Athletes, performers earn region awards

Posted: Wednesday, March 23, 2005

Juneau-Douglas High School girls basketball players Mary Rehfeld, Kate Potter and Talisa Rhea were named to the Southeast-Class 4A girls all-conference team last weekend after the Crimson Bears won their fourth straight region title.

Rehfeld and Potter, both seniors, and Rhea, a sophomore, helped Juneau beat Ketchikan in Friday's region final to earn a trip to next week's state tournament.

Juneau boys basketball players Larry Cooper and Norman Zura were named to the Southeast-Class 4A boys all-conference team. The complete all-conference basketball teams, along with all of the other Southeast Conference-Class 3A/4A Tournament awards, are included below.

The Ketchikan boys won the Class 4A boys basketball region title, while Mount Edgecumbe and Petersburg finished 1-2 in Class 3A boys and girls hoops. In the traditional 3A/4A crossover championship games, the Ketchikan boys and Juneau girls beat their Mount Edgecumbe opponents. Metlakatla won the team sportsmanship award.

Petersburg and Juneau won top honors in cheer/stunt team competition, while the Juneau dance team received an excellent rating to lead Southeast schools.

In the free-throw contest on Saturday, Metlakatla's Aaron Brendible posted a perfect performance to claim the boys crown. Each player was given 25 shots from the line, and Brendible made all 25 tries. He then added one more before missing.

Petersburg's Lynsey Richards won the girls competition in a tiebreaker. Richards, Jill May of Craig, Tory Edwardson of Ketchikan and Talisa Rhea of Juneau each finished 22-of-25 after the first round. Then each contestant was allowed to shoot until they missed. May, Edwardson and Rhea each missed on the second or third try, but Richards - competing last - sank 12 in a row to win top honors.
