Mason City junior Megan Meyer and Bishop Garrigan senior Jenna Boelter were large reasons for their teams’ success this season, and on Thursday the pair of stars on the basketball court added a couple more accolades.
The Iowa Girls Coaches Association released its all-state basketball team on Thursday and Meyer was a first-team selection in Class 4A, plus Boelter was named to the first team in Class 1A.
Meyer’s 25.1 points per game helped the Mohawks back to the Class 4A state tournament. She added a single-season school record of 71 made 3-pointers, had 81 steals and 72 assists.
Boelter was a record setter herself with 96 3-pointers for the Golden Bears, and she averaged 20.3 points per game in helping Garrigan to the state tournament. She added 89 steals and 79 assists.
The North Iowa area put six players on all-state teams by the IGCA.
