Purdy's Brent Cornman has been honored as a first team all-district basketball selection. Even though Cornman missed the district tournament with an injury, his overall body of work during the season impressed area coaches. Jared Lankford/

Numerous local athletes have been named to the Class 2, District 12 tournament all-district boys and girls teams.

The district consisted of Pierce City, Purdy, Greenfield, Wheaton, College Heights, McAuley, Miller and Jasper high schools.

Coaches took into consideration players accomplishments throughout the season, as well as the post-season tournament, in determining the teams.
