2017-18 Girls Basketball All-Sentinel Team COTY: Randy Jones, Big Spring
Coach of the Year: Randy Jones, Big Spring
This was a tough one, with several deserving candidates in 2017-18. But Jones guided a squad that went 4-17 last season without a single win in the Mid-Penn Colonial back to the District 3 Class 5A playoffs after a 16-7 (9-3 Colonial) campaign. They actually led the Colonial for much of the season before late losses to eventual champ Shippensburg and Northern. The Bulldogs had no standout scorers, instead relying on a feisty man defense that Jones pushes hard. That unit limited most teams every night and allowed for a balanced, if not all that overwhelming, offense to get into good position and make good shots. Jones got the nod over the Greyhounds' Andrew Markel, who turned a 10-12 team into a 15-8 playoff team, Cedar Cliff's Scott Weyant, the reigning COTY who again took the balanced Colts to a PIAA appearance, Camp Hill's Mark Clarke, who took the Lions to a third straight District 3 Class 2A championship, and Trinity's Kristi Britten, who did a quality job balancing playing time for a completely rebuild (and stacked) lineup dripping with future college talent, taking the Shamrocks to district gold.
