The Deseret News writers pick the MVP, but the remainder of the all-state teams are based on coaches’ votes.

The All-Region 13 teams were also announced as chosen by the coaches. Shaylee McDonald was named the Region 13 MVP, while Kaitlin Glover, Aliesha Houston and Channing Jackson were named to the All-Region squad.

Region 13 was the toughest region in the state with the state champion Delta Rabbits and state runners-up Kanab Cowgirls.

Kanab head coach Mickey Houston was extremely proud of the girls and their tremendous season.

Congratulations girls!
