With the 2016-17 winter seasons complete, league commissioners from the Roseville area announced the top performers on the hardwood, the field and the mat in the Sierra Foothill League (SFL), Capital Valley Conference (CVC) and Sacramento Metropolitan Athletic League (SMAL). 

Just over 50 Roseville-area athletes earned all-league recognition headlined by Woodcreek’s pair of juniors Jordan Brown and Mackenzie George, who each earned SFL Most Valuable Player honors and Roseville senior Shelbie McKay, who collected the CVC’s MVP award on the hardwood. 

“It’s a big accomplishment to earn an award like this,” Brown said. “It’s even more special because of the team we had this year. We worked really hard all year and in the offseason and this is proof that we did something great.”

In his junior campaign, Brown averaged 26 points, nearly 16 rebounds and over two blocks per contest as he helped lead the Woodcreek boys basketball team to the CIF State Open Division title game at the Golden 1 Center. In all, his squad racked up a 32-3 record and capped the school’s first undefeated SFL season.

On top of Brown’s third-straight MVP award but first outright honor, Woodcreek’s Tyrell Roberts and Chris Cagle found their names on the first team list, while Jackson Hughes earned second team honors. 



On the pitch, Mackenzie George helped the Timberwolves girls soccer team claim their first SFL title in school history as she claimed MVP honors. George led the league with 14 goals and nine assists (37 points), while five other teammates claimed all-league honors.

“An award like this means a lot for our program and for Mackenzie,” Woodcreek’s coach Mark Bowman admitted. “It speaks volumes about what our program accomplished this year, and she deserves it. Mackenzie is honestly the best player in the league and we’re lucky to have her.” 

In the CVC, the section champions from Roseville tallied four all-league picks, all of whom are sophomores in Ashlynn Hernandez, Kylie Granno, Molly Branigan and Mackenzie Gill. Oakmont added four of its own selections. 



Roseville also took home top honors in boys soccer as four players found their name on the all-league list, including goalkeeper Kyle Kellogg, defenders Ryan Poindexter, James Garbolino-Mojica and midfielder Ryan Branigan.

“It's an absolute honor to be on that list,” Ryan Branigan admitted. “We haven't had this success as a program in a long time, so being able to earn this award in my last year of my high school career means everything. I value it a lot and am very honored to have earned this award and am so grateful my team had the success we did this year.”

In the SFL, Folsom High’s undefeated season helped the team rake in lots of postseason honors, including the Sierra Foothill League’s Most Valuable Player award for senior midfielder Spencer Hoyle who led the league in goals (19) and points (47). Granite Bay had four All-SFL first team selections, while Woodcreek added three names.



On top of Woodcreek’s multiple awards in the SFL, the Granite Bay’s boys basketball team, which finished third in the league this past year, also made a splash with four all-league picks, led by Darren Nelson’s fourth first team selection of his career.

“I am excited for Darren because he’s the first person since Granite Bay High School opened that has been on the SFL first team all four years of their career,” Darren’s coach Jason Sitterud pointed out. “Nobody from any other team in the SFL has ever accomplished that, so it needs to be celebrated.”

Roseville added a pair of All-CVC picks in Sean Granucci and Tommy Edwards, while Valley Christian added one first team selection in the SMAL in Brady Bowen, who averaged over 18 points a game for VCA’s boys hoops team. 



McKay’s unanimous MVP selection highlighted one of Roseville High’s most prolific careers on the hardwood. The Tigers’ shooting guard has averaged double-digits in each of her four seasons at Roseville High and finished her career with 1,435 total points, which is good for third in school history. 

This past season, she led her team and the league with 16.7 points per game, while finishing tied for first with five steals per contest. 

The senior also capped her final regular-season game with a career-high-tying 32 points against Ponderosa as the Tigers wrapped up their first share of a league title in 23 years with a 12-2 CVC record.

“Senior night, league champs, career-high — I don’t know what else I could ask for,” McKay said at the time. “I mean, I waited four years to even be in the running for a league championship, and we started from the bottom, literally. We were last in league and now, we’re co-champs with Antelope. Honestly, it’s a dream come true.”

Roseville’s Ari McCurry joined McKay on the first team All-CVC list, as did Oakmont’s Sam Birco.

In the SFL, Woodcreek’s Kourtney Milani and Jenn Palmer joined Granite Bay’s Adrienne Russell and Shayla Boley as all-league picks while VCA earned two first team selections and two second-team picks.

Angelina Contreras and Mikayla Flood, the only seniors on the Lions’ five-time champion girls basketball team, earned first team selections from the SMAL, while their coach Kim Contreras collected Coach of the Year honors.

Contreras, who averaged 20 points per game, and Flood, one of the top rebounders in the league, never lost a league game during their four-year careers. 



Jack Ramalia’s first team All-SFL selection headlined the local grapplers this year as he reached the finals of the CIF State Wrestling meet and finished second overall in California at 145 pounds. 

Fellow Granite Bay wrestlers Parker Wilkin and Nolan Stabbert joined Ramalia as all-league picks after each took second in the SFL championships. 

In the CVC, Roseville had three all-league picks in Jacob Solso, Ethan Bandy and Dylan Davis. Oakmont’s Ben Murphy also made the list.
