The latest news and analysis on high-school sports around the Seattle area

Girls All-State teams, POY

Here are The Seattle Times’ All-State girls teams (first and second) for the 2008-09 season. Again, like with the boys, there were a lot of tough choices. Some will argue that a player should have been first team instead of second, or vice versa, or not in the top-10 at all. Some high-quality players were left off. But with only 10 spots, that’s bound to happen.

But, just like in the situation with the boys, we had little trouble going with Kentwood’s Lindsey Moore as the overall Player of the Year, regardless of classification. You can read more about her later today in a story I wrote as the person spearheading the girls selections.

Have a look and let us hear about it:

First team

Lindsey Moore, Kentwood, 5-10, Sr., G, 15.7

Savvy, unselfish playmaker, who has signed with Nebraska, led Conquerors to first championship.

Katie Benson, Snohomish, 6-1, Sr., F, 17.1

SPU gets a big-time, versatile player in record-setting Benson, who took Panthers to the title game.

Carly Noyes, Moses Lake, 6-5, Sr., F, 17.9

Returning all-state pick, headed for WSU, has great hands and can take over games inside.

Yaz Fuller, Kennedy, 5-8, Jr., G, 15.5

Do-it-all guard can score in bunches and earned MVP honors as Kennedy captured first state crown.

Jordan Loera, Moses Lake, 5-8, So., G, 15.3

Turned heads as a freshman with her assortment of skills and already has college recruiters beckoning.

Second team

Brittany Gray, Bainbridge 5-11, Sr., F, 17.8

Prolific scorer and relentless rebounder committed to Gonzaga as a junior.

Jeneva Anderson, Lewis and Clark, 5-11, F/P, 12.2

After being part of two championship teams, UW recruit helped Tigers place fifth this season.

Daidra Brown, Kennedy, 5-7, Sr., G, 15.2

High-energy guard caused problems at both ends of the court for 3A state champions.

Mercedes Wetmore, Auburn Riverside, 5-8, Jr., G, 15.4

Smooth shooter and passer has helped Ravens earn three state trophies, including two 3A titles.

Marcisa McMillan, Lindbergh, 6-2, Sr., C, 21.5

Four-year starter was a constant triple-double threat on a team with few other weapons.
