2016-17 All-WEABL Teams Revealed

The WEABL is pleased to reveal the All-WEABL North and South Conference First Teams, which were voted on by team coaches from across the league.

With the expansion of the league resulting in the creation of two conferences, the awards reflect that change with winners split into North & South.

In the All-North First Team, two pairs of opposing team-mates with Nottingham duo Ines Guerreiro and Denise Lawal as well Myerscough’s Shauna Harrison and Milly Knowles, are joined by Charnwood’s Harriet Swindells.

Guerreiro (10.0ppg, 3.6rpg, 3.0apg) led Nottingham in scoring in their maiden campaign in the WEABL with Lawal (9.9ppg, 5.0rpg, 0.9bpg) finishing in the top 10 in blocks and 2PT FG percentage.

Meanwhile, Knowles (17.4ppg, 10.1rpg, 3.3spg, 0.9bpg) impressed for Myerscough, making the top 5 in efficiency, scoring, rebounding and steals, while Harrison (19.7ppg, 7.9rpg, 2.4apg, 2.9spg) was second in the league in scoring having poured in a season-high 53 points in November.

Swindells (17.3ppg, 4.3rpg, 2.9apg, 3.4spg) ranked third in the league’s efficiency charts, fifth in points, first in steals and third in 3PT percentage having claimed the Player of the Week award in Week 15 after a 45-point outing against Loreto.

In the All-South First Team, Copleston starlet Ashleigh Pink and CoLA’s Ire Ozzy-Momodu make it on the team for the second year in a row, with Toyosi Abiola joining her team-mate alongside Barking Abbey’s Charlotte Ellmore and Kyla Nelson, of Oaklands.

Abiola (19.8ppg, 2.9spg, 43.5% 3PT) was the league’s leading scorer and topped the 3PT percentage charts, whilst picking up the Player of the Week award on three occasions.

Team-mate Ozzy-Momodu (9.8ppg, 13.4rpg, 56.1% 2PT) was another key factor in CoLA’s 9-1 record in the South and the England junior international was second in rebounding behind Copleston’s Maya Price.

GB’s Nelson (13.5ppg, 6.8rpg, 4.4apg, 3.4spg) starred for Oaklands with back-to-back Player of the Week awards in November, while Ellmore (10.2ppg, 4.0apg, 2.0spg) helped BA to a strong finish to the regular season.

Returning to the team, Pink (16.8ppg, 6.9rpg, 5.0apg, 2.6spg) produced some impressive all-round displays once again with another triple-double recorded, whilst leading the league in assists.
