The 2019-20 girls basketball season saw three teams finish with a share of the Mountain Valley Athletic Conference championship.

And it also had two players share the MVAC Player of the Year honors.

Ashe County’s Hallie Treva and Alleghany’s Abigail Keesling shared the league’s top individual honors for the MVAC champion Huskies and Trojans, respectively.

Wilkes Central joined the fray  to create a tri-champion for the league.

In addition to two MVAC Players of the Year, Alleghany’s Kayla Carpenter earned the Coach of the Year honor.

All four Wilkes County schools had at least one selection on this winter’s all-conference first team.

Nine Wilkes County girls basketball players were named to the team, led by three selections apiece from Wilkes Central and West Wilkes. North Wilkes had two picks and East Wilkes had one honoree.

In addition to the Eagles and Blackhawks, Ashe County and Alleghany also had three selections each.
