WARREN, Pa. – Led by the lone returning all-state selection from District 10, Warren’s Emma Ruhlman, a talented five-some makes up the inaugural D9and10Sports.com girls’ preseason All-District 10 basketball team powered by Hunter’s Station Golf Club.
Joining Ruhlman are seniors Becca Santom of Grove City, Anna Kadlubek of Slippery Rock and Emina Selimovic of McDowell, as well as junior Arianna Mitchell of Erie.
Ruhlman, who has started every game in her first two years for Warren, averaged 14.9 ppg. 9.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 2.7 steals a game as a sophomore as the Lady Dragons advanced to the state playoffs for the third time in the last four seasons. She was a third-team all-state selection in Class 5A in 2019-20.
Santom’s Grove City team beat Warren in the D-10 Class 5A semifinals last season before knocking off Slippery Rock for the D-10 crown. The senior guard averaged 16.7 ppg in 2019-20. She scored 20 points and had 12 rebounds in the D-10 title game victory.
Mitchell, a forward, helped lead Erie to the D-10 Class 6A title last season, averaging 11.8 ppg. to go along with 9.7 rpg., 2.5 bpg. and 1.8 spg.
Kadlubek a talented guard, is committed to IUP. As a junior she averaged 12.7 ppg., as the Rockets joined Ruhlman’s Warren team and Santom’s Grove City squad in the 5A state playoffs. She also made 29 3-pointers in 2019-20.
The 5-11 Selimovic led McDowell in scoring as a freshman before missing her sophomore season due to a torn ACL. She came back from an ankle injury that forced her to miss half of her junior season as well, but has shined on the AAU circuit. She is fully healthy now and as talented as any player in District 10. She is committed to Division I Siena.
