    A bit surprised only 24 got the honor this year, as there is usually a flex 25th for one of the two regions. Below are the breakdowns. As expected, Finlandia pushes Adrian to a whopping 5-All Americans. Minnesota leads the way as far as hometowns go. Way fewer girls from the northeast as there have been in years past, not unlike recent trends.

      I'm very surprised that Stow didn't make it to the 2nd team.
