GIRLS' BASKETBALL DAILY NEWS ALL-AREA TEAM AND HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2004-2005 SEASON.

Byline: Compiled by Ramona Shelburne Staff Writer

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

ASHLEE TREBILCOCK, Sr., G, Hart

Trebilcock's impact on the Hart of Newhall girls' basketball team won't be accurately measured until next season when she's playing for UCLA.

``We're still going to be a good team,'' Hart coach Dave Munroe said. ``But Ashlee made us great.''

Valencia coach Jerry Mike, whose Vikings managed to defeat Trebilcock-led teams once in four years, said, ``She's the franchise.''

This season was her finest individually despite a serious offseason ankle injury that plagued her all season. Trebilcock averaged 22.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.6 steals.

Her best efforts came in the biggest games. She scored a career-high 38 points against Valencia that clinched a share of the Foothill League title, 35 points in Hart's upset of St. Mary's of Stockton, ranked No. 15 by USA Today, 33 points in Hart's narrow loss to No. 1 Piedmont and 27 points and 10 rebounds in Hart's upset of No. 10 St. John's of Washington D.C.

Trebilcock was selected for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association All-Star game at the Women's Final Four in Indianapolis, was Southern Section Div. I-AA co-Player of the Year and a Second Team Parade Magazine All-American selection.

She never lost a game at home in her four-year career. During that time, Hart was 97-21 (.820), advanced to three consecutive Southern Section Div. I-A championship games and won at least a share of four consecutive Foothill League titles. Trebilcock was a four-time league MVP. This is her third consecutive Daily News Player of the Year honor.

COACH OF THE YEAR

RAQUEL ALOTIS, Chatsworth

Alotis has been among the area's most successful coaches during the seven years she's been at Chatsworth, but this season was easily her best. Chatsworth was the only area girls' team to advance to a section championship game, defeating some of the best teams in Southern California. The Chancellors, the top seed in the City Section, won a school-record 24 games and had a 13-game winning streak.

FIRST TEAM

KELLEY TARVER

Sr., G, Valencia

Co-MVP of Foothill League along with Trebilcock. Led team in scoring (15.8 ppg), assists (4.5 apg) and rebounding (6.1 rpg).

KELLY WINTHER

Sr., G, Royal

University of San Diego-bound shooting guard can score in bunches and never seemed to have an off night. She averaged 19.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.3 steals, 5.4 assists and shot 41 percent (50 of 122) from 3-point range.

SEYRAM GBEWONYO

Sr., F, Sylmar

Had her finest season, earning Valley Mission League MVP honors. She could be the area's most underrated player. A 5-foot-11 forward, Gbewonyo averaged 18 points, eight rebounds and 4.5 steals.

LaSHAY FEARS

Sr., G, Sylmar

Fears, who will play at UC Santa Barbara, averaged 16 points, four rebounds, three steals and 3.5 assists to lead Sylmar to its third consecutive trip to the City Section semifinals.

KRYSTLE MAYS

Sr., F, Chatsworth

A Long Beach Poly transfer, Mays made Chatsworth a top team. She led the Chancellors in scoring (13.5 ppg), rebounding (8.7 rpg) and steals (4.0 spg).

KELLY COCHRAN

Sr., F, Chaminade

Cochran improved each year in high school. The 6-foot, UC Irvine-bound forward averaged 20.3 points, 11.1 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and shot 57 percent from the field.

Second Team

TAYLOR LILLEY, Jr., G, Hart

Sharp-shooter averaged 11.6 points, shot 42 percent from the field and made 49 3-pointers. She averaged 3.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.4 steals and led the team in taking charges.

KATHRYN SCARDINO, Jr., G, Westlake

She was a key why the Warriors went relatively unscathed through the competitive Marmonte League. She averaged 12.7 points, 4.5 assists, 4.3 steals and 5.2 rebounds.

ALISHA BRYANT, Sr., C, Chatsworth

Bryant, who will play at Pepperdine next season, averaged 10.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and blocked 27 shots.

DAVIYONNE WEATHERSBY, Sr., G, Valencia

Cal State Fullerton-bound point guard was her team's emotional leader. She averaged 11.9 points.

C.J. HILL, Jr., G, Notre Dame

Clutch shooter averaged 12.7 points and led team with 33 3-pointers.

LEAH MURPHY, Sr., G, Simi Valley

Scrappy point guard averaged 11.9 points, 4.2 assists and 2.7 steals. She led the team with 38 3-pointers.

BRIA FIELDS, Jr., F, Paraclete

Second among area players with 23.6 points per game. She had the best scoring performance of the season with 48 points in a victory over L.A. Baptist. Fields averaged 11.4 rebounds and shot 59 percent from the field.

KAVITA GOSS, Jr., G, Newbury Park

Do-it-all point guard led Panthers to Div. III-AA semifinals, averaging 15.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.6 steals.

SANDY PERRY, Sr., G, Palmdale

Golden League MVP might be the area's most aggressive defender. Scrappy point guard led inexperienced Palmdale to share of third consecutive league title.

Honorable Mention

Brenna Flynn, Sr., G, El Camino Real; Brittany Sansone, F, Sr., Valencia; Tatiana Thomas, So., F, Alemany; Renee Goldoff, Sr., F, Alemany; Brittany Asplund, Jr., G, Simi Valley; Nicole Leon, So., G, Canyon; Lindsey Williams, So., F, Westlake; Jessica Romero, Sr., F, Notre Dame; Mallory Flot, Sr., G, Grant; Emily Medders, Sr., F, Oak Park; Bryana Williams, Jr., G, Cleveland; Juliet Masei, Sr., G, Desert; Amanda Ruland, So., G, Oak Park; Kristen Garmyn, Sr., F/C, El Camino Real; Shakira Autry, Sr., G, Antelope Valley; Fa'cion Edwards, Sr., G, Quartz Hill.

MICHELLE CLARK, Fr., G, Oaks Christian

Clark helped Oaks Christian to the Southern Section Div. IV-A semifinals despite the loss of leading scorer Kayla Rutherford midway through the year. Clark averaged 16 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists. She scored 32 points in the semifinal loss to Windward of Los Angeles.

Biggest Surprises

SAUGUS

Coach Eric Olsson returned from a one-year hiatus to lead Saugus back to the playoffs. The Centurions were 0-10 in 2004, when Olsson was gone, but finished third this year and made the playoffs.

HARVARD-WESTLAKE

Coach Melissa Hearlihy's team finished with a losing record for the first time in her 20-year career, but this might have been her best coaching. The Wolverines won the Mission League in 2004 but lost their top player to graduation, their top returnee to injury and their top post player quit the team. Hearlihy rallied what was left and came up a game short of a playoff berth.

CANYON

The Cowboys reached the playoffs under first-year coach Stan Delus, who inherited a team with only two returning players. Sophomore Nicole Leon became a star.

Game of the Year

Hart 66, St. Mary's of Stockton 61

Dec. 22, 2004

Hart defeated its second nationally ranked opponent in three days at the Nike Tournament of Champions in Chandler, Ariz. Ashlee Trebilcock scored a then-career high 35 points and won a head-to-head battle with St. Mary's guard Jacki Gemelos (12 points), who committed Connecticut.

St. Mary's was ranked No. 15 in the country by USA Today and No. 24 by Student Sports at the time. St. Mary's junior guard Renee Roberts, who scored 34 points on a school-record 10 3-pointers. Hart went 19 for 19 from the free-throw line.
