Four IMS players earned Southeast Iowa Super Conference honors.
Senior co-captain Suzanna Yoder was named Co-Conference Player of the Year and garnished first team all-conference honors. Yoder led class 1A in scoring for the second straight year at 27.5 PPG and finished second overall in the state of Iowa. Yoder finished second in the conference in assists at 4.6 per game, second in assist to turnover ratio at 1.4 per game, sixth in steals per game at 3.3 and pulled in 5.9 rebounds per game.
Sophomore guard Yani Gutierrez-Larios earned second team all-conference honors averaging 8.0 PPG and 6.8 rebounds per game. Gutierrez-Larios led IMS in rebounds and finished fifth in the conference for defensive rebounds.
Senior forward Rubye Ney and junior co-captain Mia Graber were named honorable mention. Ney finished ninth in the conference for offensive rebounds at 2.5 per game and tenth for total rebounds. Graber averaged 6.5 PPG and averaged 5.4 rebounds per game.
“It’s great to see the girls be recognized for their outstanding efforts this season,” IMS head coach Kari Heusinkveld said. “Suzanna obviously had a great year and was our engine. For her to put up the numbers she did even when everyone in the gym knew she was the one you had to slow down is remarkable. Yani did an excellent job this year as well and played so well off Suz. We saw last season that she could be a weapon for us and this season she just continued to grow and become more consistent. Rubye and Mia both brought athleticism, a competitive edge and a work ethic that elevated our level of play. They each had games where they were scoring in double digits which brought better balance to our offensive attack and they helped anchor us on the defensive end. I’m very proud of these four and what they brought to our program this season.”
IMS finishes the season at 10-11 after a loss in the Regional Quarter-Finals. This is only the tenth time in the history of the program with double digits in the win column.
