Nobody scored more proficiently in Class 2A than Wilton's Emily Lange, and few if any teams possessed a better number two option than Kortney Drake.

The Wilton girls basketball seniors were named to the Class 2A Southeast all-district team released by the Iowa Girls Coaches Association Wednesday. In Class 3A, Louisa-Muscatine sophomore Kylee Sanders was recognized on the Southeast all-district team.

Lange and Drake led Wilton to a 21-3 record and set a school record for wins in their final season.

Lange was the top scorer in Class 2A at 22.6 points per game this season. She did it on 43.5 percent shooting and 34.5 percent from beyond the arc while also hauling in 6.3 rebounds per game.

The Davenport University commit reached double-figure scoring in all but one game this season. In fact, Lange topped 30 points six times, including a season-high 38 points against Durant in December.

Drake, a Kirkwood commit, averaged 15.9 points per game on 50.9 percent shooting and 49 percent shooting from beyond the arc. She also averaged 6.5 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.6 steals per game. Her 111 assists rank ninth in Class 2A.

Sanders, meanwhile, averaged 19.4 points and 5.4 steals per game for the Falcons (9-12). She ranked fifth in Class 3A in points per game.

The sophomore was the only player in Class 3A to top 100 steals, as her 107 thefts were 10 more than any other player. Sanders set a school record for steals in a season as well as in a game with 12 against Winfield-Mount Union.
