After leading the Havre girls’ basketball team to its first State A championship in 17 years, Brandy Lambourne was named MVP for the tournament on Tuesday.
Lambourne scored 25 points in the State A title game Saturday to beat Hamilton 52-43 in Great Falls, the program’s first championship since 1997.
The Blue Ponies, which finished 17-6 with the title-game win, dropped two girls onto the all-tournament team. Junior Morgan Mazurkiewicz joined the senior Lambourne.
Hamilton and Columbia Falls were also represented by a pair of picks. Juniors Jaylee Albert and Taylor Goligoski got the nod from the Broncs while senior Haley Belgarde and junior Ciera Finberg were picked from the Wildkats.
