The All-Valley team is a 12-player “roster” made up of student-athletes from schools within the Valley News coverage area, including AuSable Valley, Elizabethtown-Lewis, Keene, Westport and Willsboro.
Coach: Jaime Douglass
Douglass led the AuSable Valley Patriots to the Section VII/Class C championship and a berth in the regional finals, where the short-handed team fell to eventual state champion Lake George. Tough, full court defense and speedy, transition offense have been calling cards of the Patriots.
