Another list of post-season basketball honors was recently released as the District 14 Coaches Association named their All-District girls and boys teams. These honors usually look different from some of the other post-season lists as it is voted on only by coaches who are members of the District 14 Coaches Association, representing the Southeast District.

For the 2015-16 season, no less than a dozen student-athletes from Adams County were recognized by the District 14 coaches, beginning with Division III girls, where North Adams senior guard Staci Dinsmore was named to the Second Team. There were no countians on the First or Third teams but Dinsmore’s teammate Avery Harper, along with Peebles’ Jessica Sowards and West Union freshman Alexa Pennington all received Honorable Mention.

For Division IV girls, Manchester senior Morgan Johnson received Third Team honors, with freshman teammate Darrington White named Honorable Mention.

The Southern Hills Athletic Conference was well-represented as a whole on the girls’ All-District squads. In Division III, Lynchburg’s McKayla Binkley was named to the First Team, with teammates Hannah Binkley and Peyton Scott named to the Second Team, and Lady Mustang senior Ali Little named to the Third Team.
