CLINTON — In a conference loaded with local talent, Prince of Peace found five athletes on the Tri-Rivers All-Conference Team when the conference released the list on Friday.

Junior Patrick Mulholland headed up the honors with a unanimous vote to the 1st team on the boys side.

Mulholland led the Irish offense, averaging over 16 points a game throughout the season and boasting a field goal percentage of over 50 percent, despite a lot of outside shots. In fact, his 3-point percentage ended up a whopping 42 percent, which was second best in the conference (when attempting more than 30). Mulholland also pulled down the second most rebounds and had 48 steals.

Mulholland was one of only two juniors voted to the first team.

Mulholland was closely followed by junior Kadion Larson who earned 2nd team honors.

Larson was close behind Mulholland in scoring, averaging over 15 points per game. Larson’s quick drives to the basket allowed him to end the season with a field goal percentage of over 45 percent. Larson made it to the free throw line the most for the Irish, draining 65 throughout the season.

He also put up a team-high 65 steals this season and led with 92 assists.

Senior Connor Williams round out the boys by being named and all-conference honorable mention.

Williams averaged just over six points a game, but was 82 percent from the free throw line with a team who struggled with free shots. Williams pulled down 42 rebounds, had 37 assists and 17 steals to wrap up his Irish career.

Although the Irish girls didn’t see a win this season, they still had two freshman earn all-conference honors from their young squad.

Freshman Anabel Blount made 2nd team, the only only freshman to make that particular team and one of only three on the entire list.

Blount averaged over 10 points a game for the Irish, attempting 177 free throws throughout the season with drives to the lane. Blount also had a team-high 145 rebounds and 13 blocks.

Freshman Isabel Hansen was another one of the three freshman who made all-conference honors, picking up honorable mention.

Hansen was the leader from the outside, draining 22 3-point field goals throughout the year. She also had 29 assists and a team-high 26 steals.
