The girls basketball season is winding to a close, with the state finals coming up at the end of the week. All local teams were eliminated by last week, but there were still a handful of postseason honors headed their way.

District champions Western Michigan Christian were the most decorated team for their share of the Lakes Eight title and their 17-2 season. Three Warriors were named as first-team all-conference players: senior Taylor Folkema and junior sisters Kyla and Maddie Wiersema.

The other members of WMC’s starting five were named to the second team, as junior Libby Mast and senior Kelcea Waller made the list. Jeremy Goorman was also named as the conference’s top coach.

Grand Haven’s Zoe Spoelman was the lone Buccaneer honored in the OK Red, as the junior was named among the honorable mention. The junior was the team’s leading scorer on their way to a sixth-place finish in one of the state’s toughest conferences.

Spring Lake rounded out the honorees with a pair of OK Blue all-conference players. Junior Jennifer Judge was named to the first team for a solid season, while junior Meah Bajt was named among the honorable mention. The Lakers’ 6-7 record in conference play was good for fourth place.

The Tribune will feature all-conference players from other winter sports throughout the week.
