More than a month after her high school career came to a close, the accolades are still pouring in for West Fargo Sheyenne girls basketball standout Maggie Manson.
Manson was named a First-Team All-State player in the state of North Dakota by USA Today last week, following the close of a prep career in which she scored a program-record 1,599 points.
The University of North Dakota commit helped the Mustangs reach the Class A State Tournament in each of her final two years, and led them to the semifinals for the first time in 2019.
Fellow Sheyenne senior Christian Kuntz was also recognized by USA Today, making the publication’s All-State Second-Team. Kuntz, the first 1,000-point scorer in the history of the boys program, helped the Mustangs reach the state title game in 2018, before leading them to a program-record 17 conference wins during the 2018-19 season.
Lauren Ware was named girls Player of the Year, while her Bismarck Century coach Ron Metz won Coach of the Year honors. In boys, Class A state champ Jamestown got Player of the Year honors for Mason Walters and Coach of the Year distinction for Jacoby Lloyd.
