QUINCY — Only two girls basketball players across Illinois were named first-team all-staters on every ballot submitted by the Associated Press panel of voters.

It’s no surprise Abbey Schreacke was one of them.

The Quincy Notre Dame senior guard was the leading vote-getter in Class 2A for the second straight year after guiding the top-ranked Raiders back to the state semifinals, where they will face Breese Mater Dei at 4:15 p.m. Thursday at Illinois State University’s Redbird Arena.

Lincoln junior Kloe Froebe, who was the top vote-getter in Class 3A, was the other unanimous all-stater.

The 6-foot Schreacke is a three-time first-team all-stater to go along with being the all-time leading scorer in QND history. The University of Missouri signee is averaging 21.5 points. 10.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists while shooting 56.3 percent from the field, 53.2 percent from 3-point range and 80.9 percent from the free-throw line.

“There’s not a player who works harder,” QND coach Eric Orne said of Schreacke. “She’s determined to get the most out of every minute she spends in the gym, and the results speak for themselves. She’s had a phenomenal career.”

QND senior guard Blair Eftink and Central-Southeastern sophomore guard Lauren Miller were Class 2A honorable mention all-state selections.

Eftink, a 5-foot-9 guard who is the Raiders’ all-time leading 3-point shooter, is averaging 13.6 points and 3.6 rebounds, while shooting 41.5 percent from 3-point range with 66 made treys. The 5-foot-10 Miller averaged 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.4 steals as the Panthers won 30 games and reached the Class 2A sectional championship, where they lost to QND. 

In Class 1A, Brown County senior guard Katey Flynn and Unity senior forward Ashlynn Arnsman were honorable mention picks.

Flynn, who has committed to John Wood Community College, led the Hornets to a school-record 31 victories, averaging 18.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 3.4 steals, and will graduate as the second all-time scorer in school history. Arnsman, who has signed with Quincy University, averaged ​​14.7 points, 10 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists.
