Madonna’s Andrea Alimario and Oak Glen’s Ethan Travis, both seniors, have earned West Virginia second-team all-state honors.

Alimario earned the honor in the girls’ Class A portion. She averaged 16.4 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest. She shot 42 percent from the field (34 percent from 3-point land) and 72 percent at the charity stripe.

“The first thing that comes to mind is it’s a great honor for her to be recognized,” Madonna head coach Rodney Boniti said. “It’s not just a senior year accomplishment, but it’s also for her four years here. She was a co-captain for not just on the court, but off as well. She’s an exceptional student and very academically elite. She’s been a volunteer her whole life for nonprofits and is a very active member of the church.

“This award is not only for being a player, but for the person she is, as well. She’s the epitome of what we would like all of our student athletes should be. The coaching staff is so proud of Andy and the supporting staff around her.

“Andy always worked hard in the offseason, improving her skills. Basketball was 12 months a year for her. The coaches enjoyed how smart she was on the court and how quick she adapted and adjusted to each game. She was a coach’s dream.”

Earning honorable mention status for Madonna were Rachel Boniti and Kennedy Martin.

For the boys in Class A, the Blue Dons’ Gavin Dietrich and Evan Boniti made their way to the honorable mention section.

Travis made the second team as part of the boys’ Class AA portion. He averaged 18.3 points, 12.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists, two steals and 1.1 blocks per game.

“He really stepped up for us and had a great senior season,” Oak Glen head coach Jerry Everly said. “He worked on his 3-point shooting over the summer. He proved to us that he could make them, and he made 35 percent of them. He brought a lot of energy on the court with his rebounding. That’s going to be hard to replace, a 6-foot-5 guy who does that.”

The Golden Bears’ Sean Smith earned honorable mention. Also in that category are Weir High’s Luka Haught and Reed Reitter.

On the girls side in AA, Oak Glen’s Maggie Kovalcik and Alexa Andrews, along with Weir High’s Sophia Mikula, earned honorable mention.

In Class AAA, Brooke’s Hope Bowman and Gage Yost made the honorable mention lists.
