Holzopfel is an All-Ohio first-team member
COLUMBUS — Buckeye Local senior Emily Holzopfel’s postseason accolades keep piling up, as she was named a Division III first-team All-Ohio member on Tuesday.
Along with the recent honor, Holzopfel, who finished her high school career with more than 2,000 points, was a first-team District 5 and Eastern District selection. She averaged 24 points per contest this season. Her 2,007 career points made her the eighth player from an Ohio Valley school to reach that number.
She played in 91 career games and accumulated 627 rebounds, 218 steals, 167 assists and blocked 41 shots. She also was an All-Ohio pick as a junior. As a senior, she scored 580 of her points and collected 204 of those career rebounds.
Holzopfel recently decided to take her talents to Wheeling Jesuit University and will compete in basketball and golf.
Away from athletics, Holzopfel was very active at Buckeye Local. She was part of the National Honor Society, a Merit Scholar, a member of the Foreign Language and Science clubs and took part in the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Program.
Staying in Division III, Harrison Central’s Sydney Starr was an honorable mention All-Ohioan. She averaged 13 points a game for the Huskies to go along with 11 rebounds and two steals.
The Division IV All-Ohio girls team also was announced. Toronto’s Kendal Thomas made the honorable mention list. She averaged 12 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 steals for the Red Knights.
Catholic Central’s Julia Zatta, the Division IV District 5 player of the year, was a special mention All-Ohio selection. In helping the Crusaders to their third-straight winning season, Zatta averaged 18.4 points per game, four rebounds, two assists and 2.3 steals.
Zatta’s teammate, Christine Dombrowski, made the honorable mention list. She averaged 15 points a game to go along with 5.3 rebounds, 4.8 steals and 4.9 assists.
