HockomockSports.com has posted their listing of awards for Girls Basketball for the Winter 2021-2022 season. We shared the FHS selections and provide the link to the full listing.
Katie Peterson – Franklin – Forward
Franklin junior forward Katie Peterson made a huge leap this season, developing from a role player on last year’s team into the leading scorer this season. Peterson averaged 14 points per game, while also leading the team in steals and deflections and shooting nearly 50 percent from the field. With the range to stretch defenses and the ability to take it to the basket off the dribble, Peterson helped Franklin win a fourth straight league title, completing a perfect Hock campaign, and advancing to the Div. 1 Elite Eight. She was selected as an all-star by the Hockomock League coaches. Franklin coach John Leighton said, “I am so proud of Katie’s development this season. Her athleticism and hard work has helped her become a dominant player in our league.
Stefany Padula – Franklin – Guard
Franklin senior guard Stefany Padula developed into one of the league’s top outside shooters and one of its top perimeter defenders this season. The Springfield College commit helped Franklin win a fourth straight league title and reach the Div. 1 Elite Eight. Padula averaged 11 points per game and shot 40 percent from long-range this season, giving the Panthers a threat from deep to complement its strength in the paint. Padula was selected as a Hockomock League all-star by the coaches. Franklin coach John Leighton said, “Stef has served as a role model to younger players in our program. She is the first on the court and the last to leave as she tirelessly works to improve her game.”
Olivia Quinn – Franklin – Forward
Franklin senior forward Olivia Quinn had another impressive season for the Panthers, helping them win a fourth straight Kelley-Rex division title and reach the Div. 1 Elite Eight. Franklin lost only one league game (and six games overall) in her four-year career. The Wesleyan University commit averaged 11 points per game this season and finished with 904 for her career (missing out on reaching 1,000 because of the COVID-shortened 2021 season). She also came up big in the playoffs with 23 and 25 points in her final two games. She was selected as a league all-star. Franklin coach John Leighton said, “Olivia is one of the best players to ever come out of this program. She has played an integral role in our unprecedented success over her four years.”
All Defensive Team
Stefany Padula, Franklin
Padula, a senior guard, is a tireless worker who has developed her game in so many ways over the course of her four-year career. This season she became one of the league’s top perimeter defenders, frequently being matched up with the opposition’s best scorers. Her work rate, length, and ability to read the game made her tough to shake. Franklin coach John Leighton called her the “top defender” on the league champion Panthers, adding, “She is the first on the court and the last to leave as she tirelessly works to improve her game.”
