GIRLS

Player of the Year

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

When you’re the two-time Most Valuable Player of the state basketball tournament and have led your team to consecutive titles, is there really any doubt? And the scary thing is she’s just a junior so, teams have to contend with here 25.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game averages next year.

Coach of the Year

Leland Bearden, Smyer

The easy part for Bearden came last year in getting the Lady Cats to the state tournament and winning it. It was much tougher repeating as state champions with everyone taking their best shot at Smyer, but he guided them through beautifully to back-to-back crowns.

FIRST TEAM

Ashton Meeks, G, 5-8, Jr., Trinity Christian

Trinity Christian’s second-half surge led to a stellar run in the postseason that carried the Lady Lions al the way to the TAPPS 4A semifinals before they lost to Houston Westbury. Meeks was a big part of that, averaging 15.9 points per game.

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

If not for Fowler, Logan would be hands down the player of the year, and likely would have led the Nettes to their second state championship in three years. Sudan, led by Logan’s 24.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game, were Smyer’s biggest challengers to defending the crown.

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

In winning the crown this season, Smyer was much more frontcourt-oriented with the talent Bearden brought back, and Farr was a big reason for that. Her ability to take defensive focus off of Fowler was huge, and she thrived down low by scoring 13.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

Brittney Liggins, F, 5-7, Jr., Tahoka

Tahoka’s only drawback on the year was having to play in the same district as Smyer. The Lady Bulldogs finished third but put together a great run through the playoffs, with Liggins leading the way. She averaged 14.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 2.1 assists per game.

Taylor Moore, C, 6-1, Soph., Whitharral

Just outside Smyer, the Whitharral Lady Panthers also put together a magical season, culminating in an appearance in the Class 1A Division II state finals before falling to Neches. Moore was the leader, averaging 9.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.

SECOND TEAM

Jenny Hall, F, 5-9, Sr., Lubbock Christian

Gabbie Guerrero, G, 5-8, Soph., Olton

Mattie Turner, G, 5-5, Soph., Tahoka

Julia Vasquez, F, 5-7, Sr., Springlake-Earth

Bailey Black, F, 5-10, Jr., Sudan

BOYS

Player of the Year

Parker Wentz, G, 5-9, Jr., Trinity Christian

A near-unstoppable force for the Lions, Wentz was the motor that drove Trinity Christian to a second-place finish in TAPPS District 1-4A play behind eventual state champion Arlington Grace Prep. Wentz averaged 22.8 points per game, hit 42.1 percent from 3-point range and was 87.4 percent from the free throw line.

Coach of the Year

Todd Duncan, Trinity Christian

Duncan put a cap on a stellar high school coaching career in 2010-11 by taking the Lions back to their eighth appearance in the TAPPS state semifinals. He also won 11 district titles and the 1999 state crown, which he now takes across town as the new men’s coach at Lubbock Christian University.

FIRST TEAM

Dave Miller, G, 5-11, Jr., Trinity Christian

Though Wentz was the offensive catalyst for the Lions, Miller was just as important, and his shooting ability helped take the pressure off Wentz all season long. Miller averaged 10.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game and hit 41.6 percent from 3-point range.

Clayton Blount, G, 6-3, Sr., Anton

Anton’s outstanding season and run to the Class 1A Division II regional final came as a result of a complete team effort, but Blount was the force driving that Bulldog offense for most of the season. He averaged 21.2 points, 6.1 assist and 6.1 rebounds per game.

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

Even though the Eagles failed to make the playoffs, their presence made District 7-IIA one of the toughest on the South Plains. Arguello, also a standout in football, was the offensive MVP of that league after averaging 20.3 points and 12.8 rebounds per game.

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

Hale Center flew under the radar most of the season, but the Owls were a dominant force in District 4-IA, reaching three rounds in the postseason before bowing out. Johnson was outstanding in the paint both offensively and defensively.

Tanner Hall, G, 5-9, Sr., Tahoka

Tahoka showed great balance in running away for the District 6-IA championship, and Hall made the Bulldogs very difficult to stop on the outside. He averaged 14.1 points, 5.4 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game in leading Tahoka to the third round of the postseason.

SECOND TEAM

Blake Turner, G, 5-10, Jr., Tahoka

Damien Vidales, F, 6-3, Jr., Seagraves

Houston Quintanilla, G, 6-2, Jr., Meadow

Torey Jimenez, G, 5-6, Jr., Olton

Jaron Bell, C, 6-5, Sr., Plains
