The 4A All-Idaho high school basketball selections were released by the Idaho Statesman on Thursday, and Burley was well-represented.
Bobcats senior post Jemilynn Mahoney was a first-team girls selection, and her coach Roger Caresia was named the coach of the year. Burley senior guard Sydney Pilling earned second-team honors. Minico senior guard Saydi Anderson joined Mahoney on the first team, and Bishop Kelly senior guard Lydia Nieto was the girls player of the year.
On the boys side, a pair of Bobcats — senior guard Ryan Bagley and senior forward/post Andrew Ferrin — received first-team selections.
Twin Falls junior guard Faust Ystueta made the second team.
Preston, which beat Burley for its third straight state title and finished the season undefeated, had the boys player and coach of the year: Brayden Parker and Tyler Jones, respectively.
The All-Idaho selections, per the Statesman, are determined “by a statewide coaches’ vote. Coaches are asked to nominate their own players for their classification’s All-Idaho teams. They then vote on a ballot built from those nominations. The Idaho Statesman tabulates the votes and publishes the results.”
