Four Pirates named to JCAA all-conference team


The Perryville girls didn’t quite accomplish all their goals when it came to the conference season. The Pirates finished 5-3 within the Jefferson County Athletic Association Conference this winter, which snapped a run of three straight conference titles.
However, that didn’t mean that the Pirates didn’t garner any postseason honors.
The girls earned three All-Conference honors as Kyla Schnurbusch, Rachel Riney and Brooklyn Moll earned recognition.
Schnurbusch led the way for the Pirates with a first team honor, averaging 21 points per game this past season. The senior guard also snagged five rebounds and 3.5 steals and two assists per game. Schnurbusch surpassed the 1,000 career point plateau late in the season as well.
Moll earned a spot on the second team averaging 10 points per game and seven rebounds, to go along with 1.5 assists.
Riney was also placed on the second team averaging 8 points per game, 5 rebounds, and 1.5 steals.

Josie Allen of Festus won the conference’s Player of the Year honor averaging 17.3 points per game, 2.7 assists and over 3 steals per contest. Allen totaled nine points in the two matchups with Perryville this season, but did score over 20 points in nine games.
Hillsboro’s Andrew Hubbard won the Coach of the Year after leading the Hawks to the Conference title.
Blythe named to team
There was just one Pirate named to the All-Conference team as Ethan Blythe was named to the second team. Blythe averaged 14.5 points this season, to go along with nearly seven rebounds.
Arhmad Branch of Fesus won the conference player of the year. Branch averaged 22.3 points per game.
Windsor’s Ryan McArthy was named the Coach of the Year.
