The high school girls basketball season was very good to Amanda Hamilton and Danielle Flood.


Hamilton led Janesville Craig to a second-place finish in the Big Eight , a sectional final berth and a spot on the all-conference first team.


Flood capped off a productive career at Janesville Parker by earning a second straight all-conference first-team honor.


One thing eluded the two, thoughóbeating Middleton. The Cardinals, the Division 1 state runners-up, beat the Cougars three times and the Vikings twice.


This week, however, Hamilton and Flood will be on the same team as Middletonís Kerry Gardner and Rachael Eklund. The Big Eightís best are part of the Division 1 South team that will play the North at 9 a.m. on Friday at the UW Fieldhouse in Madison as part of the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association all-star games.


Flood, a Minnesota-Duluth recruit, became just the fourth player in Parker history to score over 1,000 points, and was all-state honorable mention as a senior.


Hamilton, a Clarke University recruit, led the Cougars in points (12.2), assists and steals.


In Division 2, Delavan-Darienís Alana Cesarz and Miltonís Liz Eide, will play for the South team.


Cesarz, a University of Nevada-Las Vegas recruit, was named to the Associated Pressí first team for the second straight year. She averaged 21.8 points per game this past season and ended her high school career as Delavan-Darienís all-time leading scorer.


Eide led Milton to a berth in the WIAA Division 2 state tournament, averaging 15.2 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game.
