COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Division II girls basketball All-Ohio team was announced Tuesday by the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association.

Vinton County was rewarded for its historic season, as the Vikings went 26-2 to finish as Division II state runner-ups.

Head coach Rod Bentley was named the Division II Coach of the Year, as he led the Vikings to not only the program’s first district title, but also first regional title and victory at the state tournament.

Senior Morgan Bentley, the program’s all-time leading scorer, was selected as a member of the first team All-Ohio list. Bentley scored more than 1,500 career points as a four-year starter, and was a three-time Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division Most Valuable Player.

Junior Cameron Zinn also landed as a second-team All-Ohio player for the Vikings.

Senior Myriah Davis was honorable mention All-Ohio.

The OPSWA was created in 1972 to support, promote and recognize coverage of high school sports across Ohio and is endorsed by the Ohio High School Athletic Association. OPSWA members are invited to assist with selecting the all-district teams, with those award winners eligible for All-Ohio consideration.
