A total of 22 other players saw action in the clash, which brought many of the state's top seniors together. Their ranks consisted of Ashley Bauman (Manistee Catholic Central), Katherine Benchley (Coleman), Connaught Blood (Hillsdale Academy), Tarra Caverly (Hale), Amanda Coveyou (St. Ignace), Jessica Duncan (Cedarville), Michelle Edwards (Central Lake), April Emerson (Morley Stanwood), Lindsey Gifford (Napoleon), Elizabeth Hamlet (McBain), Amanda Ison (Allen Park Inter City Baptist), Kayla LaMuth (Manistique), Kayla Lefler (Mio), Megan Loveberry (Quincy), Abbie Richardson (Napoleon), Ashley Root (New Lothrop), Rachel Sheffer (Watervliet), Gabbi Simon (Portland St. Patrick), Jasmine Thomas (Flint Hamady), Amber VanWieren (Fennville), Taylor Watters (Ishpeming Westwood) and Kayla Wolter (St. Joseph Lake Michigan Catholic).

DeCeuninck earned her invitation to play at the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan Class C-D All-Star Game by putting up outstanding numbers her senior season.

She amassed 331 points over 21 contests, an average of 15.8 points per contest this past winter.

That left her first on the Dryden squad and ranked her second out of those who earned a spot on the Tri-City Times All-Area first team lineup.

DeCeuninck also pulled down 253 rebounds, generated 65 steals, blocked 33 shots and was credited with 17 assists.

"She is a hard worker," Dryden Coach Tony Anderson said. "Sarah is always encouraging her teammates to work harder and never quit," he noted.

"She played a big role in leading Dryden to the school's first-ever league title. I am honored to have had the opportunity to coach Sarah for four years (including one at the junior varsity level). I can honestly say I have never had an athlete like her. Her presence, outstanding attitude and leadership will be missed next season."

DeCeuninck, a 5-10 senior forward/center, concluded the season as an All-North Central Thumb League first team selection.

She finished her three-year stint on Dryden's varsity with 798 points, 724 rebounds, 188 steals and 73 assists.
