All-League, All-State basketball | Megan Shalvis receives highest league honor

Sylas Wright / Sierra SunTruckee senior point guard Megan Shalvis was voted All-Mount Rose League MVP.

Senior point guard Megan Shalvis topped the list of All-League and All-State selections from Truckee and North Tahoe, as she was voted Mount Rose League MVP while earning first-team honors in All-State voting.

The All-League awards were voted on by the coaches in the 2A-3A-mixed Mount Rose League. The 3A and 2A All-State awards were voted on by coaches whose teams played into the state championship tournaments.

The league champion Wolverines landed nearly their entire team on the All-Mount Rose League squad. Besides Shalvis’ MVP, Aleigh Krug, Aly Coronado-Smith, Sara Shontz and Sydnie English all were voted to the first team, while Kristina Tirman and Shannan Baumann made the second team and Krysta Murphy and Jackie Bolton received honorable mention recognition.

Shalvis and Krug retained their first-team status in 3A All-State voting, while Coronado-Smith was honored on the second team.

For the Lakers, sophomore point guard Elizabeth Buhler was voted to the All-League second team as Iren Rojas and Samantha Jeffers both made honorable mention.

The voting was a little less kind to the Truckee and North Tahoe boys.

Co-league champion Incline dominated the boys’ All-League selections with seven players total, including MVP Patrick Howe and Coach of the Year Brian Broaddus.

North Tahoe senior guard Brett Roberts was voted to the All-League second team while Truckee seniors Colin Christian and James DePew received honorable mention recognition.

Neither team made it to its respective state championship, and thus no players were honored on All-State.
