In addition to Daily Times Player of the Year Mia Farmer of Cardinal O’Hara, the rest of the All-Delco girls basketball team includes:
Lexi Stover, Archbishop Carroll: Stover was a go-to weapon for the Patriots and rose to the occasion in big moments during a 15-win season that ended in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament. Stover had a few signature moments, such as Jan. 25 when she poured in 28 points to lead Carroll to a thrilling overtime win over Cardinal O’Hara. In the first round of states, Stover made the winning shot as time expired in the fourth quarter, lifting the Patriots to 41-39 win over Garnet Valley. Stover, who averaged 11.7 ppg., verbally committed to Rider University. She will be Carroll’s team leader and one of the top two-way guards in the Catholic League next season.
Alyssa Monaghan, Bonner-Prendergast: The junior guard is a pleasure to watch and simply one of the best basketball talents in the area. She followed up a stellar sophomore season with her second straight All-Delco campaign in 2013-14, leading the Pandas to 17 wins and a trip to the PIAA Class AAA playoffs. Monaghan, who averaged 17.2 points per game and led Delaware County girls basketball players with 69 3-point field goals, committed to Saint Joseph’s prior to the season. She became the fourth Archbishop Prendergast/Bonner-Prendie girls player to reach 1,000 points. Monaghan will return for her senior year as arguably the top player in Delco.
Sarah Abbonizio, Episcopal Academy: After playing a complementary but in helping the Churchwomen to both the Inter-Ac League and Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association titles in 2012-13, Abbonizio, after a slow start, became the top player for her team in 2013-14. A first-team Inter-Ac honoree, Abbonizio broke from the shadow of two-time Daily Times Player of the Year Megan Quinn and led the Churchwomen to their second straight league championship this winter.
Myonie Williamson, Radnor: Toward the end of the regular season and into the playoffs, Williamson led Radnor on a seven-game winning streak that culminated in the school’s first District One Class AAA basketball championship. Williamson was the catalyst for the Raiders’ amazing run, which included a 25-point showing in the semifinal round. One of the county’s best scorers, Williamson averaged 17.3 points per game, which ranked third in Delco among qualifiers. For her efforts, Williamson was named Central League MVP, even though the Raiders failed to qualify for the league tournament due to their struggles during the regular season. Williamson will continue her career at Dickinson College.
Bree Mulhern, Ridley: Quietly, Mulhern was the best all-around guard in the Central League, and one of the most exciting girls basketball players in Delco. It’s hard to imagine the Green Raiders qualifying for the District One Class AAAA tournament and finishing with 19 wins without her. Mulhern was a fantastic shooter and dribble-and-drive player, displaying exceptional vision and court savvy. She made others around her better. Mulhern earned second team All-Central League honors, which only goes to show was a terribly underrated player she truly was. Mulhern averaged 12.8 ppg for the Green Raiders and hopes to continue playing the sport at the collegiate level.
