PAGMETER TEAM OF THE YEAR
The Grizzlies are the Division 2 state Champions and got hot at the right time. The best player in the Central Section Talia Maxwell also got hot at the right time. The Grizzlies beat Bonita Vista of Chula Vista 52-41 in the Championship game.
PAGMETER SMALL SCHOOL TEAM OF THE YEAR
CARUTHERS BLUE RAIDERS
Because the Blue Raiders are overachievers, the small school had to play in the division 1 playoffs because of this silly playoff format that crushes the small schools dreams. 95% of the Blue Raiders play multi-sports while most of the other D1 teams are not allowed to play other sports but the Blue Raiders still had to play in D1. The Blue Raiders should have been based in division 3 and played in division 2. The Blue Crew have won 102 straight league games and that is a Girls Central Section record. 10th straight league Championships.
PAGMETER PLAYER OF THE YEAR
TALIA MAXWELL-Senior-CENTRAL GRIZZLIES
Talia showed why she was the best player by far in the Central Section by dominating on both sides of the floor. Talia is 6 ‘1 and did it all in leading the Grizzlies to the Division 2 state championship in beating Bonita Vista 52-41. Talia scored 24 points along with setting a D2 state championship game record with 24 rebounds. It was an easy choice for Cal-Hi to make Talia their Division 2 state player of the year. Talia averaged 22 ppg and 10 rebounds and stay tuned where she plays next year.
PAGMETER BEST PLAYER IN THE PAINT
CANDACE KPETIKOU-Senior-ST JOSEPH KNIGHTS
It is so fun to watch Candace play because St Joes will post up with 6 ‘4 Kepetikou and teams can’t stop her inside. The post-up game is a dinosaur in today’s dribble drive world. Candace is a force in the middle and teams are not the same in the paint because of the 6’4 shot blocker. Candace averaged 14 points along with 11 rebounds & 5 block shots a game and the next stop will be playing at Washington State.
PAGMETER SMALL SCHOOL PLAYER OF THE YEAR
MORGAN “Mo Buckets”TRIGUEIRO-Senior-CARUTHERS BLUE RAIDERS
The all-time leading scorer at Caruthers finished with 2,012 career points and hit 281 career 3-pointers.
Mo played at a small school but would have been a star at any big school in the state.Mo is one of the best multi-sport athletes in the Central Section, was the Cal-Hi Division 3 player of the year along with being the CIF Scholar Athlete of the year. This year Mo led the Central Section with hitting 85 3-pointers & points with 881 and averaged 25 points per game. Mo set 17 school records and leaves with a career record of 103-19, 44-0 in league. Mo helped the Blue Raiders win 2 section championships in basketball and last year pitched the Blue Raiders to a Division 5 section championship along with a state championship.
Next stop will be Mo’s Junior College of her choice.
PAGMETER Side note, Hey Fresno State, you might want to bring in some local talent instead of overseas players especially with nobody going to the Save Mart Warehouse to watch games. I’m no fanolgist, but I’m thinking local players will put butts in seats especially on a team that dreams of winning 15 games.
PAGMETER COACH OF THE YEAR
CRAIG CAMPBELL-CLOVIS WEST GOLDEN EAGLES
Coach C is a true legend coach and this year he coached his ass-off! The Golden Eagles have won 11 straight Central Section Championships and this year’s team is not one of the great Golden Eagles teams out of the eleven.This team was not a talented offensive bunch but Coach had them playing amazing defense with suffocating pressure that teams simply couldn’t handle. The Golden Eagles finished the year at 30-2 and what’s scary is the Golden Eagles are very young.
PAGMETER side note-With about 100 fans that attend Fresno State women’s basketball games at the Save Mart Warehouse, it’s time to offer the coaching job to Craig Campbell!! DUH!
Fresno State basketball is as exciting as 5 week old Halloween candy. It’s time for a change and Campbell could put FSU on the map.
PAGMETER CO-UNDERCLASSMAN OF THE YEAR
ELIZABETH JOHNSON-Freshmen-ORCUTT ACADEMY SPARTANS
A star is born with Liz Johnson who dominated in the paint averaging 22 ppg, 14 rebounds a game and keep an eye on the Spartans the next 3 years because they will be the team to beat.
SADIE SIN-Freshman-CLOVIS COUGARS
This super freshman who plays like a senior can shoot the 3-pointer, drive to the hoop, plays very good defense, can handle the ball and is a tremendous passer. Sadie gets it done in the classroom and already is on plenty of college radar.
