The District 3-A coaches met this morning in Wartburg to discuss the upcoming district tournaments, set the seeding and vote on all-district teams.

The District 3-A Coach of the Year in the girls was Marv West of Oneida whose team has secured another regular season title for the Lady Indians with a current record of 14-0 in district play.

The District 3-A Coaches selected Kelsey Pike of Oneida as their player of the year. Joining Pike on the All-District team from Oneida were Jacey Manis, Gracie Martin and Katelyn Stiltner.
