Staff reports

A pair of Viking girls’ basketball standouts received Indiana Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA) All-State Honorable Mention honors.

Senior Rileigh Johnson was named an Honorable Mention for the 2018 IBCA/Subway Senior All-State team while junior Maddy Robrock was named an Honorable Mention for the 2018 IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State team.

Johnson led Huntington North in scoring this season with an average of 14.1 points per game. Johnson also pulled down 6.0 rebounds per game to go along with 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals per contest. The guard knocked in a team-high 40 three-point field goals at a rate of 46.5 percent.

Robrock, meanwhile, anchored the paint this season for the Vikings, finishing with an average of 12.7 points per game. The center also yanked down 6.6 rebounds and shot 56.5 percent from the field on the year.

Johnson and Robrock helped lead the Vikings to an 11-12 mark overall and a 4-3 record in the Northeast 8 Conference, slotting them in third in the conference.

The IBCA/Subway All-State teams are selected through a process organized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana.

Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass girls basketball players have earned IBCA/Subway “Supreme 15” All-State honors for 2017-18

For the fourth year, the IBCA also named Large School All-State teams (15 seniors, 15 underclass) and Small School All-State players (15 seniors, 15 underclass).

The “Supreme 15” is the top honor awarded, and players were voted to that group without regard to school size. The Large School and Small School all-state teams are secondary accolades.

In addition, 86 more seniors and 86 more underclass players were selected honorable mention all-state. The honorable mention laurels are awarded without regard to school size.

All IBCA-member head coaches have the opportunity to nominate players. A panel of 20 IBCA coaches — 16 from the current regional areas, three district representatives (one each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3) and the committee chairman — then meets to review the nominations, vote and finalize the selections.
