Girls BB All-State Nominations Part 1

Two of those who were easy all-state nominees this year are Avery Lee from Menlo School (Atherton) and Ashley Hawkins of Long Beach Wilson. Lee was the top player for last year’s D2 state champions who were the first boys or girls team this season to have its playoff quest end due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Hawkins averaged 18.9 ppg for the Bruins with a high game of 40 points. Photos: Pam McKenney / Menlo Athletics &

Here’s the girls version of our first run-through of nominees on our board to get us going toward eventual selection for the 40th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams for girls basketball. These Class of 2020 seniors really deserve the recognition in light of things they may be missing in coming weeks due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This list can be amended through additional nominations from any coach, fan or parent. We will post a second updated list — which will be for Gold Club members only — once all additional input has been collected.

We hope you like this free post on Please help us out today by becoming a member of our Gold Club so you can see all of our great content. Two of the four upcoming all-state team posts will be for Gold Club members only plus the second updated list of nominees and additional state record updates. For more on special offer to get signed up for $3.99 per month, CLICK HERE.

What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s height, position, year in school, significant statistics. Make sure to list the school, too. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: or call (209) 608-1317 (that is the cell for editor Mark Tennis). For girls all-state teams, associate editor Harold Abend will be consulted for all final all-state team lists. Email

Also, be aware that not all freshmen or sophomores we are considering for all-state underclass may be on this list. We also normally wind up choosing players who aren’t on this list for some of the smaller CIF divisions as well. These players will come to light when all of the various major newspaper-based honor squads are released.

Format: Ten players will be chosen all-state overall first team with 10 more on second team and 10 more on third team. Each of the first 30 players are written up. There also will be players named from each of the CIF state divisions. Players from Open Division teams will be mixed with Division I and there will at least twice as many Open/Division I players chosen than from any other division. The all-state underclass team also will consist of at least 20 juniors, 15 sophomores and 10 freshmen. Those numbers can fluctuate, however, depending on the pool of players involved.

Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us info to make sure all facts are turned in and placed into our files. We do copy-paste the final set of nominees from last year to get started and may have missed seeing a transfer or may be listing a player who was injured for the 2019-20 season who played in 2018-19.

Thanks to special Northern California correspondent Daniel Poulter for major contribution to this post. Please give him a follow @DanielJPoulter. Finally, congratulations to following all-state nominees currently on our board for the various 2020 all-state girls basketball teams:

      How are we supposed to list multiple players from schools and teams that don’t put out their stats anywhere?
      You try it sometime. Entire state 1,200 schools. Boys and girls. That’s why we ask for nominees. And then people send them in with an attitude.

    Mark- once an athlete is nominated, do you need anything else from the coaching staff or that school’s Athletic Department?

      Kids from your school district will show up on All-CIFSS teams or on the All-Daily News teams. If there’s anything else beyond that you think would help, we’ll collect it all. Thanks.
