HAVILAND – After a season that saw her hit 1,000 points in her junior season, Wayne Trace’s Claire Sinn was voted as the Paulding County Player of the Year in voting by the county coaches and media.

The Lady Raider junior led the red-white-and-blue to the Green Meadows Conference outright championship and a 19-3 regular season record. Sinn scored 14.5 points per game while adding 5.5 rebounds a contest for Wayne Trace.

“Claire was our go-to player this year,” commented Lady Raider head coach Bethany DeJarnett. “She worked very hard on improving her game over the offseason and put in a tremendous amount of time in the gym.”

Sinn was second on the team with 56 assists on the year and 69 steals while hitting a team-high 83 percent (35 of 42) from the free throw line. She also topped Wayne Trace with 46 3-point field goals on the year.

“Claire is one of those kids that you know is going to put the time in to make herself a better player,” DeJarnett added. “She spent a lot of time in the weight room and got stronger.”

Joining the Raider guard on the first team are teammates Kaylee Shepherd and Miriam Sinn along with Paulding’s duo of Chelsi Giesige and Bri Townley. Antwerp’s Karsyn Brumett was a first team selection as well.

Kaylee Shepherd concluded her career in a Wayne Trace uniform with a solid season, finishing second on the team with 8.3 points per game while hauling down 4.2 rebounds a night. The Raider forward was third on the squad with 39 steals and dished out 35 assists on the season as well.

Junior point guard Miriam Sinn scored six points a night but was more noted for her defensive effort, where she shut down the opponents’ best player on a regular basis. She also topped Wayne Trace with 87 assists and 92 steals and pulled in four rebounds a contest for the Lady Raiders.

Karsyn Brumett scored 9.2 points per game for Antwerp and grabbed 3.3 boards a contest. The Archer point guard added 29 assists and 21 steals on the season for the blue-and-white. The junior was second in the county with 28 3-point field goals made.
