260 Girls Basketball: All-State

A few weeks ago the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association released its all-state honors for this past girls’ basketball season. Many players in the area got their rightful recognition for their outstanding performances this season. 

Two players were included in the Large School All-State:

Taylor Double, Huntington North

Double had an incredible season this year for the Vikings leading them to a 19-5 record. She averaged over 16 points a game for the Viks along with 6 rebounds and 2.9 assists. Her impact was also felt defensively as she got 2.4 steals and 0.5 a block a game. She was such a key piece for the Viking’s success this season and got well-deserved recognition for being on the All-State team.

Saniya Jackson, Northrop

Jackson is another great example of a senior having a fantastic year and leading her team to success. The Bruins were 19-4 this season and were even undefeated in SAC play as they claimed the conference title. Saniya herself averaged 14.4 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists while also being a top defender in the area with 2.8 steals and 1.3 blocks a game.

There was also one player from the area on the Small School All-State:

Madison Vice, Central Noble

Vice and the Cougars were outstanding this season with a 26-3 record that included both a sectional and regional title. Madison was an electric scorer this season averaging 18.4 points a game and also rebounding well with 6.4 a game and setting up her teammates as she got 5 assists a game. She also was disrupting passing lanes all season long with 3.7 steals a game

As for non-seniors they also got their rep in the Underclass All-State:

Three were even put on the Supreme 15 which is the highest honor for Underclass All-State.

Addison Baxter, Columbia City

Baxter completely emerged this past season being a star for the Eagles all year long. She helped lead this team to a 20-3 record while also going undefeated in conference play winning the NE8 with an 8-0 record. 

Kennedy Fuelling, Norwell

Fueling is another great star that will be returning to the NE8 next season. She is an elite scorer and a great facilitator and drove the Knights forward this past season leading them to a 21-4 overall record and a 6-1 record in conference play. 

Jordyn Poole, Snider

Poole is another electric scorer on this list as she averaged 16.7 points a game this past season while leading the Panthers to a 21-5 record, a 2nd-place finish in the SAC, a sectional title, and a regional title. Poole also distributed the ball very well getting 4 assists a game while getting 3.5 steals a game as well. Overall Poole was one of the most dynamic players in the state this season and still has another year left of high school basketball. 

There was also one more area player on the Underclass All-State for Large Schools:

Joh’nea Donahue, Snider

Donahue was very impactful this year on the offensive end for the Panthers but the thing that glares out the most when looking at her averages is the incredible 5.6 steals a game. Just to think about how each and every game she was stripping away five to six possessions from their opponents just shows how much value she brought to her team. That’s not even including her 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 4 assists a game.

Many seniors also were recognized and received an Honorable mention for their efforts this season, Senior Honorable Mentions:

Taylor Fordyce, Carroll

Nevaeh Jackson, Northrop

Overall the 260 was loaded with talent this past season and much of that talent got some deserved recognition with these awards. The amount of non-seniors who were recognized also shows how bright the future is for girls’ basketball in the area.
