Player Nomination and Selection
Chris Webster and I had contacts in all conferences distributing nomination forms and reminding coaches of due dates. Some submissions were late, but all conferences were offered ample time to reply.
Nominations were counted and recorded as we attempted to equally divide the state of Connecticut into an “East” and “West” section. Divisions were made to allow coaches similar pools of players from which to select their teams.
Veteran coaches of successful programs nominated themselves as coaches and Chris Webster, having a better knowledge of the history of the game than myself, again equally represented conferences and areas of the state.
Coaches were given their list of nominees and asked to select their teams.
Teams were reviewed by Chris Webster and myself to be sure of now glaring omissions.
Local news sources from across the state were contacted and asked to announce the game, new location and team rosters publically.
Attached program was distributed to all.
After reviewing and accepting several late ballots the CHSCA has decided to amend the 2017 All Girls Basketball Team.
