Johannesburg-Lewiston junior Abby Schlicher was named honorable mention in the 2012 Associated Press Class C All-state basketball team. “I’m very happy for her; she deserved it,” said J-L coach Heather Huff. “She’s a hard worker and puts in a lot of time and hours in during the off-season to make herself better.”
Schlicher posted high numbers this season for the Cardinals, averaging 14.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, 7.3 steals, 3.3 blocks and 4.3 assists per game. “She became more of a shooter towards the end of the season, but part of the reason why her points aren’t as high as they could be is because she does it all. She is happy to do that,” Huff said.
Although the Lady Cards fell short of a District title this season, they will return all but two players, including Schlicher, to next year’s squad.
