Cam Soenksen (20) shoots and drains a 3-pointer in the Camanche season opener against Wilton. 

The River Valley Conference and Class 4A division have released its all-conference teams – and the Gateway area is well-represented.

The RVC Boys Elite Team is highlighted by Camanche's Cam Soenksen and Caleb Delzell, who serve as the one-two scoring punch for the Indians this season, averaging 20.2 and 14.8 points, respectively.

Camanche's Carson Seeser earned North Divisional Team honors. The senior is a 3-point marksman, shooting a red-hot 40 percent from the distance for the Substate-bound Indians. Zach Erwin, a freshman, rounds out Camanche's presence with an honorable mention listing.

Northeast's Braeden Hoyer joined Soenksen and Delzell on the Elite Team after averaging a team-high 15.6 points and adding a defensive and rebounding presence to coach Travis Eversmeyer's team.

Dawson Stoll (North Divisional team) and Trey McAleer (honorable mention) rounded out the Rebels' honors. Stoll, a senior, trailed only Hoyer in scoring with 12.1 per contest. McAleer, a junior, averaged six points and played a key role in the team's offense.

On the girl's side of the RVC, Camanche's Madi Parson was named to the Elite Team after averaging 12.7 points this season. The senior duo of Cam Carstensen and Hanna Nissen were named to the North Divisional Team. Carstensen averaged 8.7 points while Nissen put up 7.1 for the 10-11 Indians.

Camanche's Tarah Wehde was tabbed as an honorable mention.

Claire Abbott and Alexis Ehlers picked up accolades for Northeast's girls team, as Abbott was named to the North Divisional team while Ehlers received an honorable mention. Abbott, a junior, scored 6.3 points a game this season while Ehlers, a sophomore, added 6.6.

In Class 4A, Central DeWitt's leading freshmen duo of Taylor Veach and Allison Meadows joined Clinton's Megan Gandrup on the Southeast Region All-District Team.

Gandrup, a senior, was the River Queens' primary scoring option this season, averaging 14.6 points per game and shooting the 3-point ball at an impressive 34.6 percent clip.

Veach and Meadows paired to help pull the Sabers one game away from the state tournament, as the team ultimately fell to Xavier Tuesday night.

Veach led the team with 14.2 points per game while Meadows trailed with 11.1 points. Both Sabers were efficient from the floor, as Veach shot 43.7 percent – including a sizzling 42.9 from 3-point distance – and Meadows converted 38 percent of her shots.
