IHSA 2016 All-State 1A & 2A Girls Basketball TeamsPosted:
All-state teams for 1A and 2A girls basketball were released Thursday. There were a number of familiar names this year - 10 of the 20 first and second team selections were also on all-state teams in 2015.
That includes Central A&M Guard Ryan Dooley, who was named to the 1A second team for a third consecutive year. Dooley's Raiders begin play in the IHSA state semifinals Friday, seeking their second straight 1A state title.
Cissna Park senior Addison Stoller also made her second straight appearance on the 1A second team.
Cissna Park's season came to an end in the sectional finals this season, thanks in part to a pair of underclassmen from Danville-Schlarman Academy. Sophomore Arieal Scott and freshman Anaya Peoples were named to the 1A first team, after leading the 2nd-ranked Hilltoppers to a super-sectional appearance.
In the 2A, Paxton-Buckley-Loda senior Kellyn Maynard made the 2nd team.
