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.

McGuffey had three players on the total squad.

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