Secrist named First Team All-State in girls basketball

Pulaski County’s Keslyn Secrist has been named to the Virginia High School League’s Class 4 Girls All-State Basketball Team.

The junior Lady Cougar was previously named All-River Ridge and Region 4D player of the year.

Secrist was the only area player named to the All-State first or second teams. Several Lady Cougar opponents were named.

Millbrook High placed two on the first team, Avery O’Roke and Kennidi Rooks; Louisa County placed Sylvie Jackson on the first team and Olivia McGhee on the second team.

E.C. Glass’ Jordyn Wright-Goode was named to the second team.

State Champion King’s Fork had both the Player of the Year (Yasmine Brown, a 5’8″ senior guard) and Coach (Maurice Fofano).

Brown averaged 19.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 6.0 steals per game this season, while King’s Fork head coach Maurice Fofana guided the Bulldogs to a 21-3 record and the Class 4 state title with a 71-67 win over Millbrook in the finals. It is the first state basketball championship in program history.

Eight (8) players make up the first and second teams regardless of position. Only those players selected to all-region first-teams are eligible for selection to the All-State team.

Each All-State selection committee is composed of eight basketball coaches (2 from each Region).
