The Associated Press announced its 2019-20 all-state boys and girls basketball teams for all classifications on Wednesday, and 22 regional athletes were named to the lists.
Libertys Maisie Burnham, who signed with Eastern Washington, was selected as girls 2B state player of the year one of four players of the year within the region.
Joining Burnham as AP POY are Clarkston senior Tru Allen (boys 2A), Odessa senior Ryan Moffet (boys 1B) and Curlew senior Korin Baker (girls 1B).
Burnham and Moffet the state career scoring record-holder helped their teams to state titles. Allen guided Clarkston to a state runner-up finish and Bakers Cougars finished sixth at state.
All four players were scheduled to participate in The Spokesman-Review High School Basketball Showcase.
Its pretty exciting, Burnham said. Its quite an honor, but Im more excited about our team accomplishment, you know.
Burnham is the latest in the extended Soliday family to receive the honors.
Her grandfather, Ron, is one of four brothers who helped put Eastern Washington basketball on the map.
Theres some pretty high expectations in the family, for sure, Burnham said.
Her mother, Cheri (Soliday) Burnham, won a title at Reardan in 1988, an achievement that eluded her father Blaze and brothers Match and Chase.
I wanted it for so long, Maisie Burnham said of the state title. I know me personally, my dad and my brothers we have had troubles reaching that goal. My mom did it and so I was the last chance to follow my moms footsteps.
It definitely feels good to bring that home, not only for us, but for Liberty.
Burnham praised teammates Aleena Cook (honorable mention), Kendyl Fletcher and Delaney Goodwin, among others, as instrumental in the title chase.
I think it really showed you cant win with just a few players. Youve got to have the whole team, and I think that we really honed in on that and I think thats what made us pretty successful throughout the season, and it helped us in final game for sure.
Several Greater Spokane League players received honors.
Gonzaga Prep senior Liam Lloyd was named to the boys 4A first team. GSL Player of the Year, junior Tyson Degenhart, was selected to the boys 3A first team.
This is Degenharts second consecutive all-state selection.
I think it just shows the amount of work someone has to put in the offseason, he said. I think it just motivates me to keep putting in more work and getting better each day.
Degenhart was selected to the State 3A all-tournament team, despite Mt. Spokane being eliminated in a first-round game.
I thought that was super cool, he said. I was totally surprised when those all-tournament teams came out.
Degenhart said he was honored by the all-tourney and all-state selections.
Its nice to have some respect over on the West Side, because most of the time on the East Side of the state you dont get as much respect from the West Side. It just seems like thats just how its been.
He was also impressed at the volume of Eastern Washington players on the all-state teams.
Thats a lot of players, he said. I think, as time goes on, the East Side just keeps getting better and better and I think that number will continue to rise.
Junior MJ Bruno, from girls State 4A champion Central Valley, was named as honorable mention. GSL Player of the Year, senior Jayda Noble of Mt. Spokane, who signed with the University of Washington, was a 3A first-team pick.
