The Muskegon Big Reds had one played honored as honorable mention in senior Jamya Robinson.

Selections from Mona Shores included senior Olivia Sobczak, who led the Sailors offense averaging 11.1 points per game and sophomore Khaleeya Cook, who scored 9.4 points per game.

Olivia had a great career. She was a three-year starter and a three-year all-conference selection,” Mona Shores coach Mike Phillips said. “She has always put the team first, so I’m happy that she is getting some individual accolades.

Khaleeya is just scratching the surface of her potential as a basketball player,” Phillips said. “She is a high-energy player with a charismatic personality. She is always celebrating the success of others, so I’m happy that she is receiving some individual recognition.”

Junior teammates Sophia Hekkema and Ariel Walker were chosen from Reeths-Puffer. Hekkema averaged 14.8 points per game to go along with 9.3 rebounds per game. Walker averaged 13 points per game.

I’m really happy for these young ladies,” Rockets coach Rodney Walker said. “Sometimes with accolades you become a target, but I am extremely happy for these girls as juniors.”

Muskegon’s Robinson led Muskegon with 12.9 points per game and 8.3 rebounds per game. The Big Reds finished 11-9.

Coach Phillips was an honorable mention selection in the Coach of the Year voting. Phillips guided the Sailors to 19-4 season record that included a district championship. Shores fell to Rockford in the regionals.
