SF Preps Basketball: Miles Amos wins BCL-West Player of the Year, Schneiberg named to girls’ first team

In the midst of playoff pushes, both the Stuart Hall boys’ basketball team and the Lick-Wilmerding girls basketball team got even more good news on Thursday, as their leaders took home top honors in the Bay Counties League-West awards.

Stuart Hall’s twin turbines — senior guard Miles Amos and sophomore forward Nigel Burris — headlined the boys. An electric defender and a dynamic scorer, Amos earned league Player of the Year honors, while Burris was the only sophomore on the All-League First-Team. Lick-Wilmerding freshman Annaben Schneiberg was the only freshman on the girls’ first or second teams (among four Tigers to make all-league), and Urban’s make-it-go junior point guard Rain Sheh earned the league’s Player of the Year award.

Other San Francisco boys who made the all-league: University guard Max Fried, Lick-Wilmerding center Zach Johnson and University forward Charley Moore were all named to the first team, along with Marin Academy guard Sam Faber.

The second team consisted of Urban sophomore guard Bryce Smith, San Domenico senior guard Cash Fulton, University junior guard Christian Heng, Lick-Wilmerding junior guard Allen Wilson and Stuart Hall senior Alex Byrd, a tough and conscientious defender who can spark runs with his sudden scoring.

Honorable mentions included Stuart Hall’s Spencer O’Brien-Steele, Lick-Wilmerding’s Phin Horowitz, Stuart Hall guard Tomas Wolber, University’s Reese Johnson, Marin Academy’s Neil Ashe and University’s Raki Cabrera-Scarlata.

On the girls side, Schneiberg was the only freshman named either first- or second-team. She was joined on the first team by Urban junior guard Caitlyne Mar, University senior forward Grace Feinberg, San Domenico senior guard Kayden Korst and Marin Academy senior guard Navi Budhraja.

Lick-Wilmerding’s Samantha Foong made the second-team, after coming came up clutch in the playoff opener for the Tigers with Schneiberg sidelined with foul trouble. Foong hit a key 3-pointer — her fourth on the night — to give Lick-Wilmerding some breathing room. Schneiberg finished with a team-high 23 points, while Foong scored 16.

Along with Foong, University’s junior forward Sidney Spivy made the second-team, as did Lick-Wilmerding forward Ava Gray, Urban junior guard Maia Pedrosa and San Domenico junior forward Isabella Engler.

Girls’ Honorable Mention: senior Mason Cooney (Convent), freshman June Ellsworth-Yow (Marin Academy), senior Ella Pearl (University), sophomore Daniella Resch (University), freshman Dominique Cabading (Lick-Wilmerding).Prep Sports
