TTA Athletes Nominated for All-California Girls Hoops Team

We’ve been the home of all-state girls basketball teams for nearly 30 years and want to hear from you about this year’s final selections

Annie Ward of Campolindo and Oderah Chidom of Bishop O’Dowd


Note: This is the first step in the selection process for the 2011 all-state girls basketball teams, which we’ve been producing for 30 years.

This list is not intended to be final in any way. It is posted so that coaches, parents and users can submit additions, corrections and make comments (anonymously of course) about which players should be selected when all information is received.

Please don’t wait until after all of the teams are announced to complain about a selection. Nominations are always welcome.

What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s height, position, year in school, significant statistics. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: or FAX (209) 463-1219 or call (209) 608-1317.

Also, be aware that not all freshmen, sophomores or juniors we are considering for all-state underclass may be on this list. We also normally wind up choosing players who aren’t on this list for some of the smaller CIF enrollment divisions as well. These players will come to light when all of the various major newspaper-based honor squads are released.

Format: Ten players will be chosen all-state overall first team with 10 more on second team and 10 more on third team. Each of the first 30 players are written up. There also are 10 players each for first team all-state and second team all-state for Division I, Division II, Division III, Division IV and Division V. The all-state underclass team will consist of juniors (20), sophomores (15) and freshmen (10).

Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us info to make sure all facts are turned in and placed into our files.
