Medina Journal-Register — A trio of repeat selections - Medina’s Alba Perez, Roy-Hart’s Olivia Kelkenberg and Wilson’s Jamie Curry - head the first team of the annual Niagara-Orleans All-League girls basketball squad.
Albion’s Eboni Taylor and Newfane’s Katie Shaw, both seniors, round of the first team quintet.
Perez, a four-year varsity player had a big year at both ends of the court for Medina averaging 17 points, 16 rebounds, 3 steals and 1 block per game.
“Alba is a tenacious player who gives her all on both sides of the ball. She is as intense as they come and will run through a wall if it will hep her team win,” Medina coach Ken Haak said. “She has made herself into the player she is today by playing year round and constantly working on her game. Alba is one of those players you hate to see go as you know she can never be replaced.”
Kelkenberg averaged 19.7 points per game and also grabbed off 115 rebounds.
“Olivia is a strong offensive and defensive player,” said Roy-Hart Athletic Direcor John Jablonski. “She gives 100 percent everyday, leads her teammates and is an outstanding athlete.”
Curry, a three-time first team honoree, scored 235 points and had a league leading 123 steals and 119 rebounds. She now holds the school single season and career (242) assist records and is second on the single season and career (336) steals lists.
Curry, who has a 90 average in the classroom, will be playing basketball at SUNY Fredonia.
“Jamie has had a remarkable career. She played varsity for four years and had four league and three sectional titles. She’s a player you can’t replace,” said Wilson coach Brian Baker. “She’s broken many schol records but even more than the stats is that she’s just a great person and leader. The sky is the limit for her.”
