Barlow named to All-State first team

Boulder City girls basketball forward Whitney Barlow was selected All-State first-team and sophomore forward Megan Morton was chosen All-State second team in announcement March 3.

Both athletes were chosen as All-Southern Region first-team players.

Barlow also was the Sunrise League MVP and she and Morton were chosen All-Sunrise League first-team. Junior guards Alyssa Ybarra, Jana Williams and Katlyn Daly were selected to the All-Sunrise League second team.

The athletes helped lead the Lady Eagles to the Division I-A state championship, where they lost 44-34 to Lowry on March 1 in Reno. Boulder City finished 24-5 overall and won the Southern Region championship and the Sunrise League regular season championship.

“It is a great honor, but honestly I don’t think I deserved it alone,” Barlow said. “I had a great team and coaches beside me that never quit and they were the ones that created the plays. I just rebounded and shot when I was open.”
