GIRLS

BENTON

–Kianna Herrera (junior):
Averageing 12 points a game, 8 rebounds. She is a girl that can both play with her back to the basket and step out to hit jump shots regularly as well as shoots an okay 3pt% for a post player at roughly 24%. Shoots 73% free throw percentage.

–Jaida Cox (junior):
is an athlete that averages 10pts per game, she shoots 32% from the 3pt arc. She is the juice for our team. She has defended some of the best girls in the state holding them to below their average most of those games. Shoots 77% free throw average.

 

 

BISHOP LeBLOND

–Tatum Studer, Sophomore
Points/Game:10.3, Rebounds/Game: 4.2, Assists/Game: 2.1, Free Throw%: 67%, Field Goal %: 30%, Three-Point%: 30%, Three-Pointers Made: 39, Steals/Game: 3, Blocks/Game: 0.2
Tatum is a sophomore point guard. She hardly ever comes out of the game. We stick her on the other team’s best player. She drives, pullups, and shoots the 3pt shot well. By far the hardest working player I have ever coached. We would not have the wins we do without her. Tatum has very active hands on defense and averages 4 deflections per game. She is a great leader on and off the floor. I strongly believe she deserves to make the All Star Team. She was 1st team All District, All MEC Conference and All City.

–Shae Lewis, Sophomore
Points/Game: 9.8, Rebounds/Game: 5.8, Assists/Game: 2.2, Free Throw%: 67%, Field Goal %: 41%, Three-Point%: 30%, Three-Pointers Made: 19, Steals/Game:1.8, Blocks/Game: 0.2
Shae is a sophomore shooting guard. She by far is our best shooter. She can score from anywhere on the floor. Shae is our best offensive rebounder. Her height and length helps us on defense to get deflections and steals. Has good ball handling skills and often brings the ball up the floor for us. She has made all tournament teams in both tournaments this season. Very deserving of being on the All Star Team. Shae made 1st Team All District, honorable mention All Conference, and All City.

9.3 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 22 steals.

She guided a very young team to a record of 14-10 and a trip to the district semifinals, where we lost to Bishop LeBlond. Alaina is a great all-around player that can play inside or out.

Jake is one of the hardest working players I have had the privilege to coach. He has taken on more and more of a leadership role in his sophomore season. He is our best defender and always takes the challenge of guarding the other team’s best player. Jake has also increased his offense production by 6 points a game this season. Jake is every coach’s dream. He does absolutely everything that he is asked to the best of his ability.

6’9″ Forward that was a force inside that usually was doubled team in the paint and if he did not block the shot in the paint he altered many shot attempts in the paint.

 

MID-BUCHANAN

He was our leader of the team. Stats won’t be anything that just jumps out of you but if you saw him play, you knew what he meant to us. Led us in assists, 2nd in scoring and a great leader.

Trent played the most minutes on the team. He is our only point guard so there was lots of pressure on him to handle the ball. He also had to score, as our 2nd leading scorer only averaged 5.6 ppg. We didn’t win many games but without Trent, we probably would have been competitive in only a couple of games this season

 

SAVANNAH

–Wes Darnell – Sr
14.3 ppg, 5.95 Rpg, 1.24 Steals
2 time all MEC, 2 time all District, Wes is a good player and even better kid. #1 ranked in his class 3 year varsity player

–Quay Jeter – Sr
10.43 ppg, 2.95 assists/game, 2.0 steals/ game
Quay is an all MEC/all district player, One could easily argue Quay is the best point guard we have had at Savannah the past 20 years. 3 year varsity player at Savannah+

WINSTON

–Jakub Hisel (senior)
Jakub made the KKWK team last year and had an even better year this year. His team went 24-2 this season and his career record as a 4-year starter is 95-11.
Statistically, he was pretty much top 2 in all statistical categories (including fouls lol). He had great value to his team on BOTH sides of the floor. He could shoot the 3 and help bring the ball up the floor against full court pressure yet had to guard the other team’s best POST player. He made the HDC All Defensive team, HDC All Conference and MBCA All District teams …last year and this year as well. Happy to see the fantastic young man he has grown into…softball, baseball, basketball, classroom, and Eagle Scout.
