Leary earns top honor, Murphy is top coach

Butte Central’s Danee Leary has a new title: MVP.

The Butte Central guard was named the most valuable player of the Southwestern A as the All-Conference team was announced.

Leary, who missed the Class A State tournament with a medical issue, also earned All-State honors for her stellar senior season.

BC senior Mariah Cooney joined Leary as first-team All-Conference, while BC head coach Meg Murphy was named the league’s Coach of the Year.

Maroons seniors Hannah Stajcar, Danika Neumann and Alysea Pica were named to the second team.

Hamilton sophomore Taylor Goligoski and future University of Montana player Aycia Sims of Stevensville were the other two All-State selections from the Southwestern A. Anaconda junior Courtney Moodry rounds out the first-team selections.
