Charleroi senior Mia Woytovich is one of two Lady Cougars basketball players to make the 5 AA All-Section Team, as voted on by the coaches.

Woytovich made the first team, while teammate Anjie Tilghman made the section's “finest 15.”

Woytovich, a 5-9 guard, who topped 1,000 points earlier in the year, averaged 19.4 points per game and six rebounds while helping lead Charleroi to a 17-6 record.

A four-year starter, Woytovich played on four straight playoff teams at Charleroi.

Woytovich scored 19 points and had six rebounds and four steals in her final game, a 54-48 playoff loss to Shenango. She finished her career with 1,103 points.

Charleroi coach Joe Grodz said of Woytovich, “She's a special player and works hard. On the floor, she's going 100 percent all the time. When she's going and she's on, no one can match her.”

Tilghman, a 5-7 senior, averaged 13.8 ppg game for the Lady Cougars.

“She is very deserving,” Grodz said of Tilghman. “Both her and Mia were very hard-working players for me. They were a big part of our success over their careers.”

Joining Woytovich on the section's first team are McGuffey juniors Sammie Weiss and Rachel Czulkewicz, Beth-Center junior Anna Bartman and Washington senior India March.

Also named to the “finest 15” is Bentworth junior Reilly Skerbetz. Skerbetz, a 5-9 guard/forward, averaged 14 ppg for the Lady Bearcats.

Washington had the most selections on the Finest Fifteen with four.

McGuffey had three players on the total squad.

Weiss, who averaged 23.8 ppg, for McGuffey, was named the section's Most Valuable Player.
