2023 Winter All-Conference teams and awards announced at spring pep assembly



Senior Ian Thorton blows by a defending player. Thorton not only made first team All-Conference, he also scored his 1000th point this past season.

At the pep assembly this past Thursday, May 11th, Dr. Ayotte announced winter sports’ all-conference teams along with some other club and sports distinctions.

What does it mean to be named All-Conference?

To be named the top athlete in your sport, the opposing team’s coaches must choose you; this is initiated by each coach nominating players from their team. A ballot is then sent to all coaches to vote for the best players, but coaches are not allowed to vote for players from their team. These selections are chosen from the South Central Athletic Association athletes, or SCAA, consisting of Bayless, Brentwood, Crossroads, Hancock, Maplewood, and Valley Park.
