Urusline’s Dayshanette Harris was the Mahoning Valley’s lone first-team selection in the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association’s Division II All-Ohio team.
In Division I, Austintown Fitch forward Sabria Hunter earned special mention honors.
Harris averaged 28.3 points, 7 rebounds, 5.5 steals and 4 assists for the 17-8 Irish. Ursuline went all the way to the D-II Austintown District final, but lost to then-undefeated Poland, 65-51.
This season, Harris became the all-time leading scorer for her school and Mahoning County. During a regular-season game on Feb. 11 against Warren Harding, Harris scored 27 points to surpass Tyra Grant’s record of 2,297 points. Grant played on the 2004 Division III state championship team and was a teammate of Irish coach Vannessa Dickson.
The senior guard will play at the University of Pittsburgh.
Hunter heads to West Point upon graduation. She leaves Fitch as its all-time leading scorer and rebounder with 1,700-plus points and 1,114 rebounds. She averaged 23.9 points, 14.2 rebounds and 2.1 steals.
Boardman’s Raegan Burkey, Canfield’s Serena Sammarone and Warren Harding’s Kamarah Bender earned Honorable mentions for D-I.
In D-II, Poland’s Sarah Bury was the only representative from the 26-1 Bulldogs on the All-Ohio team as a special mention. Bury averaged 15.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. She is the school’s all-time leader in steals.
Beaver Local’s Jenna Riccardo was a third-team selection in D-II. In her junior season, she averaged 23 points per game while becoming the Beavers’ all-time leading scorer. She finished the regular season with 1,216 career points. The Beavers’ season came to a close with an 84-39 loss to Zanesville Maysville in a sectional final.
