Carbon Lady Dino Sara Morley continues to receive accolades for a stellar senior basketball campaign, earning Salt Lake Tribune first team all-state recognition this week. Fellow Lady Dino Lindsey Blanc and freshman Emery Lady Spartan Megan Jensen received honors as well.
As voted on by the coaches, Blanc was named to the 3A second team while Jensen earned an honorable mention nod in 2A.
Morley transferred from San Juan High School this year to attend Carbon High. She didn’t miss a beat, scoring 10 points and 14 rebounds in her first game as a Dino against Spanish Fork back on Nov. 24. It was the first of nine double doubles on the season. Her best game statistically came against 5A West on Dec. 29, a game in which she scored a season-high 21 points and ripped down 13 boards. Her season high in rebounds (17) came in the first round of the 3A Playoffs against Bear River on Feb. 19. Morley has signed a letter of intent to play volleyball (already signed) and basketball (has yet to sign) at USU Eastern in the fall.
Blanc, a junior, finished the year with averages of 12.2 ppg, which was a team high. She also averaged 3.8 rpg and dished out 3.7 apg. She was also third in 3A in steals, averaging 3.4 spg. Blanc scored a career-high tying 20 points against Juab on Feb. 11.
Jensen, just a freshman, came off the bench for the Lady Spartans to average 8.4 ppg. She scored a career-high 18 in the first round of the 2A playoffs against Maeser Prep, a game Emery won 52-46.
