Many times in the past I have re-posted or referenced information from the Dabbelt Report, which covers girls basketball in the state of Ohio. Each year Jim Dabbelt releases his All Area teams for Divisions 1, 2, 3 and 4 as well as his choice for Ms. Basketball in the Miami Valley.
His All Area team for Division 2 is below and two Clinton-Massie players made the first team: Sydney and Kasey Uetrecht. Syd was also picked as his Division 2 Player of the Year.
You can see the entire D2 list on his blog page as well as explore his picks for all four divisions. Here is his first team for D2:
Sydney Bates, 5-8 Soph., Springfield Kenton Ridge- Came back from a shoulder injury to put up some great numbers this season. Outstanding shooter with three-point range. Had a great last half of the season, ending the season averaging 16.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, and nearly 80% from the line.
Maddie Bazelak, 6-0 Jr., Kettering Alter- super athletic kid who has a high basketball IQ and has been inquired about more than once from the coaches at the next level. Bazelak is also a volleyball standout for the Knights, but in basketball, she averaged 10.7 points and 5.7 rebounds.
Emma Bockrath, 5-8 Sr., Kettering Alter- The offensive leader for the powerful Knights squad has had a very solid junior season, near the top of every Alter category. Bockrath scored 15 points per game, while grabbing 4.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists and nearly three steals per game.
Sydney Brackemyre, 6-1 Sr., Clinton Massie- Came back from an ACL injury stronger than ever as a senior, leading Clinton Massie to a 22-0 regular season record. The Louisville-signee is the best D2 player in Ohio, and earns the Dabbs D2 POY. Averaged 15 points and nearly eight rebounds per game.
Carly Clodfelter, 5-9 Soph., Tippecanoe- I feel that Clodfelter is the premier sophomore in the area, and she had a productive season for the Red Devils. Great slasher, quick and solid in all aspects of her game. Scored 17 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals per game.
Stefanie Davis, 5-8 Sr., Springfield Kenton Ridge- Solid floor leader for the Cougars, who has a knack for coming up with the clutch shot at the right time. Hard nosed player who had a very solid senior year. Averaged 11.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists and nearly four steals per game.
Danielle Karns, 6-1 Jr., Eaton- Standing over 6-foot, Danielle can do a lot with the basketball. She can post up, step out and shoot the three, and has really improved her game. This college prospect averaged 11 points, 5.7 rebounds
Halee Printz, 5-10 Jr., Tippecanoe- really improved her game from last year to another level. Incredibly hard worker who can drain a three against a zone, or penetrate to the basket. Averaged over 19 points per game, with nearly 10 rebounds and over five assists. Headed to Toledo.
Maddie Schroeder, 6-1 Sr., Dayton Carroll- finished the season as the leading scorer in her conference, and has impressed a lot of the area coaches. Hard nosed post who gave Carroll the leadership they needed with several young players in the lineup. Averaged 17.9 points, 12.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.1 steals per game, shooting 60% from the field.
Chea Taylor, 5-11 Sr., Bellbrook- was the leader for a Golden Eagles team that still had a solid season after graduation last year. Defensive standout who saw her game improve this year. Chea averaged 16.1 points, over seven rebounds, and will be headed to Detroit.
Kasey Uetecht, 6-1 Sr., Clinton Massie- What a duo for the undefeated Clinton Massie Falcons, with her and Brackemyre. Kasey took care of the paint, and was a strong force underneath. She averaged 12 points and 8 rebounds per game.
Autumn Whirley, 5-6 Jr., Eaton- great year for Whirley, as the state’s best pure shooter in the 2015 class was key in leading Eaton to the SWBL title. Finished averaging nearly 13 points per game, with three assists. They call her “buckets”.
Player of the Year- Sydney Brackemyre, 6-1 Sr, Clinton Massie
Freshman of the Year- Braxtin Miller, 5-10, Kettering Alter
Coach of the Year- Ed Foulk, Springfield Kenton Ridge
