A trio of Santa Monica High School basketball players have been nominated for the 2010 McDonald’s All American team.

For the boys, James Montgomery and Soloman Singer earned the nods. On the girls side, Thea Lemberger was selected. The three are among 84 players from Southern California nominated for the contest that pits the best from across the country in a west versus east matchup.

Both Vikings teams are currently in first place in their respective sides of the Ocean League. Each team shares identical 17-6 records and are both 7-0 in league. Both teams traveled to Beverly Hills in a girls/boys doubleheader Friday, but the results were not available at presstime.

Finalists will be selected during the McDonald’s All American Games Selection Show scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 11 at 5:30 p.m. (EST) on ESPNU. Past participants include Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, LeBron James and Candace Parker.
