(WYMT) - Maddie Scherr of Ryle High School, was named the 2020 Kentucky Miss Basketball on Sunday. Dayvion McKnight of Collins was named Mr. Basketball.
The awards ceremony was held on Facebook Live, after the original ceremony was scheduled for April 5th at the Griffin Gate Marriott in Lexington. The ceremony was postponed because of COVID-19.
Scherr helped the Raiders to a 23-11 record and clinched the 9th Region championship. The Oregon commit averaged 15.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 3.1 steals per game.
“It means so much. It’s a huge honor,” Scherr said. “Since I was in the fifth grade, I knew about Miss Kentucky basketball. It’s finally here, and it feels surreal.”
McKnight is the school’s all-time leader in points, assists, rebounds, and steals. The senior averaged 20 points, eight rebounds, and four assists and led the Titans to a record of 27-7. The Western Kentucky commit is the first player from Collins to be named Mr. Basketball.
“It means a lot,” McKnight said. “Coming from a small town, we don’t really have players do what I’ve been doing.”
