Marshall was one of only four high school girls basketball teams in the state of Michigan to end the season with a victory.

And for leading the Redhawks to 26-straight wins and the program’s first Michigan High School Athletic Association state championship, Marshall’s Sal Konkle has been recognized among her peers as the best girls basketball coach in the state for the 2015-16 season.

Konkle was named the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan (BCAM) Girls Overall Coach of the Year on Monday. She joins her daughter, junior guard Jill Konkle, and junior forward Nikki Tucker as Redhawks who have received postseason recognition from the BCAM.

Marshall finished the season 26-1 overall after it upset Grand Rapids South Christian in the Class B State Championship at the Michigan State University Breslin Center. The Redhawks, which entered the postseason ranked No. 7 in the state, also shocked No. 2-ranked Bay City John Glenn on a pair of free throws with 1.4 seconds left in the state semifinals.

On April 22, the Marshall girls basketball team was honored at the Capitol in Lansing by State Senator Mike Nofs.
