Tague, Shaw Earn TRC All- Conference Hoops Honors
Reining Tri-Rivers Conference Most Valuable Player Kaitlen Stump was in consideration for back-to-back honors and Knox County’s Lorrie Peters led the Lady Eagles to the TRC crown with a perfect 7-0 record, but ultimately the league coaches selected Milan’s Carly Bohle as the 2009-10 TRC MVP.
All three girls were unanimous first team all-conference selections along with Quinsie Gall of Brookfield. The Tri-Rivers Conference will bid farewell to all four seniors. The lone underclassman to make the first team was North Shelby’s Jessica Linberger, a junior.
Named to the TRC all-conference second team was Scotland County’s, Ashley Tague. The junior forward led the Lady Tigers scoring 11.6 points per contest. She also was tops on the team with 95 steals and 76 assists and was second leading rebounder grabbing just over five boards a game.
She was joined on the second team by Brooke Wheeler, a senior from Clark County; Lesa Ford, a junior from Schuyler County; Stacey Leckbee, a junior from Knox County, and Jordan Dunlap, a sophomore from Milan.
The TRC all-conference third team consisted of Megan Brennan, a sophomore from Clark County; Jamie Shaw, a junior from Scotland County; Alyssa Elson, a sophomore from Brookfield; Becca Mallett, a senior from Knox County; and Giovonna Caponetto, a junior from Milan.
Shaw was Scotland County’s second leading scorer at 11.3 points a game and led the squad with 7.4 rebounds per contest.
Knox County’s John Weaver was named the TRC Coach of the year after leading the lady Eagles to the conference crown.
Knox County finished 7-0 followed by Schuyler County (5-2), Clark County (5-2), Scotland County (4-3), Milan (3-4), Brookfield (3-4) Putnam County (1-6) and North Shelby (0-7). The 2009-10 season marked the final year for Clark County and Brookfield in the TRC.
