On Wednesday, 15 seniors and 15 underclass girls basketball players were announced to have earned IBCA/Subway ‘Supreme 15’ all-state honors for the 2018-2019 season.

Among them was Hamilton Southeastern star Amaya Hamilton. Several other Hamilton County girls senior basketabll players also made the honorable mention list, including: Noblesville’s Mallory Johnson, Noblesville’s Maddie Knight, Carmel’s Reagan Hune, and HSE’s Malea Jackson.

Two Hamilton County girls players also made the underclassmen’s ‘Supreme 15’ list, those girls are Hamilton Southeastern’s Sydney Parrish, and University’s Lindsey Syrek.

For the fifth year, the IBCA also named large school all-state teams—which included 17 seniors and 16 underclassmen because of ties in voting — and small school all-state players, including 15 seniors and 15 underclassmen.

The ‘Supreme 15’ is the top honor awarded, and players were voted to that group without regard to school size. The large school and small school all-state teams are secondary accolades — the large school group including players from class 3A and class 4A schools and the small school group including players from class A and class 2A schools. Players who make the ‘Supreme 15’ are not considered for large school or small school honors.

In addition, 86 more seniors and 89 more underclass players were selected honorable mention all-state. The honorable mention laurels are awarded without regard to school size.

Those voted to the 2019 IBCA/Subway Supreme 15 Underclass girls' team are, listed alphabetically: Kendall Bostic, Northwestern; Jessica Carrothers, Crown Point; Ella Collier, Danville; Lilliann Frasure, North Judson; Nan Garcia, Jeffersonville; Madison Layden, Northwestern; Rachel Loobie, Franklin Central; Jasmine McWilliams, North Central; Sydney Parrish, Hamilton Southeastern; Ayanna Patterson, Homestead; Jayla Smith, Lawrence North; Keegan Sullivan, South Bend St. Joseph; Lindsey Syrek, University; Taylor Westgate, Oak Hill; and Ariana Wiggins, Heritage Christian.

The IBCA/Subway All-State teams are selected through a process organized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana.

All IBCA-member head coaches have the opportunity to nominate players. A panel of 20 IBCA coaches -- 16 from the current regional areas, three district representatives (one each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3) and the committee chairman -- then meets to review the nominations, vote and finalize the selections.

Subway Restaurants of Indiana once again is making a financial contribution to the IBCA Scholarship Fund as the presenting partner of the IBCA all-state teams. As part of the partnership, Subway will provide plaques to Supreme 15 honorees and certificates to players receiving Large School All-State, Small School All-State or Honorable Mention all-state recognition. Those items will be available to each recipient's coach at the annual IBCA Clinic in April, allowing her coach to present the award to each player.
