Which Players Get Chosen:
1. The player they feel had the best year at a flight gets 1st team.
2. The player they feel had the 2nd best year at a flight gets 2nd team.
3. If there are additional 1 singles player that they feel are deserving, they are also named
4. The player/flight they feel is most deserving is named Holland Sentinel Player of the Year.
How They Rank The Players At Each Flight: Understand the importance of the Holland Christian match each year for this award. Ourselves and HC are traditionally the two strongest teams in the area. If you want to be first team, beating them is the best way to do it. When Dan D'Adonna sends me the All Area email each year, this is what he wants to know, in order of importance:
#1 What were your results against local teams (HC, Holl, ZW, ZE, Ham)?
#2 What place did the flight take at Conference, Regionals, and States?
#3 What other quality wins does your player have?
#4 What is the player's record? (This is least important, because the Sentinel understands
that different schools have easier or harder schedules, which affects overall record)
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THE BOYS SELECTED!!!
