COLUMBUS — St. Wendelin’s girls basketball team has Kamryn Troike back for two more seasons.
And if the 2013-14 season was a preview of what’s to come, the Mohawks can be nothing but delighted.
Troike’s breakout season was rewarded Tuesday with a spot on the Associated Press Division IV All-Ohio second team.
Troike, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, proved to be a formidable challenge for opponents to contain as she averaged 20.7 points and 14 rebounds en route to being named the Midland Athletic League player of the year and a first-team selection in District 6 Division IV balloting.
Also in Division IV, 5-11 Arcadia junior Molly Glick gained special mention after averaging 17.6 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.9 steals, 3.6 assists and 1.2 blocked shots; and 5-5 New Riegel junior Kara Scherger received honorable mention after averaging 13.5 points and 4.2 steals per game.
In Division III, 5-9 Elmwood senior Kristen Curtis, the Northern Buckeye Conference player of the year, gained honorable mention. She averaged 16.2 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest.
