ZEPHYR COVE, Nev. – Although the season for both of the Warrior basketball programs ended abruptly and immediately upon entering the Mount Rose Conference 2A zone competition, the undeniable progression from both teams should create a strong foundation for the upcoming years.

The conference- and state-recognized players for Whittell included senior Alex Potnick, who was nominated 1st Team All-League and 2nd Team All-State. He maintained an average of 14.1 points per game and 7.9 rebounds every time he was on the court.

The next mention was senior Blake Heldt-Werle, who was awarded 2nd Team All-League with an average of 10.8 points per game along with 2.5 assists per game.

The last zone recognition award for the Warriors went to senior Alex Vogt who was chosen as an honorable mention with a solid 6.1 points per game and 5.2 boards.

“(It is) great recognition for not only those who received the honors, but for our program as well,” said coach Tyler Rose. “The league coaches did a great job in recognizing not only the talented players, but those whose character and leadership really stand out in making their respective teams better.”

Similar to the boys’ team, three Lady Warriors were chosen to be on the All-League accreditation.

Sophomore Emily Harris was chosen as a 2nd Team All-League contender with 6.5 and 8.5 points and rebounds respectively on average per game.

Sister and teammate to the above mentioned, sophomore Amanda Harris was given an Honorable Mention award for the Mount Rose Conference with and average of 9 points per game and 10.5 rebounds.

The final zone acknowledgment went to junior Megan Mize who as the starting center for the warriors averaged 6.5 points per game and 8.5 rebounds.

– Blake Heldt-Werle was the Warriors’ senior point guard during the 2010-’11 season.
