Fromm Closes Out Career With All-State Accolades
The basketball season has been over for nearly a month, but the post-season honors continue to roll in for one Scotland County standout. A tremendously successful career was capped off for Ali Fromm when she was named to the Missouri Class 2 All-State team by the Missouri Sportswriters and Sports-broadcasters Association.
Fromm was one of just 10 players in Missouri to earn the honor after leading Scotland County to just its second district title in the history of the school’s basketball program. She averaged 16.3 points a game despite often facing double teams and box-and-one schemes aimed at limiting her production. She went over the 1,000 point mark in her four-year career and is one of the leading three-point shooters in school history.
Joining Fromm as first-team all state honorees were:
Michelle Anderson, 6-3 sr., North Platte; Mikal Bencomo, 5-1 sr., Clopton; Sara Bos, 6-0 sr., Billings; LaChelle Livingston, 5-5 jr., Metro: St. Louis; Lauren Witherspoon, 5-5 sr., Metro: St. Louis; Caitlin Shouse, 6-0 sr., Greenfield; Kelsie Hargus, 5-9 jr., Marion C. Early; Jennelle Freeman, 5-6 soph., Tarkio; Hailee Deckard, 5-10 soph., Naylor.
Earning second-team honors were:
Brandie Roberts, 6-1 soph., Cairo; Krista Duncan, 5-6 sr., Russellville; Brittany Dodson, 5-5 jr., Metro: St. Louis; Alicia Wheeler, 5-10 sr., Clopton; Brittany Percival, 5-9 soph., Hartville; Wendy Howell, 5-9 sr., Polo; Sara Hoskins, 5-11 sr., Van Buren; Kara Rosebrough, 5-9 soph., Pierce City; Kathleen Scheer, 6-1 soph., New Haven; Kasey Brooks, 5-9 sr., Crest Ridge.
The final poll for Class 2 girls was:
1. Metro: St. Louis 29-3; 2. Clopton 29-3; 3. Marion C. Early 27-5; 4. North Platte 26-5; 5. Russellville 25-4; 6. Blue Eye 24-6; 7. Crest Ridge 24-5; 8. Naylor 23-6; 9. Pierce City 24-5; 10. Tarkio 23-5.
