The following is the All Valley girls varsity basketball team for the 2013-14 winter sports season:
Ratliff guided the Lady Lions back to the Section VII/Class D championship game for the second year before losing to Moriah at the Fieldhouse. Under his tenure, the Lions have continued to improve their standing with the league and look to continue their strong play next season.
Whalen, the senior leader of the Lady Lions, took the Northern Basketball League’s Division II by storm, scoring 404 points (19.24 per) to lead all Valley scorers. Whalen also had almost double the amount of free throws made (90) than anyone else in the Valley, as well as connecting on a region-high 144 field goals and 26 from three-point range, tying her for second.
The junior guard was the second-leading scorer in the Valley (292 points - 13.91 per game), hitting 18 from long range and 118 field goals overall.
The junior center was a dominating force inside for the Beavers, averaging 11.5 points per game and helping Keene get to the Class D semifinals.
The junior point guard is the 2012-13 All Valley Captain and continued to lead the Lady Patriots from the point averaging 12.47 per game and connecting on a Valley-Leading 34 three-pointers.
The freshman guard was a key to the Beavers play this season, averaging 13.89 per game (250) while connecting on 26 three-point field goals.
Geiger, a senior center, was part of the dual inside threat Keene had over the past two seasons, averaging 10.44 points per game.
McCabe, a freshman, took over the sixth-man duties for the Lady Patriots this year, averaging 8.7 points per game and connecting on 22 three-pointers.
