Coaches, Democrat
Pick Top Players

By Rob Potter
SULLIVAN COUNTY — April 19, 2005 – In the interest of naming a 2005 Sullivan County Democrat Girls’ Basketball All-Star Team, Democrat staff members recently contacted the varsity girls’ basketball coaches at local high schools and asked them to choose a Most Valuable Player, a five-player first team of all-stars and five-player second team of all-stars.
Those coaches were allowed to select players from their own teams, if they so desired. They were asked to choose players from the eight high school teams here in Sullivan County as well as players from The Family School. Although The Family School is located in neighboring Delaware County, the Lady Falcons played many Sullivan County high school teams this season as part of their Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association (OCIAA) schedule.
After the votes for the MVP, First Team and Second Team were tallied, the top five vote-getters were named to the Honorable Mention team.
And the 2005 Sullivan County Democrat All-Stars are…
