The All-Star Basketball Teams have been announced with plenty of local representatives been rewarded for their performances throughout the season.

Kelly O’Hallahan, Katie Fox and Aine Sheehy from the Marble City Hawks Club have been named on the Ladies Team with Kelly been named Player of the Year.

Jemiyah Beltune and Megan Campbell of the IT Carlow Team have been rewarded for their performances, while there are two local representatives in the Mens section with Mike Klinger of IT Carlow and Matt Van Pelt of Team Left Bank Kilkenny both been named on the team.

Five players from each of the four divisions in the Basketball Ireland National League have been awarded All Star awards this week for the 2016/17 season, with the Player of the Year for each Division also revealed. The second and third teams in each League have also been announced.

The All Stars were selected from the votes of the National League coaches who voted for the players every month from the start of the season until the end of March.

“We’re delighted to honour the very best of our leagues for the 2016-17 season,” said Women’s National League Commissioner Matthew Hall.

“The All Stars were brought back in 2015 and have proven to be very popular since then. This year’s awards recognize the best and most consistent players in Ireland.”
