With an Eastern Dakota Conference regular-season title, an East Region championship, and a runner-up finish at the state tournament, the West Fargo girls basketball team certainly had a season to remember.

And recently, two of their leaders were awarded for it.

Packers Erin Krogh and Lexi Lennon were both named second-team All State, as selected by members of the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

Since 2000, the Packers have had just four All State picks, and Krogh and Lennon were the first West Fargo selections since Ali Edwards was chosen after the 2005-06 season.

Krogh, a 5-foot-11 senior, averaged 9.8 points per game and shot 46.3 percent from the field including 48.6 percent from beyond the arc. She also was named to the all-EDC and all-state tournament teams, and averaged 12 points per game for ninth highest in the tournament.

Lennon, an all-EDC 5-foot-8 junior guard, averaged 12.2 points per game and 4.4 rebounds per game. Lennon was a points producing machine during the state tournament, averaging 18 points during the three-game stretch to lead the tournament en route to a selection on the all-state tournament team.

West Fargo finished with its best record in recent history, claiming the conference title with just one loss on the season at 17-1, and finishing 23-2 after state.

No WF boys earn All-State honors

Even after earning another state tournament berth, the West Fargo boys basketball team was snubbed during All-State selections.

Justin Heisler was the lone Packer to earn an award during the two-game stretch. The 6-foot-2 junior forward averaged 18.5 points per game, and was at least 50 percent from both field-goal and 3-point range at state.

West Fargo also had an All Conference selection in Brady Rotert. The 5-foot-9 junior guard averaged more than 10 points per game during the regular season, and 2.9 assists per game. He also was 41.2 percent from the arc.

The Packers were 10-8 in conference play to finish fifth in the EDC standings, and were 12-12 overall.
