Not surprisingly, the Sunnyside Christian High School boys and girls basketball squads make up the majority of the rosters on the 2011-12 Greater Columbia 1B League All-Opponent teams.
Both Knights teams won the league crowns this season with unbeaten records.
The 1B All-Opponent Girls Team includes all five starters for Sunnyside Christian (10-0, 21-1). The Lady Knight all-stars are seniors Katie Long, Alyssa Haak and Marisa Broersma, as well as junior Kara Den Hoed and sophomore Stormee Van Belle.
Broersma was also named the Greater Columbia 1B League's female player of the year.
Bickleton High School's Lindsay Brown and Jamie Venema also were selected for inclusion on the All-Opponent Girls Team.
On the boys side, Sunnyside Christian senior Trevor Wagenaar earned accolades as player of the year. Joining Wagenaar on the All-Opponent Boys Team are teammates Alex Brouwer and Brandon Broersma, both juniors. Sunnyside Christian's boys finished conference play at 8-0, and are currently 16-6 overall.
From Bickleton, the Pirates are represented on the All-Opponent Boys Team by Peter Clinton and Justin Roberts.
