Chugiak’s Selden-Horn named first-team All-State; Palmer makes second team
Chugiak junior guard Chasity Selden-Horn is starting to pile up the awards.
Already a first-team All-Cook Inlet Conference performer, Selden-Horn was named to the Alaska Association of Basketball Coaches All-State team released before the start of the state tournament.
Selden-Horn led the Mustangs in scoring this season as Chugiak finished third in the CIC regular season standings and fourth in the CIC tournament. The Mustangs went on to finish third at the Class 4A girls state tournament, where Selden-Horn averaged 21.3 points per game and was named to the all-tournament team.
She was joined on the all-state team by Chugiak senior point guard Eva Palmer, who was also a first-team all-CIC performer.
Dimond star Alissa Pili was named the Class 4A Player of the Year, an honor that went to Colony’s Sullivan Menard on the boys side.
