Siders earns CHSCA All-State nod; Ferraro and Japs chosen for Academic team

Holy Cross senior standout RaShana Siders received another honor Monday when she was named All-State by the Connecticut High School Coaches Association.
Siders was chosen for the First Team in Class M.
There were also a pair of locals chosen as Academic All-State. They are St. Paul senior Lizzy Ferraro and Wolcott senior Bri Japs.

Here’s a little more on Siders.

The Holy Cross senior led her team to the Class M state semifinals, where they lost to a powerful Cromwell squad that ended up winning the title. All Siders did in her final game was toss in 30 points. When the Crusaders needed a big basket, they more often than not turned to Siders, who could get to the hoop (VIDEO) or shoot from the outside. Siders was also capable of stealing the ball and triggering the Holy Cross fast break. Siders was named the top NVL senior, and her team captured division and league tournament titles.
Next up for Siders is American International College, where she will begin play in the fall.
