ALL AMERICAN AWARDS & ENGRAVING ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Chloe Presloid, Freshman, Punxsutawney

Presloid helped Punxsutawney to the District 9 Class 4A title and a 19-5 record by averaging 8.6 points per game and hitting 41 3-pointers. Running the point a lot during the year for the Lady Chucks, she shot 35 percent from 3-point range on the season and added 2.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.0 steals per game.


Tingley led Coudersport to a 23-4 record, the NTL title, the District 9 Class 1A title and the PIAA Class 1A quarterfinals this season. The Lady Falcons upset three-time defending champion North Clarion in the D9 championship game and then won a pair of PIAA playoff games to advance to the quarterfinals where they were scheduled to play District 10 champion Kennedy Catholic when the COVID-19 pandemic brought a sudden end to the season.

Making it more impressive was the fact Coudersport had just one player average in double digits this season and had to replace its leading scorer from a year ago, Shae Black.

The Lady Falcons won their final 11 games on the season.
