Winter earns All-District Honors

MONONA — MFL MarMac sophomore Bailey Winter has been recognized as one of the top girls’ basketball players in northeast Iowa, having been named to the Iowa Girls’ Coaches Association Class 2A Northeast All-District team.

Winter was the top scorer on a Bulldog team that nearly doubled its victory total from the year before, finishing with a 17-6 record and the Upper Iowa Conference’s larger school conference title. The 6-foot guard averaged 12.5 points per game while also leading the team in assists (69), steals (60) and blocked shots (43) and ranking second on the squad with 121 rebounds.

The Upper Iowa Conference All-Conference team will be announced later this week, once Kee High’s state tournament season has concluded.

Other members of the 2A Northeast All-District team included Cascade’s Nicole McDermott and Abbie Ruggeberg, Central Springs’ Kaylee Parks, East Buchanan’s Erica Hoffman, Jesup’s Emily Treptow, Maquoketa Valley’s Sam Wall, Saint Ansgar’s Elizabeth Jenkins, Sumner-Fredericksburg’s Cassidy Pagel and Wapsie Valley’s Erin Riordan. Sumner-Fredericksburg’s Kevin Bergman was voted the district’s coach of the year.
