For his massive improvement from his second year to third year of high school basketball, and for helping Sterling to a 24-9 record and 3A regional championship this season, junior Andre Klaver has been named the 2022-23 Sauk Valley Media Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

RJ Coffey and Fulton boys basketball success go hand in hand. The former player and current coach has been part of nine of the Steamers’ 30 seasons in program history with 20 wins or more – basically one-third of them.

Morrison senior forward Shelby Veltrop was named to a pair of all-state teams last week, as she was an honorable mention selection by the Associated Press, and a second-team pick by the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association.
