Pollart, Donarski earn 3A honors again

One is a three-time all-state selection. The other is now a two-time all-state choice. Both are going to be very missed next winter by the Panthers' girls' basketball program.

Seniors Hannah Pollart and Savannah Donarski capped a second state runner-up finish at Powell High School by being named to the 2010 Class 3A all-state squad. For Pollart, the selection marks her third time honored as one of the state's top players. Donarski appears on the all-state roster for the second time in her prep basketball career.

“Both of them meant a lot to Panther basketball,” said Powell head coach Luke Danforth. “They are both very deserving players. I would say they are prime examples of what an all-state player should entail.”

Pollart led the Panthers this season with 16 points per contest while pulling down an average of 6.7 rebounds per game. Donarski chipped in 11.2 points per contest while leading Powell with 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game.

“Together, they were probably one of the strongest post duos in the state this season,” Danforth said of the pair. “Part of their success came from the overall success of our team, but they both worked dilligently to improve.”

Joining Pollart and Donarski on the 3A all-state roster were Kelsey Armstrong, Buffalo; Mikayla Brower, Torrington; Kielee Ellsworth, Worland; Ali Lindemood, Mountain View; Ruth O'Neal, Lander; Ellie Rice, Jackson; Raegen Scott, Douglas; Dallas Shaw, Buffalo; Danielle Skinner, Cody and Shelby Stewart, Glenrock.

Named to the Class 3A boys' all-state roster were Jeremy Beehler, Newcastle; Rob Caesar, Jackson; Blake Condos, Lyman; Keaton Cross, Pinedale; Kasey Esponda, Buffalo; David Greninger, Rawlins; Colin Herold, Thermopolis; Robert Heyer, Worland; Jason McManamen, Torrington; Dylan Reese, Pinedale; Damon Smith, Jackson and Aaron Tyler, Buffalo.

Pollart and Donarski were the only Panthers, girls or boys, to receive all-conference recognition as well for the 2009-2010 basketball season.
