2010-11 Girls All-District team
Beka Bellhy, Fort Cherry
Versatile playmaker and two-time first-team pick led PIAA Class A quarterfinalists with a 14.4 scoring average and scored 13 or more points in all but one of Fort Cherry’s seven postseason games.
Emily Hansen, Canon-McMillan
The first Girls Player of the Year from Canon-McMillan and only the Big Macs’ second 1,000-point scorer averaged 16.6 points in her final season. A two-time first-team selection.
Jessie Merckle, Fort Cherry
Possibly the area’s most improved player and quickest point guard, Merckle averaged 11.1 points per game and frequently hit double figures in assists and steals.
Geena Shrader, Monessen
Shrader, a two-time first team selection, topped 1,000 points during Monessen’s playoff run and she averaged 16.1 for a team that finished 25-2 and returns every starter next year.

Temple accomplished something no girls player from Washington County did since Burgettstown’s Jamie O’Donnell in 1998 – she led the WPIAL in scoring. Temple averaged 21.9 points.
Shannon Flament, Charleroi
Flament missed two games for Charleroi and her absence led to one of the Cougars’ two losses. She averaged 14.1 points.

Morgan Iacovino, Charleroi
Iacovino, who will play in the Roundball Classic, anchored Charleroi’s offense and defense. She averaged 12.7 points.
Jocelyn Lucsko, McGuffey
