Thompson, Barg make All-State first team

Basketball honors

Wood River High School senior Haylee Thompson and Carey High School senior Baley Barg were first-team selections in their classifications when the Boise-based Idaho Statesman newspaper announced its 2012 All-Idaho High School Basketball Teams in its edition of Sunday, March 25.

The "Player of the Year" in the Girls' 1A Division 2 for a second straight year was senior Moriah Dill of the state champion Dietrich Blue Devils.

Utah State-bound 6-1 senior post Thompson, a second-team State 4A All-State selection last year, moved up to the first team based on a season when she averaged over 15.0 ppg with 164 rebounds for the state third-place Wood River Wolverines.

"Player of the Year" in 4A was Middleton senior Taylor Simmons. Wood River senior Kaitana Martinez made the All-State second team along with Josie Jordan of Twin Falls.

Barg, a senior wing, was a top scorer for the last two Carey boys' basketball teams that played Nezperce in the State 1A Division 2 tournament championship game. This season Barg amassed 382 points, 200 rebounds, 68 steals and 24 blocked shots. Like Thompson, he advanced from last year's second-team All-State status.

Joining Barg on the first team was Dietrich senior Jakob Howard. "Player of the Year" was 6-5 senior Sawyer Wahl (17.6 ppg) of the state champion Nezperce Indians.

Other Girls' 1A Division 2 honors: Carey junior guard Jaide Parke (14.7 ppg) made All-State second team along with senior Sasha Kent of Richfield and junior Charley Bingham of Dietrich. Honorable mention picks included Carey senior Micaela Adamson and Dietrich senior Ellie Dalton.
