Eric Thornton of Norwell is the coach of this year's All-Stars. He will be assisted by Amy Brauman of Brownsburg and Gretchen Miles of Washington.
Goodall, who set school records for 3-pointers in a season (73) and a career (144), completed her high school career with 1,291 points to stand second on the school's all-time scoring list. She also finished second on Columbus North's career steals list with 254, fourth in career rebounds with 576 and tied for 11th in career assists with 206.
