with Haynes and Moore after leading the Rockets to a share of the South Central Conference title with 14.7 points and 8.4 rebounds a game.

EBF’s season was ended by North Mahaska, who made it to the regional semifinals as defending 1A state champs playing in Class 2A with Mallory Boyle’s team-leading 14.4 points, seven rebounds, 3.4 assists and 3.5 steals per game earning the Warhawk senior a 2A Southeast all-district selection.

Three senior leaders of Bluegrass Conference teams were named to the Class 1A South all-district squad. Hugan, who led Twin Cedars to within a win of the school’s first state tournament with 19.2 points a game, joined leading area rebounder Katelynn Tracy of Moravia (14.4) and Bluegrass scoring leader Natalie Potter of Moulton-Udell (19.2).
