The recognition keeps rolling in for the Wilton girls basketball team.

After leading the Beavers to a school-record 21 wins, senior Kortney Drake was recognized by the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association as a third team all-state selection in Class 2A.

The teams were released Tuesday morning.

The individual honors haven't stopped for Louisa-Muscatine's Kylee Sanders, either. The Falcon's sophomore was voted to the second team in Class 3A after scoring 19.4 points per game to go along with 8.5 rebounds and 5.4 steals per game.

Sanders' 107 steals are 10 more than any other player in Class 3A this season. She set a school record for steals in a season and also set a single-game record with 12 against Winfield-Mount Union.

Drake, meanwhile, averaged 15.9 points per game and adding 6.5 rebounds and team-high 4.6 assists. She shot 50.9 percent from the field and 49 percent from beyond the arc.

Perhaps her most impactful performance of the season came in the Class 2A district finals against Mediapolis, where she scored 25 points on 9-16 shooting and also added seven rebounds and six assists.

The Beavers won that game 85-54.

Zoe Young, regarded as a top-30 recruit in the 2019 class, was selected as Miss Basketball in a vote among coaches and sportswriters. She averaged 24.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists for West Des Moines Valley. The Tigers finished the season 20-5.

The Mississippi Athletic Conference had five players voted to all-state teams led by North Scott's Grace Boffeli, who was recognized on the first team in Class 4A. Teammates Presley Case (second team) and Rylie Rucker (third team) joined her.

Pleasant Valley senior Carli Spelhaug was voted to the second team in Class 5A. Bettendorf senior Kylie Wroblewski was voted to the third team in Class 5A.
