GC Basketball: Mildred coach and players dominate 23-2A All-District girls team

Corsicana — Mildred’s  Lady Eagles, who had one of the best seasons in school history, reaped some well deserved  post-season honors when the District 23-2A all-district basketball team was released Thursday.

Three Lady Eagles were named to the first team and Coach Dale Clement was named the Co-Coach of the Year along with Buffalo’s Jozette Jenkins.

Mildred’s Allison Hierholzer, a senior who averaged 15 points a game and had a career-high 32-point night in the playoffs, was named to the first team along with senior Shelby Adamson, who had a double-double for the season, averaging 12 points and 13 rebounds a game. Mildred’s sensational sophomore point guard Maddie Moore, who handed out six assists a night and averaged eight points while running the offense like a quarterback, was also named to the first team.

Mildred’s Callie Bland, a senior guard and defensive specialist who was the catalyst for Mildred holding nine of its 12 district opponents to 35 points or less, and Morgan McCreary, a junior who played the wing and was known for her tough defense and hard-nose play, were named to the second team.

Rice’s Ashton Metcalfe, a senior who led the Lady Bulldogs all year, Blooming Grove sophomore Hannah Southard, who led the Lady Lions, were also named to the second team.

Mildred’s Hierholzer, Bland and Adamson were all named to the District 23-2A All-Academic team.

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
