If there was ever any doubt who the two best teams were in the Southeast District in Div. IV girls' basketball, it was removed by the end of the district tournament.
Waterford's Lady Wildcats and Eastern's Lady Eagles dominated the district floor, defeating their district final opponents by a combined 133-69 score.
So, it makes sense then that those two schools would also dominate the all-district team as selected by a panel of media.
"It's nice to see both of us get girls recognized. One of us finished 18-2 and the other one 17-3. I think it's a great honor that the people finally recognized it," said Waterford girls' basketball coach Jerry Close.
Waterford and Eastern each had five players named to the all-district team while the Lady 'Cats Kim Barker and the Lady Eagles Jenna Burdette shared Player of the Year honors.
Close was named the Southeast District Coach of the Year.

Waterford has had plenty of outstanding players in recent years, but Close couldn't recall ever getting five girls on the all-district team.
"To get five, that's a great honor. It's the kids working hard, and having been successful for several years it's helped these kids to realize their goals and want to keep working hard to attain those goals," Close said.
Barker, a 5-foot-11 senior, averaged 11.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.5 steals per contest this season to share the Player of the Year honor with Burdette, who averaged 16.4 points a contest.
The lone senior on this year's team, Barker has played well in the biggest games.
"Kim's had a great year. She's done what we needed her to do all year long," Close praised. "It's obvious when you watch our games who our senior is."
Along with Barker, Waterford sophomore point guard Brooke Drayer was also named a first team all-district player as she recorded 14.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.9 steals per contest.
Junior forward Emily Brown was a second team all-district choice for the Lady Wildcats as she contributed 14.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.4 steals a game.
Kaitlin Pottmeyer was a third team selection for Waterford, contributing 6.7 points and 4.6 rebounds a contest while sophomore guard Hannah Offenberger was an honorable mention choice.
Close was named the district Coach of the Year for the second time in three seasons after guiding Waterford to its seventh straight Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division crown and sixth straight district title.
"We've had good kids all the way through. You don't win these awards without great kids. I think anybody could do that good of a job with the kind of kids we have," Close said.
The five Lady Wildcats led local selections to the all-district team.
Marietta had three girls and three boys honored by the district while Warren had three boys and two girls and Belpre had three girls and one boy. Waterford's boys had two players honored by the district.
Waterford senior Levi Porter was named a second team all-district selection by the media panel after averaging a double-double of 10.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. He also dished out 1.9 assists a contest.
The Wildcats' Aaron Miller was named an honorable mention choice after contributing 7.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists a contest.
The Lady Tigers, who were eliminated in the regional semifinal by Cambridge Tuesday evening, had sophomore guard Erica Dawson receive first team honors from the district while senior guard Maegan Grosel was a second team choice.
Amanda Brown was an honorable mention selection for Marietta.
"They work awful hard. They have fun at the game. They're very deserving of these awards," said Marietta girls' basketball coach Scott Cozzens.
Dawson led all Marietta players in scoring with 16.8 points per game while also contributing 2.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 4.0 steals a contest this winter.
"A lot of people didn't know about her, but especially after the tournament run she's had, it was pretty easy to see who the best player was on the floor down there Saturday (in the district final at the OU Convocation Center)," Cozzens said.
Grosel was the Lady Tigers' second leading scorer as she averaged 10.6 points per game as well as 2.0 assists and 2.3 steals.
Brown chipped in 7.9 points and 3.0 assists per game for Marietta as well.
On the boys' side for Marietta, the Tigers had senior Wes Riley receive third team all-district accolades while Tim Grosel and Jon Sewell were both honorable mention picks.
"Those three kids deserved it. They've improved a lot since last year. It's nice for them to be rewarded for their work during the season and the offseason," said Marietta boys' basketball coach J.D. Secrest.
Riley led Marietta in scoring with 13 points per game and also contributed 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists. Grosel, who scored 10.0 points per game, also contributed six rebounds and four assists.
Sewell, known for his defensive presence as his 6-foot-11 frame altered shots all season, averaged seven points, seven rebounds and four blocks a contest.
"I'm proud of all three of them and proud of all the guys on the team for what they accomplished," Secrest said.
The team who ended the Marietta boys' season, Warren's Warriors, also had three players named to the all-district team.
Senior Austin Cunningham paved the way for Warren with a first team all-district choice while senior Grant Venham was a second team all-district selection.
Justin Hilverding, another senior, was accorded honorable mention.
"That's what you get when you've had a career like they've had, not only this season, but their whole career," said Warren boys' basketball coach Blane Maddox.
Cunningham emerged this season as one of the area's most dynamic players as he averaged 19.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3.4 steals a contest.
"He can play more spots than the two guard. If he was 6-4, 6-5, there would be a lot of D1s looking at him," Maddox said.
The only thing stopping Cunningham from walking away with some bigger hardware in end of the year awards has been Chillicothe senior Jalen Ragland, as the Cavalier standout was named the District Player of the Year.
Venham chipped in 11.9 points and 8.4 rebounds for the Warriors to compliment Cunningham's scoring prowess. The versatile Venham, who has committed to play football for Ohio University, also contributed 1.3 assists and 1.8 steals a game.
"He (Venham) has really come on late in the season," Maddox said.
The Warriors and Cavaliers will meet for the third time on Friday at the OU Convocation Center for the district final, a game Warren has never won.
"We have to have the two-headed monster and a lot of guys to go with it," Maddox said.
The Lady Warriors had two players honored by the district as junior Allie Grace Proctor was a third team all-district selection and sophomore guard Jordanna Rauch was accorded honorable mention.
Struggling through a tough 11-11 campaign, the Lady Warriors didn't exactly blow up the scoreboard as Rauch led the team in scoring with just a 9.7 per game average.
Proctor averaged 7.9 points per game but also contributed 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.9 steals per game as she was constantly making the little hustle plays for the Lady Warriors this season.
Behind Waterford and Eastern, the Belpre Lady Eagles emerged as a surprise team in Div. IV this year as Belpre placed third in the TVC-Hocking and won a sectional title.
Junior Allison Flowers was named a first team all-district selection after averaging 16.2 points and 6.8 rebounds per game this winter. Flowers also hit 57 three-pointers on the year as one of the area's leading shooters. "One thing she has going for her is the outside shooting ability she has," said Belpre girls' basketball coach Scott Miller. "She was one of the leaders in the Mid-Ohio Valley in three-point goals."
Along with Flowers, the Lady Eagles had senior Kelsey Crislip earn third-team honors while senior Regina Leftwich was an honorable mention selection.
Crislip averaged 9.9 points and 2.9 assists per game this season while Leftwich contributed 8.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.7 steals a contest. "I think the team, as a team, responded this year. Any time in a team game you have some leaders, and those three kind of emerged as team leaders," Miller said.
Belpre senior Erik Waderker was the only Golden Eagle boy honored by the district as Belpre struggled through a dismal 7-14 campaign this winter.
Warren girls' basketball coach Ryan Werry, Waterford boys' coach Tom Simms and Belpre boys coach Dave Parsons could not be reached by phone Wednesday night.
