“Ellie is very competitive and driven. I think we have only scratched the surface on her potential as a complete basketball player.

Near had a 10.0 scoring average and sank eight threepoint shots. She ranked sixth in blocked shots at 1.1 per game. Near averaged 5.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.9 steals per contest.

Hartmann is one of four unanimous first-team selections. The other unanimous picks are senior guard Olivia Meerdink of Oostburg, junior guard Makaylee Kuhn of Hilbert and junior forward Emily Behnke of Manitowoc Lutheran.
