Fliers receive post season basketball honors

Parsley, Lunday, Severtson, Relf

Flandreau senior Hannah Parsley was named to the Class A All-State girls’ basketball first team.
Parsley holds five Flandreau records – all-time leading scorer (1,547 points), single game record for most post (32), most points in a season (415), most assists in a season (107) and all-time leader in assists (332).
A Southwest Minnesota State University commit, Parsley averaged 13.8 ppg., 7.1 rpg., and 3.0 apg., in her career (112 games).
“Hannah proved to be an all-around player early in her career – she filled every statistical category. I’ve never coached a player who has been able to be so disruptive on the defensive end of the court, she just made plays happen,” Flandreau coach Megan Severtson said. “What I was most impressed with this year was the fact that she transitioned to point guard and yet still averaged nearly 10 rebounds a game. She has always been very, very coachable, too. Not only has she put a lot of time in, in order to improve, she also plays with an incredible amount of aggressiveness and hustle. She’s one of the best – if not the best – player in Flandreau girls’ basketball history. It will be strange for all of us taking the court without her, but our program is incredibly fortunate to have had her set the foundation of expectation for years to come.”
Flandreau went 21-2 and was the No. 6 seed at the state tournament, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Fliers defeated West Central 60-55 in the SoDak 16 to earn their third state tourney berth all-time – and first since 1997.
Megan Severtson was named Region 2 Head Girls’ Coach of the Year by the South Dakota Basketball Coaches Association. Brian Relf was voted Assistant Girls’ Coach of the Year.
Parsley, Tishara Hardy, Kennedy Headrick and Shalyn Peters made the Academic All-State Team.
Flandreau’s Tash Lunday earned a spot on the Class A All-State boys’ basketball second team.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore forward averaged a double-double of 22.3 points and 11.6 rebounds
