North Tahoe junior Jillian Argiris was honored with a selection to the Northern Division III All-League team, receiving honorable mention.

The All-League awards were determined by the league’s coaches.

Incline senior forward Kira Porter was named league MVP while her coach, Indra Winquest, was Coach of the Year after leading the Highlanders to the Northern regional title and state runner-up finish.

Porter led the Division III with 129 blocks in 21 games (6.1 blocks per contest) while also topping the state with 11.3 rebounds per game. Her 11.7-point scoring average ranked third in the league and fourth in the state.

Argiris, a versatile player who could handle any position on the floor, from point guard to the post, was a pillar of consistency on the young Lakers team.
