2012-2013 Kane County Chronicle Girls Basketball All-Area Team

Liza Fruendt
Batavia, Jr., G

The Kane County Chronicle Player of the Year turned increased comfort and confidence as a team leader into a 19.7 points-a-game average and accolades as the Upstate Eight Conference River Division Player of the Year. Although the Bulldogs bowed out in a regional semifinal, she helped with an effort to get the team back in the gym the next day.

Amanda Hilton

St. Charles East, Jr., G

A Nebraska women’s soccer recruit, Hilton routinely brought her speed and attacking mindset from the pitch to the hardwood, averaging a team-best 14.4 points and 3.11 assists s game. Scored a career-high 33 points in an overtime loss at Geneva in January, and was a key cog as the Saints challenged the eventual UEC River champ Vikings for the conference crown.

Shelby Holt

Burlington Central, Fr., G

Holt hovered around a 12 points a game scoring average during BC’s breakout season, leading the team in scoring en route to a berth in the 3A Hoffman Estates Supersectional. Chronicle Coach of the Year Mark Smith lauded her poise and persistence. It was rare when Holt’s shot wasn’t on, but she remained calm and confident if that was the case.

Sami Pawlak

Geneva, Sr., F/C

Pawlak averaged a double-double – 13.7 points and 10.1 rebounds – a game, helping Geneva capture the UEC River title and the program’s fifth successive sectional berth. Bound for Nebraska-Omaha next season, Pawlak also harnessed a hustle and toughness that saw her tussling for most loose balls anywhere on the floor.

Sidney Santos

Geneva, Jr., F/G

After missing her first two high school seasons with separate ACL injuries, the 6-foot Santos started all 29 games for the Vikings, including a majority at point guard after an early-season injury to Michaela Loebel prompted a shuffled lineup. With a late-season scoring spark, Santos averaged 8.8 points a game while leading the Vikings with 4.2 assists a game.
