KAUKAUNA — Following a strong season that continues this week with sectional play, the Kaukauna Galloping Ghosts girls’ basketball team has placed three players on the All-Fox Valley Association season team.

Senior forward Alana Zarneke and Junior guard Alexa Kinas both were unanimous 1st-team selections.

Sophomore forward Addison Baumgart was named to the 2nd team.

Kinas also was the lone-unanimous selection to the all-defensive team.

The Ghosts, who finished the season in third place in the conference, relied heavily on Kinas and Baumgart after Zarneke’s season ended with a knee injury earlier in the year.

Kaukauna, a 3 seed in the post-season tournament, will face #7 Kimberly at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 2 at Oshkosh North High School.
