The Pettus Lady Eagles and Eagles garnered several District 31-A postseason basketball awards this year.

The Lady Eagles had Lindsay Parker named to the first team all-district squad. Chloe Garza and Jessica Stanley earned second team status for the Pettus girls and coach Darcy Siddon.

Eight Lady Eagles earned Academic All-District honors by maintaining a 90-plus average in their classroom work along with being in good standing on the basketball team. The eight included Kelsey Brown, Marissa Carrizales, Savannah Del Bosque, Chloe Garza, Hannah Huskey, Amanda Montez, Simona Ramirez and Hailee Schauer.

On the boys’ side of the all-district picks, the Eagles had McKinzie Torres selected as the Defensive Player of the Year and Clay Brown was named the Newcomer of the Year for District 31-A.

Two Eagles were selected to the district’s first team as Ryan Beck and Joe Jefferson were so honored. Second team selections included Hunter Tomlin, who missed four district games due to injury. Honorable mention status went to Eric Montez and Ulises Juarez.

The players earning a place on the Academic All-District squad include Ryan Beck, Clay Brown, Casey Jones, McKinzie Torres and Eric Montez.

The Eagles made the playoffs this year with a young team and will be looking for a return trip next year.

“This basketball season was a lot of fun. We relied pretty heavily on several young players this year, and those young guys really improved each week over the course of the season,” said head coach Steve Marbach.

“It was fun watching them develop, and I’m already excited about our potential for next year.”

The Eagles will lose three seniors from this year’s squad.

“We certainly will miss our seniors from this year. McKinzie Torres, Joe Jefferson, and Phillip Lantz played well for us all year and provided some great leadership,” Marbach added.

“Those guys are going to be tough to replace.”

Eagle Joe Jefferson has been selected to play in the Coastal Bend College All-Star contest on Saturday at 2 p.m.
