Knepp named to Junior All Star Team

MONTGOMERY — Barr-Reeve junior guard Jenna Knepp had an excellent season, and now she's an All Star.

Knepp was named to the Indiana Junior All Star team Wednesday, adding another honor to her stellar 2012-13 campaign.

Last month she was named to the Blue Chip Conference First Team after leading the Vikings to a second place finish in the conference. In conference play, Knepp led Barr-Reeve with 15.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game in conference play.

Barr-Reeve finished with a 18-5 record, losing in the Class A Sectional 63 to Vincennes Rivet, 60-47.

Knepp was selected as part of the South group, which will join the six-player core group to play one game each against the Kentucky Junior All Stars and the Indiana Senior All Star Team. The games will be played at Banker's Life Fieldhouse between June 7-12.

Barr-Reeve coach Mark Holt said it was refreshing to see that Knepp's terrific season wasn't overlooked due to playing in a less publicized area.

"I knew she was a talented enough player to make that kind of squad," Holt said. "But obviously when you're from a Class A school that's not in a large metropolitan area, you don't get the publicity that's necessary to make that kind of team. Luckily other coaches from around the state are aware of how good Jenna (Knepp) is." The only other Viking girls player to be selected as a junior all star was Amber DeCoursey (Guinn) in 1994. Holt hopes this can be help in Knepp's development as she goes into her senior year in the fall, and a possible college basketball career.

"It's really good for Jenna, because she has the talent to play at the next level," Holt said. "It's tough sometimes in our situation to be noticed by some schools that you would like to play for. This will give her added exposure by playing against senior all stars and the Kentucky all stars."
