2017 All-KingCo list: Corosdale named co-KingCo MVP, Jones makes first-team

Bothell senior Taya Corosdale has won the all-KingCo MVP award for the second season in a row — at least in part.

Corosdale and Eastlake junior Gina Marxen were named co-MVPs in a meeting with conference coaches on Monday.

Corosdale, a 6-foot-2 post, averaged a double-double this season, pulling down 11.2 rebounds and a career-high 19.2 points per game. Corosdale was a second-team selection as a freshman and first-team selection as a sophomore, and has committed to play at Oregon State next season.

Bothell senior Keyonna Jones was a first-team selection for the second straight year. Jones averaged 15.5 points and 6.7 rebounds, both career-highs.

Inglemoor senior Amanda Luckett picked up a first-team selection for the first time in her career after finishing as an honorable-mention player last year. Luckett averaged 15 points and 11.3 rebounds, but missed several games at the end of the season due to a foot injury.

The Vikings went 5-9 in conference play and lost in the first round of the conference tournament.

Bothell (14-0, 19-2) won the regular-season conference title and will play for the tournament title on Thursday in Kirkland. The Cougars held the Class 4A No. 1 spot when the WIAA froze the rankings earlier this week, and would be the No. 1 seed to the state tournament if Bothell wins on Thursday.

Bothell’s Kent Shaefer won the conference Coach of the Year honor for the second straight season.

Bothell senior Sydney Cowan and sophomore Kelsey Hudson made the honorable-mention list alongside Inglemoor senior Emily Massad and sophomore Jenna Troy.
