Winter all-Conference Indiana honors announced

March 14, 2014
Columbus North High School

     Athletes and coaches from Conference Indiana high schools have been recognized with the 2013-14 winter all-conference honors.

     Athletes in boys’ basketball and girls’ basketball were selected following a vote of conference coaches on Thursday (March 13).

     Athletes in boys swimming, girls swimming, gymnastics and wrestling have known of their selections since the conference meets earlier in the winter because accolades in those sports are based on performance in those events.

     Coach of the Year awards were determined by a vote of conference coaches in all sports.

     Those voted as Coach of the Year were Kyle Simpson of Southport and Jason Speer as co-Coaches of the Year in boys’ basketball; Pat McKee of Columbus North in girls’ basketball; Jim Tonte of Perry Meridian in wrestling; Leisa Jones of Bloomington South in gymnastics; and Jim Sheridan of Columbus North in boys’ swimming and girls’ swimming.

     In a year of transition, Conference Indiana featured six teams this season in boys’ basketball and girls’ basketball – Bloomington North, Bloomington South, Columbus North, Franklin Central, Perry Meridian and Southport. Terre Haute North and Terre Haute South participated this season in league competitions in boys’ swimming, girls’ swimming and wrestling. Four schools – Bloomington North, Bloomington South, Columbus North and Franklin Central – competed in gymnastics this season.

     A complete list of the honorees for the 2013-14 winter sports is below:
