2006-2015 SOUTH DAKOTA GIRLS BASKETBALL ALL DECADES TEAMS
In 2004, in conjunction with the creation of the SDPB-TV documentary, Play Like A Girl, Mariah Press created the South Dakota Girls Basketball All Decades teams. Jim Quinn had created South Dakota Boys Basketball All Decades teams for his Quality Program Service programs back in 1979. Sanctioned Girls High School began in South Dakota in 1975. Mariah Press created Girls All Decades teams for 1975-1984; 1985-1994; and 1996-2005. Remember that Girls Basketball was a Fall sport for the majority of these time periods.
We have carried out the process of creating new All Decades teams for the time period of 2006-2015. Following the Quality Program Service proven selection process we created a panel of former players, former coaches, media people, and sports historians to carry out the selection process. There are three teams: Class AA, Class A, and Class B. Each team includes the All Decades selections as well as the honorable mention category for each class.
The previous All Decades teams, as well as, the All State teams for each year are included in the Girls Basketball section of the site.
