Three Indians named all-conference


There’s little doubt that the St. Vincent girls’ basketball team had the best season in school history. The Indians piled up the wins and surpassed the school record for victories (24), and set other records including total points (1,598). The team also earned the program’s first district title since 2011.
It only makes sense that the Indians should garner some postseason awards.
That they did.
Allie Patrick, Cailyn Prost, and Lana Adams were named to the Jefferson County Athletic Association-Small School All-Conference team when they were announced.
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.
Prost averaged 10.5 points per game to earn a spot on the second team and averaged 3.8 rebounds.
St. Pius’ Aaron Portell was named the coach of the year after leading the Lancers to a perfect 5-0 mark, including defeating St. Vincent 67-58 this season. The Lancers finished 23-4.
The Indians will return every player from this year’s squad next season.
