Lely High has several all-stars

Stewart, Ayers take top basketball honors

Several Lely athletes made the Naples Daily News and Collier County Athletic Conference all-star teams for winter sports.

Don Stewart, Lely basketball coach, was named Coach of the Year, while his star center, senior Parker Ayers, was named Player of the Year in NDN’s All-Area voting.

Teammates, junior Zach Hornsby and senior Brandon Love, also were named to the All-Area basketball team.

Ayers and Hornsby also made the CCAC All-Conference team, while Love was an honorable mention.

Seniors Victoria Howard and Heather Chairez were named to both girls basketball all-star teams and senior Stephanie Neil to both honorable mention lists.

In girls soccer, senior Gabby Lopez was named to both teams. Sophomore Ceira Abundez was named to the CCAC team, while being named on the NDN honorable mention list. Freshman Amanda Lopez was named to both honorable mention lists.

In boys soccer, senior Jamie Clark and sophomores Adolfo Bedolla and Luis Ambriz were named to the CCAC team and Ambriz and Bedolla made the NDN team, while Clark and Ben Noncent were honorable mentions. Noncent also was named honorable mention to the CCAC team.

In wrestling, David Isme, 145, and Luis Gonzalez, 215, made the NDN team. David Isme was named honorable mention for the CCAC team.

Wrestlers are selected to the All-CCAC Team by competing in the CCAC Wrestling Championship Tournament. Lely chose to send its best wrestlers to another tournament on the day of the CCAC Championships. By CCAC rules, those individuals who did not compete in the CCAC Championships would not be eligible for All-CCAC first team selection.

That decision in turn affects the number of ALL Sports Trophy Points Lely would earn for the year.

Lely earned just one point for wrestling, however Lely is not in contention for the CCAC All Sports Trophy.

Its fall and winter sports point total is 49, while Barron Collier is ahead with 101. Next is Gulf Coast at 83 and Naples at 74. Lely will participate in the CCAC Wrestling Championships in 2010.
