CLINTON — A few River Queens were rewarded for the hard work they put in this season when the Mississippi Athletic Conference released their All-Conference list on Wednesday
Clinton struggled this basketball season, ending with a 5-13 record. That’s good for seventh in the MAC, finishing about Burlington, Davenport Central and Davenport West.
Three athletes picked up honorable mention accolades: senior Sarah Goldensoph, junior Megan Gandrup and senior Madi Eberhart.
Megan Gandrup led the offense for the River Queens, and was the leading scorer overall for a team that struggled to put points on the board. She averaged just over nine points a game. More importantly, the junior point guard led the team with 67 assists, which helped her break the Clinton High School record for career assists.
Gandrup also had 24 steals on the season and hit 70 percent of her shots from the free throw line.
Goldensoph followed closely behind Gandrup in scoring, averaging over eight points a game. The forward also boasted a shooting percentage over 50 percent and put in the most free throws for the River Queens.
Goldensoph consistently led the Queens in the paint, pulling down 151 rebounds during the season — 57 of which came on the offensive end. Goldensoph had a team-high 30 steals on the season.
Eberhart, who averaged nearly six points a game, drained 31 from beyond the arc for Clinton. No other athlete made over 20. Eberhart also brought down 50 rebounds with her height and had 20 steals.
