For their hard work and determination on the hardwood this season, several members of the Bullard Panther varsity basketball team were recently honored by being among the district’s best athletes on the District 15-4A All-District accolades list.
The Panthers were able to pick up a First Team All-District selection this season, as junior shooting guard Evan Hodges led the team with the special recognition.
Junior point guard Will McCowin was also recognized for his abilities on the court this season, as he was named as a Second Team All-District selection.
A trio of Panther varsity basketball players was also listed as Honorable Mention award recipients by District 15-4A, including junior shooting guard Ty Crayton, junior small forward Jagger Haynie, and senior power forward Austin Turgeau.
"Although we had a rough year, I'm glad our district saw how deserving these young men were to make the All-District team,” said Monta Jeffley, Bullard Panther basketball head coach. “Thankfully we're returning most of our players nominated, which were mostly juniors, so they'll be returning for a senior season."
The Bullard Panther varsity basketball team finished the 2016-2017 season with an overall record of 6-23, 0-10 in district play.
