Mid-Prairie had three all-conference members this year after their run to state.

The Golden Hawks had two first teamers in Mallory McArtor and Mariah Swartzentruber.

McArtor had 241 points on the year for the Hawks and had 78 steals, while Swartzentruber led the team in points with 254, and had 155 rebounds, 62 steals and 25 blocks.

On second team Megan Redlinger inked her name with her 103 points, 95 steals and 92 assists.

Honorable mention for Mid-Prairie was Jess Butters.

All four girls on the all-conference list were seniors and will be taking off at the end of this year.

Head coach Marc Pennington said that these seniors were a special bunch, and it will be hard to see them go, but their legacy will live on.

“To have 12 kids in your program for four years is really [amazing]. They’ve just done so many things, we haven’t and one incident off the court or in the classroom, they’ve just been model students, model student athletes and just great people, and like I told the younger kids after the game on Tuesday, the foundation has been laid we’re not rebuilding next year, the foundation is there, it  is up to these kids to take it and go with it, and that is the challenge for these kids in the coming years,” Pennington said.

Mid-Prairie ended their season with an 18-7 record.
