H.S. GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Johnson earns Player of Year honor in SAC

Sarver, Ricks join teammate Johnson in All-SAC team; White named Coach of the Year

NEW WASHINGTON — Southern Athletic Conference Player of the Year Ashley Johnson was one of three Mustangs named to the All-SAC team on Wednesday. New Wash coach Terry Miller, who led New Wash to the outright SAC title in 2012-13, was also recognized as Coach of the Year for the sixth time.

Joining Johnson on the all-conference team were senior guard Kriston Sarver and junior center Caroline Ricks.

Johnson, Sarver, Ricks and Miller helped lead the Mustangs to the program’s first sectional championship in six years last Saturday. They will play for their first regional title since 2001 at West Washington on Saturday. New Wash (20-2) will face Vincennes Rivet (19-4) in Saturday’s regional opener.

Senior Leslie Beatty and junior Abby Ellis of Borden also made the 10-player All-SAC team, as did Henryville senior Jasmine Harrell and freshman Emily Hollis.

Rounding out the team are Kelsey Miller and Samantha Turner of South Central and Lanesville’s Brooklynn Keinsley.
