As our last preview article about the Prairie State Conference I am going to make my picks for All Conference players and even though the conference doesn't name an MVP, I will make my selection. While it again does not follow the format of the conference, I will name 5 All Conference players and pick an MVP as the 6th. Here we go.

  • All Conference selection, Sami Kasting of Metro East Lutheran. As has been noted before, the departure of Ellen Schulte will make Sami the returning leading scorer and the leader of this team. I believe she is more than capable of increasing her output of 10 points per game from her Junior season. I look for Sami to score more and lead MELHS to a 3rd place finish.
  • All Conference selection, Kayla Brantley of East Alton/Wood River was an All Conference selection as a sophomore and had a good summer playing AAU ball and working on her game. She is a good 3 point shooter and is working on finding other ways to score. She should get more playing time this year as the rotation thins out a some. This combined with her game
