Triumph, glory, heartbreak and defeat made up a thrilling 2019-20 prep basketball season in Shasta County. Two Northern Section champions from Shasta County were crowned in girls basketball, career milestones were surpassed and records were broken on the hardwood to make this year one to remember.

The 2019-20 All-Shasta County girls basketball team, sponsored by Weaver Lumber and Milgard Windows, highlights the top 15 players and another handful or two honorable mention honorees who stood above the rest. Players were chosen by the Shasta County Sports staff and picked through extensive game coverage throughout the season. In addition to the “eye test,” players were also evaluated using statistics and coach input.

Coach of the Year — Lenny Ehn | West Valley

There were more times than not a West Valley victory was followed with a comment of not being pretty. But that was by design. The Eagles imposed their will on their opponents, wearing them down with physical defense, unmatched post depth and presence, and pesky guards who prided themselves on undeniable effort, confidence and composure.

Ehn got West Valley to embrace its identity quickly and success followed. The Shasta County Sports Girls Basketball Coach of the Year guided the Eagles to an 26-9 overall record, which included a 10-0 mark during a Northern Athletic League title run, the program’s first Northern Section Division IV championship since 2013 and a Northern California CIF D-V championship appearance — the state’s Final Four.

Only one Eagle scored more than eight points on a nightly basis in Shasta County Sports MVP Madalynn Bassett. But a rotation that went about 10 deep all contributed in not only scoring but grind-it-out defense, embodying what coach Ehn passed down to his players from the start of the season.
