ELC?team’s success earns more postseason awards for individuals
With success in the postseason, individual awards followed for the Estherville Lincoln Central Girls Basketball Team. The Daily News previously reported on ELC’s seven Lakes Conference All-Conference honorees and Alyssa Johnson and Emily Kirchner earning Class 2A All-Tournament Team honors.
Johnson also was named to the Class 2A Des Moines Register First Team and was named an all-region selection by the Iowa Basketball Coaches Association.
Johnson also was named first-team all-state by the Iowa Girls Coaches Association and the Iowa Newspaper Association while Kirchner earned second-team all-state honors by both organizations.
The Iowa Sports Connection named Johnson a second-team all-state selection while selecting Brad Leonard as the Class 2A coach of the year.
When Leonard learned of the honor at Monday’s girls basketball banquet, he responded, “Good players, make good coaches.”
