All-Area Girls Basketball: Cardinals collect three spots, Pequot two


An area-best 23-5 record, a Mid-State Conference title and a spot in the North Subsection 6-2A championship game helped Staples-Motley land three Cardinals on the 2012 Brainerd Dispatch All-Area team.

Pequot Lakes, which finished fourth in the Class 2A state tournament, is only other school with more than one player on this year’s team.

Players for the all-area team are nominated by their coaches and then selected by the Dispatch sports staff.
