All State Honors

Georgetown senior forward/post McCall Hampton has been named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches and Texas Girls Coaches Association Class 5A All-State Basketball Teams along with being a TABC All Region III-5A selection. In addition, Hampton was named to the TGCA Academic All-State team along with senior teammates Kylie Ellsworth and Hailey Hanson — both guards — and senior manager Rachel Heine. Also honored by the TGCA was junior guard Graci Harris, who was named to the 6A-5A Red team for the organization’s all-star contest at its annual convention, which is currently scheduled this summer in Arlington.

Hampton had previously been named the Outstanding Defensive Player in District 18-5A this season and to the Academic All-District Team with Ellsworth, Harris, Hanson and Heine along with several other Lady Eagles.Ellsworth was scheduled to celebrate her signing with traditional NAIA power Wayland Baptist this past Monday, but the event was postponed indefinitely by the Coronavirus crisis. “We are so pleased that McCall Hampton was named TABC All-Region and All-State as well as TGCA All-State,” GHS head coach Rhonda Farney said. “McCall’s  motor is always running. She is an outstanding defender with an uncanny ability to track the ball and rebound. She is able to score as well as lead and has been a standout in the classroom too.” The 5-foot-9 Hampton was the only 18-5A player named to either the TABC all-state or all-regional teams, while Manor freshman Jamiya Davis was the only other 18-5A player selected to the TGCA all-state team.

Farney, who directed the Lady Eagles to a second-place 10-2 finish in 18-5A and a 26-10 season record, also was pleased with her team’s academic performance on a state-wide level. “I’m also pleased that Hampton, Ellsworth, Hanson and Heine we’re named to the TGCA All-State Academic team,” Farney said. “What this means is that in addition to the hours spent practicing basketball and managing for the basketball team everyday, these Lady Eagles went home and hit the books with equal gusto. Their ability to prioritize and manage their time will ensure their future successes.” As for Harris, who will be Georgetown’s only returning starter next season, Farney said of her point guard, “Graci leads from the front. She is able to defend and score as well as pass the ball with precision. In addition, she is a leader on our team. 

Farney said the following on Ellsworth’s delayed signing: “We will celebrate Kylie’s signing with Wayland Baptist the first time it is safe to do so. We are so proud of her academic and basketball excellence. Kylie can play point guard or shooting guard and her ability to defend as well as get downhill and shoot the mid-range jumper is going to make her extremely successful at the next level.” Ellsworth is the third of this year’s seniors to sign with a college as Hampton is going to NCAA Division II St. Edward’s and post/forward Mackenzy Mouton will continue her career at NCAA Division III Howard Payne.
