Class 2A

By LAMAR GAFFORD

Written for the LSWA

The Rayville Hornets completed a quest of perfection. The North Caddo Lady Rebels winning their fourth title in five years. The St. Katharine Drexel Lady Jackets earning their first title against a New Orleans rival.

The 2018 season can be summed up in one word for those three programs.

Historic.

Those three schools added some more extraordinary honors as they headline the Class 2A boys and girls LSWA All-State teams.

The Hornets swept the Class 2A boys individual top honors as junior Mylik Wilson and Damon West were named Class 2A boys MVP and Coach of the Year, respectively.

West guided the Hornets to a 35-0 record, thanks to players such as Wilson (18 points, 8 assists and 5 rebounds per game) leading the way in the rare perfect season.

On the girls side, North Caddo returned to the top of the mountain in Class 2A behind the playmaking abilities of Rice (26 points and 11 rebounds per game), as it continues its dynasty, while Rice earns the Class 2A girls MVP.

While the Lady Rebels were the best Class 2A non-select team, St. Katharine Drexel was the best select school as Terry Wilson earned Class 2A girls Coach of the Year by helping the school go 19-8 en route to its first championship win after a thriller with crosstown rival St. Mary’s Academy.

Wilson leads the boys first team, which has Dunham junior Jordan Wright (25.4 PPG), Episcopal senior Cameron Dumas (18.4), Riverside senior Jared Butler (28.0) and North Caddo senior Chris Thomas (20.0).

Rayville senior Nashaun Ellis (15.0 PPG), Country Day junior Kaleb Jenkins (21.0), Avoyelles Charter junior Aaron McGhee (15.6), Newman senior Riley Demps (15.6) and Dunham senior Oddyst Walker (19.2) earned second-team honors.

The girls first team is comprised of Rice, Northlake Christian sophomore Kyren Whittington (17.6 PPG), Lake Arthur senior Jamara Levy (17.0), Red River junior McKayia Hallmon (23.4) and Oakdale sophomore Sanaa St. Andre (21.3).

Rapides junior Naomi Lewis (17.8 PPG), Dunham senior Hannah Barrow (17.6), Notre Dame senior Alyssa Williams (15.6), St. Mary’s Academy freshman Tomyree Thompson (17.5) and Oakdale junior KaMaesha St. Andre (16.1) make up the girls second team.

Class 1A

By James Bewers

Written for the LSWA

The Lafayette Christian boys and girls basketball teams each repeated as state champions in Division IV, and both were led by Division I signees -- Greg Williams Jr. and Megan Abrams.

Williams and Abrams will now head to St. John’s and Alabama, respectively, having been named the best players in Class 1A for the 2017-2018 season.

For the second straight year, Williams Jr. was chosen as the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Most Valuable Player for the Class 1A boys All-State team. Abrams was selected as the LSWA’s MVP for the Class 1A girls All-State team.

Williams, who was a part of five LCA teams that reached the state tournament, averaged 14 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.5 steals per game this season. Named the 2018 All-Acadiana MVP and the Outstanding Player for 2017 Division IV title game, Williams Jr. finished his career with 2,078 points, 1,042 rebounds, 478 steals and 215 blocks.

Abrams, whose team lost only one game for the rest of the 2016-2017 season after she became eligible in January, averaged 20.3 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks per game this season. The 2018 All-Acadiana MVP was picked as the Outstanding Player for the 2017 Division IV title game.

White Castle’s Troy Green was selected as the boys Coach of the Year after leading the Bulldogs to a 24-8 record, including their second straight Class 1A state title. Delhi’s Emily Anderson was named the girls Coach of the Year after leading the Lady Bears to a 30-7 record, including the Class 1A crown.

Tensas’ Albert South (14.8 points), White Castle’s Tre Melancon (15.0), St. Mary’s Thomas Howell (20.0) and Hamilton Christian’s Michael Thomas (17.0) make up the rest of the boys first team. Merryville’s Andrea Cournoyer (30.5), Delhi’s Le’Shanae Stubblefield (22.0), Southern Lab’s Cailain Williams (24.0) and Arcadia’s DeAndre’a Alexander (13.5) round out the girls first team.

Class B

By DANIEL GREEN

Written for the LSWA

Holden and Simsboro returned to the top of the Class B championship mountain earlier this month.

Holden senior Kaylee Hughes and Simsboro senior Dee Levingston not only capped their respective careers by hoisting championship gold, but they were also honored by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association as the top players in Class B.

Hughes, a McNeese State signee, averaged 15.2 points per game for 35-1 Holden, who nudged Anacoco in the Class B finals in Alexandria, 40-39.

Levingston led Simsboro to the Class B championship, averaging 18.5 points per game, claiming a victory over 2017 champion Zwolle to close out the season.

Anacoco’s Tim Parker and Crescent City's Shaun Dumas were the Coach of the Year honorees on the teams selected by a panel of sportswriters from across the state.

Parker returned to Vernon Parish to take over an Anacoco program rich in tradition. He guided the Indians to the Class B title game and a 35-5 record overall.

Dumas and Crescent City once again reached the state tournament in 2018, finishing as the Division V runners-up.

Hicks head coach Neil Standifer was also considered for the honor.

Hughes is joined on the girls first team by sophomore sister and title game MVP Jaycee Hughes (16.1 ppg.), Fairview senior Maddisen Martin (25.1), Anacoco senior Cammy Hooks (18.0) and Florien senior Aja Law (14.7).

High-scoring Pitkin sophomore Garrett Edwards (29.2), Grace Christian senior Elijah Hampton (20.0), Zwolle senior LaDarius Cutright (15.4) and Crescent City senior Terrence Smith (13.1) joined Levingston on the boys first team.

Negreet senior Kelsey Thaxton (28.2), Stanley freshman McKayla Williams (20.9), Hicks freshman Chloe Wilbanks (19.5), Fairview sophomore Maggie Manuel (20.6) and Holden senior Kaitlyn Kropog (14.0) comprise the girls' second team.

The boys' second team included Skyline sophomore Decari Markray (24.0), senior Byron Joshua (10.5) of Crescent City, senior Tucker Arkin (15.2) of Episcopal of Acadiana, Simsboro sophomore Jakemin Abbey (16.5) and Hathaway junior Trey Blanchard (17.7).

Class C

By DANIEL GREEN

Written for the LSWA

The Summerfield basketball program swept top individual player honors on the 2018 Class C all-state team selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.

Seniors John Buggs and Mercedes Coleman were the leaders of their respective teams. Buggs averaged 23.2 points per game in guiding the Rebels to a Class C state title game win over Simpson, while Coleman netted 24.6 points per outing as she took the Lady Rebels to the LHSAA tournament in Alexandria, where they lost in the semifinals.

Jehovah-Jireh’s Dirk Ricks and Christ Episcopal's Kendell Richter garnered Coach of the Year honors after guiding their respective programs to Division V select championships.

Ricks won his second straight Coach of the Year honor over Summerfield veteran Randy Carlisle, who won a state title this year after losing seven of his top eight players from last year's state finalist squad. 

Richter, who led Christ Episcopal to its first state title in the school’s first season as an LHSAA member, was chosen over Atlanta's Daniel Greenhouse.

Joining Buggs on the boys first team was the Jehovah-Jireh senior duo of Trenton Payne (17.3 ppg.) and Donald Johnson III (18.1), Simpson senior Tanner Yates (20.5) and Singer senior Cameron Sandifer (27.0).

Coleman was joined on the girls first team by Plainview senior Kennedy Johnson (16.0), Atlanta junior Ariana Young (16.5), Plainview junior Alex Harrison (17.0) and Christ Episcopal's Gabby Leahy (21.0).

2017 All-State Basketball Teams

LSWA CLASS 5A ALL-STATE BASKETBALL TEAMS

By JIM DERRY
Written for the LSWA
Paring down nominees and choosing an All-State team, regardless of the sport, is generally a tough job for a sportswriter. But then, there are the no-doubters, and Destrehan’s Cara Ursin and Scotlandville’s Ja’Vonte Smart certainly fill that description.
Each winners of their respective LHSAA title games last month and each named Outstanding Player of said title games, Ursin and Smart head the Class 5A All-State basketball teams as selected by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
The remainder of the girls’ first team includes McKinley’s Alexius Horne, Ponchatoula’s Hailey Giaratano, John Curtis freshman Jerkalia Jordan and Barbe’s Brandi Williams.
The first ever three-time Gatorade Player of the Year, Ursin averaged 28 points and 14 rebounds per game for the 35-0 Wildcats in her final campaign before heading off to Baylor. She also had more than six assists per game. Smart, a junior, also was named the state’s top basketball player with a scoring average of 25.1 to go with his 8.7 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game and is a two-time Gatorade Player of the Year.
The remainder of the boys team includes Chalmette’s 7-foot center Mitchell Robinson, Bonnabel’s TJ Collins, Natchitoches Central’s Brandon Rachal and HL Bourgeois’ Anthony Rainey.
Ursin’s coach Angi Butler, who is leaving the gym to focus on being an administrator next school year, was selected as the girls Coach of the Year in leading Destrehan to that perfect mark and defeating top-seeded Barbe in the 5A championship game.
Maybe the surprise of the 5A teams in the largest classification comes in the form of Landry-Walker’s Brian Gibson, who was named Coach of the Year on the boys side. To start February, his Chargin’ Bucs were 13-12 and on a three-game losing streak in District 8-5A. From there, the team won their final four regular-season games, entered the Class 5A playoffs as the 22nd-seed and made a run all the way to the state championship, making it look easy.

Ellender High School dominated Class 4A basketball in a unique way. The Patriots won the 4A girls championship and finished as the boys runner-up.
As a result, the Terrebonne Parish schools swept the top individual honors on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 4A All-State teams. Terris McKay was voted the Outstanding Player on the girls squad, while Davontavean Martin won the same award on the boys team.

LSWA CLASS 2A ALL-STATE BASKETBALL

Written for the LSWA
Their method of attacking opponents was quite different. The results were more than enough to make Country Day’s Romin Williams and Micaela Wilson of Rayville the leaders of the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 2A All-State basketball teams.
A panel of sportswriters from across the state selected the teams that include players and coaches who competed for the LHSAA’s Class 2A and Division III titles.

Wilson (6-1) played both inside and out to help Rayville finish as the 2A runner-up. She averaged 24 points and 12 rebounds a game as a senior and is a Kansas signee.
Rayville coach Damon West and Madison Prep’s Dwayne Hayes grabbed the Coach of the Year honors after their schools squared off to decide both the boys/girls titles. West led Rayville to a 29-6 record and a runner-up boys finish in 2A to the Chargers. Hayes’ MPA girls finished 26-5 and won their first 2A title.
Rayville’s Michael “Pooh” Williams (10 points per game, 10 assists), Riverside Academy’s Jared Butler (20.4 points, 6.7 assists), The Dunham School’s Jordan Wright (25.6 points, 8.7 rebounds) and Madison Prep’s Josh LeBlanc (14.8 points, 10 rebounds) complete the boys first team.
