All District Honors

The high school basketball season is fast-breaking toward climactic state championships and the postseason presentation of honors is tipping off. Georgetown Lady Eagles are off to a fast start in that category after a season in which they swept the District 18-5A championship with a perfect 12-0 record and advanced to the Region III-5A area finals. When the seven 18-5A head coaches met recently to select the all-district squad, they placed eight of coach Rhonda Farney’s players on the honors squad, including four first-teamers — senior forward/post Jaelyn Knight, junior post McCall Hampton, junior guard Kylie Ellsworth and sophomore point guard Graci Harris.  Also, Knight was named the district’s Offensive Player of the Year and Harris was named Newcomer of the Year.Other Lady Eagles honored were senior guard/forward Samari O’Brien on the second team and three honorable mention choices — senior guard Ali Isbell, senior post Jade Smith and junior post MacKenzy Mouton.

 

Five of the Lady Eagles selected to this season’s 18-5A team are repeaters from last year’s 19-5A squad.  Knight was a first-team pick, Hampton was a tri-Newcomer of the Year despite an injury that cost her the last part of the season, Ellsworth was a second-team pick and Isbell and J. Smith were honorable mention choices.If the Lady Eagles did well on the court in their 23-11 season, they may have done even better on the 18-5A Academic All-District list with 12 selections. Those honored were players Isbell, Knight, Ellsworth, Hampton and Harris along with junior guard Hailey Hanson, junior guard Hailey Smith and junior forward Maya Perry along with junior managers Rachel Hreine and Lexi Mullen and student trainers Jessica Roppolo, a sophomore, and Amber Billingsley, a junior.Isbell and Knight were honored on an even higher academic stage as they were named to the Texas Girls Coaches Association’s All-State Academic Team.

“I was very pleased that we had so many girls named Academic All-District, “Farney said. “It is a great indicator of success in college and life. “I am excited that so many of our players were honored .” Statistically, Knight and Hampton were the leaders for Georgetown during the team’s perfect run to the 18-5A title. The 5-foot-11 Knight scored 119 points and grabbed 68 rebounds in district play, while the 5-9 Hampton scored 115 points and pulled in 101 boards. GHS outscored its district opponents by an average of 27.3  points a game. Other superlatives were East View’s Dave Walla, Coach of the Year; East View’s Alex Stone, Defensive Player of the year; and Manor junior De’Mya Young and Hutto senior Tamryn Burks, co-Most Valuable Players.
