Fresh off its run to the girls basketball state tournament, Argyle landed a few notable players on the 10-3A all-district team.
Junior center Delaney Sain was named the district’s offensive player of the year, while freshman Vivian Gray was selected as 10-3A’s newcomer of the year. Sain and Gray were also named to the Class 3A all-tournament team after Argyle’s loss to Waco La Vega in the 3A state championship game on Saturday.
The rest of Argyle’s starting lineup — junior Jesse Sheridan, freshman Madison Ralston and sophomore Olivia Gray — were all first-team selections.
The Argyle duo that shined throughout the postseason for a very young Lady Eagles squad was not the only local players to earn superlative awards in their respective districts.
Krum senior Caylee Thomas was District 9-3A’s offensive player of the year. Thomas’ teammate, sophomore Haley Lewis, was tabbed as the district’s sixth man of the year. Krum lost to Frisco Lone Star in the first round of the 3A playoffs, one year after the Lady Cats reached the Class 3A state semifinals.
In District 5-4A, Guyer senior Quamese Moss was named the defensive player of the year, while junior Jada Calloway was the district’s sixth man of the year. The two Lady Wildcats helped the team reach the area round of the Class 4A playoffs, where Guyer lost to Cleburne by two points.
Guyer freshman Lauren Heard and sophomore Bre Wickware earned first-team nods, joining Lake Dallas sophomore Ashley Hayes and Denton junior Alex McIntosh.
Guyer junior Ola Akinniyi, Guyer senior Sarah Mack, Lake Dallas senior Taylor Davis and Denton senior April Pena all made 5-4A’s second team.
Ryan junior Carissa Sanders represented the Lady Raiders on District 5-5A’s first team, while junior Ashtyn Lovett landed on the second team. Sanders played a large part for a Ryan team that was decimated by injuries throughout the season. The Lady Raiders narrowly missed out on the 5A playoffs.
