Lady Outlaws name All-League selections
Last updated 2/28/2023 at Noon
The Lady Outlaws basketball squad had three players earn All-League honorable mention, including Josie Patton, Ashlynn Moffat, and Shae Wyland.
Patton was a starter for the Outlaws all four years and this year a team captain. She has well-rounded skills, and this year was asked to play three different positions, including point guard, but her real presence was in the post.
Coach Paul Patton said, “Josie is what is referred to as a ‘glue player’ because she just held the team together on the court with her hustle and leadership.”
Moffat (senior) was one of the Outlaws’ steadiest contributors all season. She could be counted on to chip in points, grab rebounds, dish out an assist, or get a steal on defense.
Patton said, “Ashlynn was also a team captain who led the team by example with her determined style of play and her hard work in practice. Most importantly, she is a kindhearted person who cares about doing what she can to help out her teammates.”
Wyland rounded out the honorable mention picks and was also selected to the All-Defensive team.
“Shae is just a sophomore and probably the best athlete on our team,” Patton said. “She would work her way into a starting role for us by the end of the season, but even as a backup was playing as much as anyone. Shae ran the court well and was especially good at converting steals or rebounds into lay-ins on the other end.”
Patton told The Nugget he had to mention another one of his players who wasn’t recognized, but was worthy of All-League honors
Patton said, “Because of the nomination limits I was unable to get Haleigh Froehlich recognized. She was Second Team All-League last year as a junior in a tough 4A league and had an equally good season this year.”
