The Herald-Argus 2014-15 Girls Basketball All-Area teams

It was quite a year for area girls basketball. The Herald-Argus' coverage area saw Division I recruit Michal Miller score 46 points in a single game, junior Riley Popplewell surpass 1,000 points for her career, senior Lexi Minix lead her team to a semi-state appearance, and a dynamic duo in orange and black - that's Kyleigh Kubik and Nicole Konieczny - rain down 3-pointers on opponents. There were so many outstanding candidates for our all-area teams that this year we expanded to three teams, as well as several honorable mentions. Without further ado, we bring to you The Herald-Argus 2014-15 All-Area Girls Basketball teams.

And Atlanta was that with Jimmie Johnson dominating, and the rest of the top five consisting of Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. (his second straight third-place finish), Joey Logano, who followed up his Daytona win nicely, and Matt Kenseth.
