3 Silver Eagles Make All-Conference Team

McKenna Warnock’s trophy case just keeps filling up.

The 6-foot-2 Monona Grove girls basketball forward has already won the 2019 Miss Basketball Wisconsin award. She was also named the state’s Gatorade player of the year and has been chosen to the all-state team.

Now, for the fourth consecutive year, she has selected to the All-Badger South first team after another brilliant year on the hardcourt for the Silver Eagles.

Warnock, who will be playing women’s college basketball at Iowa, ranked third in Wisconsin with a 29.7 points per game scoring average. She also nabbed 12.5 rebounds, handed out 3.2 assists and blocked two shots per contest.

Warnock ended her career with 2,311 points, 954 rebounds, 243 assists and 159 blocked shots.

She was the only member of the Silver Eagles represented on the first team.

Two MG players received honorable mentions.

Senior Payton Blang was hard-nosed and intrepid in her role at MG’s point guard. She averaged 5.7 points, two assists and 2.8 rebounds per game. The 5-foot-8 senior scored double-figure points in four games, including a season-high 15 against Madison Edgewood in early January. She also had five games with five or more rebounds, and had four steals in two games.

Also achieving honorable mention was junior guard Jenny Gorton, who finished second to Warnock in team scoring with 8.1 points per game. Gorton was a 3-point shooting specialist making three or more shots from the arc in five games. Her five threes and 17 total points helped the Silver Eagles beat Madison Edgewood 88-54 on Feb. 14. She had 21 points in MG’s 88-50 win over Milton on Dec. 18.

Monroe placed three players on the all-conference first team and Oregon had two.
