ROCKVILLE — After completing a perfect 16-0 Bay Valley Conference season, the Solano Community College women’s basketball team landed three players on the all-conference team.
Leading the way for the Falcons (25-4) was sophomore point guard Taylor Hamilton, who finished one vote shy of MVP honors. It was the second straight year Hamilton earned all-BVC honors.
Falcons coach Matt Borchert said Hamilton averaged 14.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3.5 steals per game this season.
She was also the ninth leading scorer in the conference.
“Taylor’s fantastic. She’s one of better all-time point guards in the history of the program,” Borchert said, adding that Hamilton will be a sure-fire inductee to the SCC athletic Hall of Fame.
Also earning all-conference honors for the second straight year was Ariel Clay, a sophomore out of Rodriguez High.
“Ariel’s been real solid for us. She’s played multiple positions, she’s defended the other teams’ top player quite a bit,” Borchert said. “She’s just a perfect example of a really versatile player both offensively and defensively.”
Clay put up 9.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and two steals per game this season, while shooting 43.4 percent from the floor.
Sophomore guard Denisha Lundy, a bounce back player from Cal State Dominguez Hills, also earned All-BVC honors, putting up strong numbers for the Falcons.
In her lone season at Solano, Lundy averaged 15.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.2 steals per game.
She also shot 39 percent from the arc, netting 72 3-pointers.
“She was a big boost for us,” Borchert said. “She’s got a great skill level and great dedication. She was the big-time boost we needed this year to get us to a different echelon.”
The Falcons finished the regular season ranked eighth in Northern California and 14th in the state.
Borchert also took home Coach of the Year honors, but he was quick to deflect the honor onto his coaching staff.
“I’m really proud of all my assistant coaches for all the hard work they do,” he said. “It helps us garner that very nice recognition.”
Solano will learn where and when it will open the playoffs at Monday’s seeding meeting.
