2017-18 NWC Girls Basketball All-Conference Teams

Crestview senior forward Paige Motycka was selected as the 2017-18 NWC Player of the Year in voting by Northwest Conference girls basketball coaches.  Motycka edged out senior Carlee McCluer of Columbus Grove in a close vote.  Last year’s player of the year, Paige Bellman (CG) was awarded an “Honorary Player of the Year” award by the league coaches as she missed her senior season due to injury.

Motycka averaged 16.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game in leading the Knights to an 16-6 regular season record.  Crestview finished league play tied for second with Bluffton and Spencerville.

Joining Motycka and McCluer on the  NWC First Team were junior Alivia Koenig (BL), senior Lauren Schroeder (CG), sophomore Lexi Gregory (CV) and junior Avery Rumer (BL).  Motycka and Koening were repeat first team selections from last year.
