Dundee-Crown’s Alyssa Crenshaw, Marengo’s Jennifer Heinberg and Richmond-Burton’s Peyton Bannon earned all-state recognition for the 2019-20 girls basketball season.

Crenshaw, a 5-foot-10 junior forward, and Heinberg, a 5-foot-7 junior guard, earned honorable mention Illinois Associated Press All-State honors in Class 4A and 2A, respectively.

Bannon, a 5-foot-6 senior guard, was named to the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Class 2A third team.

Crenshaw averaged 15.3 points and nine rebounds a game, leading the Chargers to a 29-7 record. D-C lost to Lake Park, 60-49, in the Class 4A South Elgin Supersectional. The Chargers won the Fox Valley Conference outright and won a sectional title for the first time in 17 years. D-C’s 29 wins were a program record.

Heinberg led Marengo in scoring at 17.3 points a game and made an area-leading 106 3-pointers. The Indians (20-11) recorded their third consecutive 20-win season and shared the Kishwaukee River Conference title with Woodstock North.

Heinberg made 50 straight free throws at one point, a state record, and led the area in free-throw percentage at 87.1% (101 for 116).

Bannon led area players with 22-plus points a game, scoring more than 54% of R-B’s total points. She was named KRC Player of the Year and set team records for points in a game, points in a season and career points.

Bannon set the school’s single-game scoring record with 43 points against Marengo on Jan. 28. She scored 40 points against Winnebago on Jan. 4, beating the previous record of 32.
