Lindsey Fencel, Civic Memorial
Fencel, a 5-foot-6 senior guard, was right in the middle of things as the Eagles won their first Carrollton Invitational championship the past weekend. It was Fencel's strong floor play that boosted the Eagles, 4-0 in the tourney and 25-2 - a school record for victories.
She joined teammates Megan Trost and Allie Troeckler on the all-tournament squad. Fencel, averaging 7 ppg, 6 assists and 4 steals, set single-season school records for most steals and assists. This fall, she will be attending Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and playing soccer for the Cougars.
Phyllip DeLoach, Alton High School
DeLoach, a junior, grappled his way to a second straight regional title last Saturday in Granite City. At 138 pounds he was the only Redbird to make claim to a title, moving his record to 41-1 with a 13-6 decision over Belleville West's Nathan Smalling in the championship match. The Redbirds also advanced juniors Nicholas DeLoach, Darian Pierson and Qiante Wagner to the sectional next weekend in Bloomington-Normal. The DeLoach brothers and Wagner each took No. 1 seeds to the Granite City regional; however, only Phyllip DeLoach claimed a title. The Redbirds claimed fifth place overall.
