The Mayer Lutheran girls basketball team have three players who earned All-Conference honors for the Minnesota River Conference. Junior guard Lexi Schermann was named All-Conference, while Symone Jopp and Morgan Chmielewski were named All-Conference Honorable Mention.
The season didn’t really begin for Schermann until Jan. 1, but that didn’t stop her from wracking up All-Conference honors and being the top scorer for the Crusaders. Having to sit out the first two months of the season due to transfer rules, Schermann emerged as the top offensive weapon for the Crusaders once she was eligible.
Schermann averaged 13.5 points per game this season for the Crusaders. She was the team’s leading scorer despite playing 10 less games than her teammates.
In conference play, Schermann was even better. She averaged 15 points per game, and led Mayer Lutheran in scoring in eight of the 10 conference games she played.
Jopp was the lone senior on the roster for the Crusaders this season and was named All-Conference Honorable Mention for her all-around play. A versatile player who fills many roles for Mayer Lutheran, Jopp was a key player for the Crusaders all season long.
On the season, Jopp averaged 6.8 points, 1.2 assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game for Mayer Lutheran. She was tied for the most steals on the team with 37, while also being a rim protector with 14 blocks.
Jopp is a William Penn University volleyball commit.
In her first varsity season, Chmielewski was a force to be reckoned with. The sophomore guard was one of the top players for Mayer Lutheran all season, especially on the defensive end.
For the year, Chmielewski averaged 6.9 points, 2.5 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game. She was tied for first in steals on the team with 37, and would often be tasked with guarding the opposing team’s best player.
