They are scorers, rebounders, defenders, record holders and winners.

The Class B girls' all-state team as chosen by the South Dakota Basketball Coaches Association and the South Dakota Sportswriters


Association announced today is a who's who of elite players.

The decorated group includes a top-five all-time leading scorer, and

a host of school record holders.

Summit twin sisters, Logan and Presley O'Farrell, headline the first

team. The 6-foot senior guards guided the Eagles to state

championships their sophomore and junior seasons. They were also

members of Summit's state title team as eighth graders in 2009. Logan

was a first-teamer last season, while Presley was a second-teamer.

The Augustana College recruits helped Summit go 93-8 the last four

seasons. The O'Farrells are the daughters of former Summit standout

Lori Wohlleber, who is one of the top scorers in South Dakota girls'

basketball history with 2,490 points.

Logan averaged 16.5 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game

this season. She finished her career with 1,219 points, 624 rebounds,

361 assists and 357 steals.

"Logan became the vocal leader of our team and was the one that set

the tone for us each game," Summit coach Mark Amdahl said. "Logan

knows the fundamentals of the game which allows her to score from a

lot of positions."

Presley's statistics were almost identical to her sister's. Presley

averaged 13.2 points, 7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per contest this

season. She finished her career with 951 points, 519 rebounds, 411

assists and 329 steals.

"Presley's athleticism allows her to finish around the rim on dribble

drives as good as anyone I have coached," Amdahl said. "She's scrappy

on defense and causes a lot of turnovers."

Other first-teamers include seniors Kieran O'Malley of Centerville,

Taylor Trohkimoinen of Newell and Shauni Schwartz of Herreid-Selby


It is O'Malley's third straight season being named to the first team.

The high scoring guard led Class B in scoring this season with an

average of 31 points a game. She also registered 5.5 rebounds per game

and dished out three assists per game. The 5-foot-7 guard is the

school record holder for points (2,599), assists (406), steals (328)

and three-pointers (265). Her point total is fifth on the all-time

South Dakota girls' basketball scoring list. The Mount Marty College

signee guided the Tornadoes to a 19-4 record this season.

"Kieran O'Malley is truly an amazing player," Centerville coach Logan

Diede said. "She has put countless hours in the gym over the years and

it definitely shows every time she steps foot on the basketball court.

She has made a huge impact on the girls' basketball program here at

Centerville and has been a great role model for younger girls to look

up to."

Trohkimoinen was also a first-team selection last season and was a

second-teamer as a sophomore. The 6-foot point guard had a brilliant

career for the Irrigators. She finished with 1,651 career points,

which is third most in school history. The Black Hills State recruit

is the school record holder in rebounds (763), assists (541), steals

(441) and blocks (162). The versatile Trohkimoinen tallied 20.4

points, 9.6 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 3.7 blocks and 4.6 steals this


"Some of Taylor's biggest attributes are that she always got the open

person the ball while getting her shots when they showed up," Newell

coach Scott Wince said. "A great passer and has great range on her

jump shot. Being six foot and a point guard, she caused lots of

mismatches which allowed her to get to the rim."

Schwartz was a third-team selection last year. She guided the

Wolverines to a 21-2 record this season. The 5-foot-10 Schwartz

recorded 17.4 points, nine rebounds, 3.9 blocks, 3.5 steals and 2.6

assists this season. The University of Mary recruit racked up career

totals of 1,434 points, 794 rebounds, 306 steals, 286 blocks and 206

assists. She helped her teams go 75-14 the last four seasons.

"Shauni is a good inside defender and shot blocker," said

Herreid-Selby Area coach Dean Schwartz, Shauni's father. "She is also

a team player and understands the game is a team sport and believes in

her teammates. She has been fortunate to play with a great bunch of

girls during her high school career."
