Manhattan High finished as the undefeated Centennial League Champions, and won its second league championship in the last three years. Coach Scott Mall was also recognized as the League Coach of the Year for taking the team to state for the first time since 1991.

Onyeka Ehie, MHS’ senior point guard, finished on the second team. Ehie led the team in 3-pointers with 30 and was second in scoring with 8.6 points per game, and averaged less than one turnover per game.

Darby Price received Honorable Mention recognition. She was a first-year starter as a sophomore and was second on the team in rebounding and third in scoring

Jenna Crusinberry was chosen for the All League Defensive team.  Crusinberry, a senior and first-year starter, was also one of the team leaders in assists.
