PAG METER COACH OF THE YEAR NOTES
This is always the toughest call because our Central Section Coaches do such a fantastic job with their team.
***Craig Campbell has won 8 straight Central Section Championships at Clovis West and it will be No 9 because the Golden Eagles will be even better in 2021. Craig is untouchable in the state and the Golden Eagles have to battle against all the private professional High Schools.
***Rashaan Shehee, won his 3rd straight Section championship with a 30-3 record and was named the state’s Division 2 coach of the year by CAL HI.
***Cory Fischer, won the Division 2 section Championship in his first year and Cory might have the only team that can compete with Clovis West
***David Kavern and the Porterville Panthers won the Division 3 Section Championship going 31-3 and playing tremendous team basketball
***Anna Almeida is the CEO of making Caruthers win! The Blue Crew beat the favorite Sierra Pacific for the Division 4 Section Championship. Almeida now has a record of 293-158 since 2005, 4 sections Championships, 1 state championship (2019) and a league winning streak at 76 thru this season, 5th best all-time in the Central Section and this with a home grown Blue Raiders team.
***Amy Bush and the Sierra Pacific Golden Bears didn’t win the Division 4 Section Championship, but she got her team fired up and won the Division 4 State Championship. The Bears won the D4 State Championship in 2018 and the D5 State Championship in 2017 along with winning the Section D4 Championship. 6 consecutive ESL Championships. Amy is now 140-29.
***Bobby Sharp pulled the upset and the East Blades knocked off the Strathmore Spartans at Selland to win the Division 5 Section Championship followed by the Division 5 State Championship.
See what I mean!! Pag Meter went with Bobby Sharp and the great story with East Blades!

One of the smoothest players in the state. Nikki is always under control and is so clutch. Last year if Nikki wasn’t red hot at Selland, the CW Section Championship win streak comes to an end. This year Nikki was a huge part of the Clovis West success in helping win their 8 straight Central Section Championship. Nikki was the TRAC MVP averaging 15 points and 3 steals a game. Nikki has verbally committed to play at UC Irvine.
PAG METER DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
***ROWAN HEIN, Senior, Clovis North Broncos
One of the hardest working players in the state and only knows how to go 100 MPH. Rowan can shoot, battle for the tough rebound, dive for loose balls, take a charge, the perfect team player! Rowan averages 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists per game. The 3-time Pag Meter All Star finishes her tremendous Broncos career with scoring 1,531 points and next stop will be at the University of Denver.
PAG METER CO-UNDERCLASSMEN OF THE YEAR
***ETOYAH MONTGOMERY, Freshmen, Clovis West Golden Eagles
She has the makings to be the best Golden Eagle of all time and that is saying a lot. The 6’1 freshmen has the most talent at this stage than any player to ever play at CW. If Etoyah played on any other team, she might average 25 ppg. The Cal Hi First team Freshmen All State player averaged 8 points and 6 rebounds per game.

***TAYLOR PACHECO, Sophomore, Clovis North Broncos and ***TYLER PACHECO, Senior, Clovis East T Wolves
Taylor played at Selland Arena in the open championship but the Broncos came up short.Tyler helped the T Wolves win the Division 1 Section Championship at Selland Arena. One thing I love what the TRAC did was schedule games for the Boys & Girls at different times so the Pacheco family can see the kids play. The Pacheco’s are a tremendous basketball family! Tyler finished strong and will leave with a Ring after scoring 12 points in the Championship game. Keep an eye on Taylor the next 2 years because she will be a superstar with her talent and work ethic.
