The St. Vincent Indians girls basketball team won a district championship for the first time since 2011. So, it makes sense that the team should get some recognition when it comes to postseason honors.
They did just that.
St. Vincent garnered three all-district honors when the awards were handed out. Sophomores Allie Patrick and Haley Emmendorfer, along with freshman Lana Adams received recognitions to the Class 2, District 3 team.
Patrick earned the top award within the conference as Player of the Year. Patrick was instrumental in St. Vincent’s success as she averaged 16.8 points, which led the team, and 3.1 rebounds per game. She also shot 38 percent from beyond the three-point line.
Patrick set the school record for points scored in a season by a single player (471)
Freshman guard Lana Adams was second on the team averaging 13.2 points per game, and led the team shooting 46 percent from the field on the year. Adams was the leading rebounder for the Indians with 5.8 per game.
Emmendorfer averaged 9.3 points and nearly three rebounds per game.
Oran’s Haley Webb won the District Player of the Year. Webb scored 29 points for the Eagles in the district championship game against St. Vincent.
The Indians went 24-4 this season.
SV boys All-District
The St. Vincent boys reached the district championship game much like the girls, but they fell to Principia. That doesn’t mean that the team didn’t have any postseason honors when it came to the district.
Three Indians were named to the Class 2, District 4 all-district team when it was announced. Blake Monier, Simon Unterreiner and Grant Abernathy each received recognition.
Senior guard Blake Monier earned a spot on the first team after leading St. Vincent with 15.8 points per game on the season. Monier also pulled down 5.2 rebounds per game as well as dished out 2.6 assists per game, which led the team. Monier also shot 32 percent from beyond the three-point line. He led St. Vincent with 3.6 steals per game as well.
Senior Grant Abernathy also earned a spot on the first team after averaging 12 points per game and passing out 2.43 assists per game.
Abernathy was the three-pointer sharpshooter for the Indians, shooting 44.5 percent (69-155) for the year. He also shot 83 percent from the free throw line (50-60).
Simon Unterreiner was the final representative for St. Vincent as he earned a spot on the second team. The senior forward averaged 12.5 points per game, and pulled down 7.5 rebounds per game.
Unterreiner led the Indians shooting 55.4 percent from the field.
The Indians finished 16-12 this season.
Principia guard Jaylen Edwards won the district player of the year.
Edwards averaged 16 points per game and shot 40 percent from three-point range.
Principia fell to Salisbury in the Class 2 State Championship this year as the team finished 25-7.
