Girls

Player of the Year

Danielle Logan, G, 5-9, Sr., Sudan

Logan made an impact for Sudan as a freshman starter on its 2009 state title team, but she dominated throughout 2011-112 in leading the Nettes back to the top. She averaged a whopping 25.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 3.3 steals per game

Coach of the Year

Lisa Logan, Sudan

For two years, the Nettes might have been the best team in the state not at the state tournament. But all that changed in 2012 as longtime assistant Lisa Logan took over the program and guided it to its the state championship, winning a title as a head coach, assistant coach and player.

First Team

Haley Fowler, F, 6-0, Sr., Smyer

No player in the state was better the past two seasons than the two-time Class 1A Player of the Year, and though Smyer came up short of a repeat, Fowler finished with a great senior year, averaging 25.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.2 steals per game.

Bailee Black, F, 5-9, Sr., Sudan

Black might have been the most versatile player on the Sudan team, showing the ability to play tough inside and hit a big 3-pointer. She finished the season averaging 12.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

Taylor Moore, F, 6-1, Sr., Whitharral

While Sudan was the region’s best in Division I, Whitharral controlled Division II for the second straight year, making another trip to the state tournament. Moore was a big reason why, averaging 15.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

Adriana Corrales, F, 5-9, Sr., Plains

If not for an incredible fourth quarter in the regional quarterfinals by Sudan, Plains could very well have been in the state tournament. Corrales was huge for the Cowgirls this past season, pouring in 10.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 6.3 steals per game.

Anitria Flowers, F, 5-8, Sr.,

Sundown

Sundown proved that even third-place teams in a district can make deep playoff runs, as the Lady Red reached the third round behind the effort of Flowers, who averaged 11.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.

Second Team

Haley Welch, G, 5-6, Jr., Plains

Gabbie Guerrero, G, 5-7, Jr., Olton

Kennedy Farr, C, 6-2, Jr., Smyer

Jasmine Weaver, F, 5-10, Jr., Sudan

Ashlen Albus, F, 5-9, Sr., Whitharral

Boys

Player of the Year

Torey Jimenez, G, 5-9, Sr., Olton

Olton put together the best season in school history that culminated with a trip to the state tournament. The play of Jimenez was key in the Mustangs’ run as he averaged 18.8 points, 3.8 assists and 4.1 steals per game.

Coach of the Year

C.J. Villegas, Olton

The Mustangs had come up short of a state tournament berth in each of the last three years, but Villegas brought what Olton was missing and led them to a berth in Austin. He molded a senior-laden team with key newcomers to forge a historic season in Olton.

First Team

Dearius Poindexter, G, 6-2, Jr.,
Hale Center

Even though they lost early in the playoffs, the Hale Center Owls might have been the most talented team on the South Plains, led by the dynamic guard Poindexter, who averaged 17.7 points, 6.0 rebounds 4.5 assists and 2.3 steals per game.

Travis Arguello, F, 6-4, Sr.,
Southland

Already having put up huge numbers the last two seasons, Arguello capped his senior season with a solid effort, averaging 18.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game.

Damian Vidales, F, 6-3, Sr.,
Seagraves

Had it not been for the incredible run by Olton, Seagraves would have been a solid Region I representative at the state tournament, and were led during the season by Vidales, who poured in 18.1 points and grabbed 13.5 rebounds per game.

Tate Bartlett, C, 6-2, Sr., Smyer

With much of the attention on the Smyer girls’ team, Bartlett and the Bobcats showed they can play some top-notch basketball as well. Bartlett was a force inside, averaging 14.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.

Corie Ramirez, G, 5-9, Sr., New Deal

New Deal put together a solid basketball campaign with a third-place finish in District 4-1A, and Ramirez was a key factor in that surge, averaging 17.6 points per game.

Second Team

Tyrell Johnson, C, 6-6, Sr., Hale Center

Layne Rossi, G, 5-9, Soph, Hale Center

Tommy Guerrero, F, 6-1, Sr., Olton

Brennan Fowler, C, 6-3, Fr., Smyer
