Post-Gazette story

Schuylkill Co. Republicanherald story:
In Class AAAA, New Castle's Jaleesa Sams makes her third all-state appearance and her second on the first team. Ashley Gale, a La Salle recruit, was chosen as the player of the year after leading Cheltenham to the state title and scoring 27 points in the PIAA championship game.

Like Gale, Council Rock North's Addie Micir makes the move from the second team a year ago to the first team. They are joined by Neumann-Gorretti's Gloria Brown and Abington Heights' Becky Burke. Brown was the Philadelphia Catholic League South Division MVP and has signed with North Carolina State. Burke, a junior, has committed to South Carolina.

Luann Grybowski was chosen as the coach of the year after guiding New Castle to the PIAA District 7 (WPIAL) championship and a 28-2 record.

The Class AAAA second team includes six Division I recruits.

Claysburg-Kimmel's Lacey Claar was voted the Class A player of the year after setting a Blair County scoring record of 2,187 points and leading the Lady Bulldogs to the PIAA semifinals. The first team includes Dayton signee April Austin of PIAA runner-up Pittsburgh North Catholic, while Mark Moschella of PIAA champion Bishop Guilfoyle picked up coach of the year honors.

The all-state teams were selected following two rounds of nominations and voting by sports writers and broadcasters.
