The Louisville Catholic Sports Network All-Catholic Teams recognizes student-athletes who played at the top level during the regular and postseasons within their sport. The players are selected based on nominations from local coaches and the LCSN staff that covered the teams during the 2017-18 season.

It was a spectacular year for the LCSN girls’ basketball teams. Mercy finished as the state runner-up after a stunning postseason run while Sacred Heart won the Louisville Invitational Tournament championship and spent the entire year ranked in the top three before being stunned in the Seventh Region title game.

Sacred Heart’s Grace Berger was named LCSN Player of the Year after averaging 15.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game as a senior. The Indiana signee made 226 of 441 (51.2 percent) from the field including 29 of 72 (42.3 percent) from three-point land. It's the second straight year she has won the award.

Mercy senior Danielle Feldkamp (8.9 points, 7.2 rebounds), junior Regan Berger (10.9 points), and super sophomore Taziah Jenks (16.0 points, 7.2 rebounds) all had spectacular years and were named to the first-team.

Grace Berger’s teammates, senior Kiki Samsel (11.7 points) and sophomore Erin Toller (10.3 points, 4.3 rebounds) were also named to the first-team.

Here’s a look at the full list which includes the Player of the Year and first, second, and third team. Each squad had five players not including POY.
