Henley girls earn all-state basketball selections



PORTLAND, Ore. — Off a 4A state basketball championship, Henley girls basketball players Elle Morgan and Allie Fahner earned all-state honors, while coach Shannon Carlson earned the 4A Coach of the Year award.

Henley athletic director Todd Moore announced Tuesday Morgan’s designation as an Oregonian 4A All-State First Team selection, while Fahner was selected honorable mention. Earlier this month, Fahner earned an All-Tournament First Team spot at the OSAA 4A Girls Basketball State Championships, with Morgan was tabbed a second teamer.

Henley beat Sutherlin 41-35 on Mar. 10 to get the school’s third state girls basketball championship and first since 1991. Henley shot 44 percent in the title match, the second-best team shooting performance of the tournament.

Morgan made three three-pointers in the title game and pulled down 15 rebounds in the opening round against Tillamook – both were the most by an individual in any tournament game this year. Morgan was also the Player of the Game in the championship contest. Both Morgan and Fahner played the most minutes per game in the tournament.

Carlson was a member of the 1991 Henley championship team, playing for coach Don D’Olivo when the Hornets beat Silverton 72-67 at the Salem Armory. She is in her sixth year as the Henley head coach.

Carlson’s state Coach of the Year award follows her receiving the same award for the Skyline Conference. Morgan and Fahner were both selected to the Skyline Conference first team.
