Wednesday, April 22, 2020 | 1:00 PM
Rochester teammates Alexis Robison and Corynne Hauser, who repeated as WPIAL girls basketball champions, drew statewide recognition Wednesday by earning all-state honors in Class A.
Robison, a junior, made the first team and Hauser, a sophomore, made second team in a vote of Pennsylvania sports writers.
Rochester went 26-1 and was two wins away from the state finals when the coronavirus outbreak forced the PIAA to suspend and later cancel the tournament in the quarterfinal round.
Robison averaged 19 points. Hauser averaged 16.
Class A and 2A all-state selections were announced Wednesday. The four other classifications were revealed earlier in the week.
Kennedy Catholic’s Malia Magestro, the Class A player of the year, is a Youngstown State recruit. Kennedy Catholic was 22-3 and also had reached the state quarterfinals.
