COLUMBUS â€” Medina County high school basketball didnâ€™t have its usual amount of names when the All-Northeast Inland District teams were announced Thursday, but there was still enough recognition to go around.
On the boysâ€™ side, Brunswickâ€™s Tyler Ferrell was the lone first-team pick in Division I.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore, who coming into Thursdayâ€™s play was averaging 14.7 points-per-game, was just one of two 10th graders named to the first team along with Massillon Jacksonâ€™s Mark Henniger.
Cloverleaf senior Parker Hewit racked up second-team honors after leading the Colts to their best season in 15 years.
The 6-foot-3 swingman currently leads the area with a 22.5 scoring clip and dropped multiple 30-point performances throughout the year, including a career-high 39 against Creston Norwayne.
Buckeye senior forward Logan Weiland rounded out the honors with an honorable mention selection in D-II.
Wadsworth senior Chrissy Pavlik highlighted a plethora of area girls who were honored as she picked up a second-team honor in D-I.
Pavlik, a 5-foot-6 point guard, ran the show for the 17-6 Grizzlies, who won their 17th Suburban League title in 18 years and advanced to the Akron Ellet District.
Kelsey Durichko, Brunswickâ€™s floor general, was a third-team pick. The senior helped the Blue Devils go 16-6 this season and advance to the Medina District.
Brunswickâ€™s Brooke Forsythe and Jess Mangus, Wadsworthâ€™s Britt Busson and Rachel DeMita and Cloverleafâ€™s Candace Andel were honorable mention choices, as was Black Riverâ€™s Chelsey Calhoun in D-III.
Rittman guard and Guilford Township resident Chelsea Raines, the granddaughter of Medina County Sports Hall of Fame member Ron Mack, was a first-team selection in D-IV. Raines averaged nearly 16 points a night for the Indians.
