One day after helping Solano capture its third straight Bay Valley Conference championship, several Falcons were honored.
Sophomores Crystal Lee, Veronica Morris and Ashley Daniels were named all-BVC on Saturday while head coach Matt Borchert was named co-coach of the year. Soroya Blunt, Bree Domingo, Allie Davison and Ashley were also named academic all-conference.
Crystal, who was a nominee for conference player of the year, averaged 11.4 points per game during the regular season. The forward, who was named all-conference as a freshman at Napa Valley College in 2004, also averaged 7.2 rebounds per game and shot 48 percent from the field.
Veronica, a guard who transferred to Solano from Santa Rosa Junior College, averaged 11.1 points per game. She also averaged 4.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per contest.
Ashley Daniels, who had an outstanding freshman year at Solano and was one of the Falcons’ most consistent players this year, averaged 8.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 2.7 steals per game. She was one of the team’s top defenders.
All-conference selections are based on an individual’s performance throughout the entire season.
“I am really proud of the entire team,” said Coach Matt. “We won the conference title because we are a well-rounded team. Everyone contributed to this championship effort. These three ladies though stood out and I am glad that the other coaches recognize their effort and hard work on the court.”
For Coach Matt, this was his third time being named the conference’s top coach.
Congratulations to the entire team, and especially to Crystal, Veronica, Ashley, Soroya, Bree, Allie and Coach Matt for these outstanding achievements!
