The 2013-14 season was a big winter for Santa Clarita Valley prep sports.

Two boys basketball teams and one girls soccer team advanced to CIF divisional championships and one of those teams — Trinity Classical Academy boys basketball — won a title.

This week, local athletes from the winter season are reaping the rewards.

A total of six basketball players and 14 soccer players were named to various All-CIF teams in the Southern Section, which were released Sunday for soccer and Monday for basketball.

The only Foothill League hoops players to make the list were Hart senior Lewis Stallworth in Southern Section Division IIAA boys and Canyon senior Kali Vittallo in Division IA girls.

Stallworth, a University of Texas, El Paso commit, was also the Foothill League Player of the Year in boys, while Vittallo was the co-Player of the Year in girls.

“I feel like it’s just the ultimate icing on the cake,” said Stallworth, who helped lead Hart win its first league championship since 2007. “It’s been a really, really good year from getting scholarship to going undefeated in league.”

Stallworth recorded 20 points, four rebounds and four assists this season. Vittallo averaged 16.7 points, four 4.2 assists and 4.2 steals per game.

Those two were honored alongside a host of Trinity players, which were led by Division VI Player of the Year Ryan Brooks.

Brooks was engine that helped power Trinity to the Division VI championship, the school’s first in school history.

“I was more working toward a championship for our team and I feel like (All-CIF) would be just another outcome to the championship,” Brooks said.

His father and Trinity head coach John Brooks was also named the division’s Coach of the Year.

As for the players, Trinity senior Spencer Klehn and sophomore Michael Mateo were also honored on the Division VI first team.

Rounding out the basketball honorees was Santa Clarita Christian senior point guard Kamron Carroll, who made the Division VA first team.

In soccer, the CIF-Southern Section Division II finalist Hart girls had three players on the Division II first team: seniors Sophie Cortes and Destinney Duron and junior Danielle Spickard.

Cortes was the All-Foothill Player of the Year.

Santa Clarita Christian girls soccer also had three first-team selections in Division VII. Those named were senior Desirae Dodson, sophomore Lacey Lehman and junior Lauren Gallagher, who was the Liberty League Player of the Year.

There were also a group of SCV players named to All-CIF second and third teams.

Hart senior Kelsey Stokes was named the Division II second team while teammates Nicky Davis and Brooke MacArthur made the third team.

Canyon senior Sarah Cipperley was also placed on the Division II third team.

For SCCS, Chloe Edwards, Maya Rauch and Tiffany Shroyer made the Division VII second team and MaKenna Gale made the third team.
