Martin was the lone Viking player (girls or boys) selected for post-season honors, named to the Class 1-A Southeast All-Conference Team. Martin is just a sophomore and will be a key player for the Lady Vikings in her junior and senior seasons.

GUERNSEY--Post-season honors have been released for the 2016-2017 season and the Lady Vikings’ Whitney Martin has been named to the Class 1-A Southeast All-Conference team.

Just a sophomore, Martin averaged nearly 10 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. She led Guernsey-Sunrise in most stat categories for the season including free-throws (63%), 2-point field goals (29%) and 68 steals.

Her best basketball came at the end of the season during the regional tournament in Douglas as the Lady Vikes came within four points of qualifying for a trip to the state finals.

Martin scored 25 points and hauled down 14 rebounds in the one-point loss to Kaycee, the top-seeded team in the regional.

In their second-round game, she canned 20 points and collected 11 rebounds as the Lady Vikes defeated Hulett.

In their final appearance against Arvada-Clearmont, she scored six points and pulled down nine rebounds in a four-point loss that took them out of the state tourney hopes.

Martin is one of 12 girls selected for the Southeast All-Conference team. Others include: Cheyenne Tomkins – Hanna-Elk Mountain, Jade Cooper, Kaylynn Jefferson, and Georgia Wollert, all from Lingle-Ft. Laramie; Taylor Broyles, Michelle Bunce, Lydia Moore and Andi Todd, all of Rock River

The Class 1-A Southeast Player of the Year was Georgia Wollert from Lingle-Fort Laramie.
