Local duo earn all-state honors
Peters Township senior Emily Correal and Washington High School senior Jocelyn Floyd earned selections to the Associated Press Pennsylvania girls all-state high school basketball teams on Tuesday.
Correal, a three-time Observer-Reporter Girls Player of the Year, made the Class AAAA first team. She scored 1,808 career points to go with more than 1,200 rebounds and 300 blocks. Correal, a William & Mary recruit, was a third-team all-state selection as a junior.
In only two years at Washington, Floyd established herself as one of the school's great basketball players and she was named to the Class AA second team.
A Duquesne University recruit, Floyd led all local players in scoring (20.8 ppg) and she nearly averaged a triple-double (points, rebounds, steals) on the year.
