2018-19 Girls’ All-Star Teams

The All-Star teams are broken down by classifications (AA, A, B, C, & D) for this year’s players.  After covering a bunch of full games this season, and watching countless hours of film, I’ve seen many of the players listed below. For the player’s that I haven’t watched in person I’ve relied on contacts in Section 2, other online content/stats/reports, game film, and custom player rankings that I’ve created.

What I’ve tried to do for the custom computer-generated player rankings is create something that will take into account a player’s scoring, her team’s overall performance, and factor in the percentage of her points versus her team’s total point total. Point statistics were used from to compile those numbers. With limited other stats available online (rebounds, steals, assists, etc.) I feel this is the best way to construct the rankings as it factors in overall team performance too.

Past computer player rankings, created for Section 2, have been in line with the top players in the Section as well as players that have moved on to play at the next level. In other words, I trust them as an independent opinion differing from my eyes and other research. All 3 (eyes, rankings, research) are factored in when creating the teams below.

(Players that scored around 10% or more of their team’s total points were ranked and considered for the teams. Over 400+ players fit the criteria. I also know that I’ve left off really good players. I’ve done the best I could when comparing a player’s impact on their team and factoring in their overall team strength.)

Players of the Year

Dolly Cairns and Kerry Flaherty of Saratoga

This year’s Player of the Year award is being shared by two teammates, Saratoga’s Dolly Cairns and Kerry Flaherty. These two players graded out as the top 2 players in Section 2 according to the computer rankings and most certainly passed the eye test if you had the pleasure of watching them play. The duo combined to score over 57% of their team’s total points on the season and led their team to a championship game appearance in Class AA. I just felt that the players were so even in their production and so valuable to their team’s success, that they both deserved the recognition. Both Cairns and Flaherty have the ability to get to the hoop and have limitless range on offense as well as sharing the ball with their teammates. Their quickness and smart basketball IQ’s help them cause problems for their opponents on the defensive end.


For each of the teams below the players are listed alphabetically by team. They aren’t ranked in any specific order for their specific set of 5 players. 6 teams for each Class AA, A, D. 7 teams for Class B & C as there are more teams.
