Carr, Taylor get All-State honors

Hampshire’s Clower, Gordon part of many honorable mentions

ROMNEY, W.Va. — Lexi Carr and Lexi Taylor, who led Keyser to its first girls state basketball tournament in nearly a century, recently earned Class AA all-state honors in voting by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

Carr, a senior guard, was voted to the all-state first team, and Taylor, a junior forward, was named to the third team.

Keyser finished the season 24-3 and beating North Marion before falling to eventual champion Westside in the state tournament in Charleston. It was Keyser’s first state trip since 1924, and the victory over North Marion in the first round was the first state tournament win since 1919.

Carr, the school’s all-time leading scorer, averaged 17.7 points, 4.2 steals, 3.8 steals and 2.6 rebounds per game. She was also among the area leaders in three-point goals, with 28.

Taylor, who was the captain of the third team, averaged a double-double for the season with 14.1 points and 10 rebounds per game.

Petersburg senior Britani Bible received Class AA All-State honorable mention after leading the Vikings to a 14-7 season. Bible, who scored her 1,000th career point this year, averaged 17.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.

Carr, Taylor and Bible were also first-team All-Potomac Valley Conference, and Keyser’s Josh Blowe was named the PVC Division 2A Coach of the Year.

Hampshire pair earn

honorable mention

Hampshire’s Travis Clower and Ericka Gordon were named honorable mention Class AAA All-State by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.

Clower, a junior guard, was the Times-News boys scoring champion. He led all area players with 512 points and a 25.6 average for the Trojans, who finished the season No. 4 in the Times-News area poll with a 12-8 record. Clower led Hampshire in scoring, rebounds, assists and steals, and was second on the team in free throw shooting and field goal shooting, among players with 80 or more attempts.

For the season, he averaged 25.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2 steals per game. He shot 55 percent from the field (155 for 280) and 79 percent from the foul line (169 for 213).

Gordon, a sophomore, led the Hampshire girls to a 12-12 season, which included a three-game postseason winning streak that sent the Trojans to the state tournament. Hampshire beat Elkins, Lewis County and Spring Mills to win the region championship and a spot in the state tournament. The Trojans lost to top-seeded Parkersburg South in the first round at Charleston.

Gordon averaged 13.5 points and 6.4 rebounds for the Trojans.

Petersburg duo among Class AA selections

Petersburg’s Brian George and Grant Shanholtz, who led the Vikings to a 16-win season, were among several area players to earn honorable mention Class AA all-state honors.

George, a junior guard, averaged a double-double with 19.1 points and 11.4 rebounds per game in leading the Vikes to a 16-4 record and the No. 3 ranking in the Times-News area poll. He missed the postseason because of an injury.

Shanholtz, a senior guard, averaged 9.6 points, a team-high 5.5 assists and 2.4 steals. Both were also first-team All-Potomac Valley Conference, and Phil Canfield was the PVC’s Division 2A coach of the year.

Also receiving Class AA honorable mention were Keyser’s Ryan Streets and Frankfort’s Chase Detrick.

Streets, a junior guard, averaged 13.5 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists and hit 42 three-point goals for Keyser, which tied for No. 5 in the area rankings and finished 12-12.

Detrick, a junior guard, averaged 19 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 assists at Frankfort. He also made 46 three-point goals.

Streets and Detrick were also first-team All-PVC.

The PVC teams are listed above in the Scoreboard section.
