High school basketball: Girls all-county team

A banner season for Rowan County girls basketball included Carson’s perfect run to a state championship and undefeated conference seasons for Salisbury and North Rowan.

Four Rowan girls were honored by their leagues as player of the year or co-player of the year.

With Carleigh Perry honored by the Post as a county co-player of the year, that means five girls were recognized as a player of the year. That’s a record.

No fewer than 14 Rowan girls were honored as all-conference players by the coaches in their respective leagues. All-conference voting takes place prior to the postseason.

Those 14 girls are on the all-county team, along with North freshman Bailee Goodlett and West freshman Emma Clarke.
