Lake Arthur Lady Tiger sophomore point guard Carly Hay proved to be a holy terror for opposing coaches to stop this past season, and for that reason, the talented youngster was selected to the District 5-2A Girls’ Basketball All-District First Team compiled recently.
Hay, who averaged over 16 points, four rebounds and six assists for Coach Becky Meaux’s second place squad, was double-teamed and boxed for just about every district contest she participated in, but still made life miserable for league foes. With two years remaining in her stellar career, Hay will be the centerpiece of next year’s Lady Tiger team.
Making the prestigious Second Team were fellow Lady Tiger sophomores Keyontae Campbell and Kadie Bonin.
Campbell, a physical post player, put up 10 points, six rebounds and dished off a couple of assists per game. Campbell continually provided an offensive threat inside the paint and played great defense, too.
Bonin’s stats might not knock you down, but the totality of her efforts made her one of Lake Arthur’s most valuable performers. Bonin accounted for four points, eight rebounds, and almost five assists per contest, while supplying excellent defense in the process. A versatile player, Bonin played both guard and forward for the Lady Tigers.
Named to the Honorable Mention Team were senior center Samantha LeJeune and sophomores Ashalun Brown (guard) and Devyn Trahan (forward).
LeJeune was an offensive force for the Lady Tigers, scoring on the low blocks and on rebounds off missed shots. An excellent defender, LeJeune led the Lady Tigers in blocked shots this season.
Brown was a key player in the transition phase for the Lady Tigers, using her speed and quick hands to steal the ball and convert easy layups. Brown’s slashing moves to the bucket put pressure on opposing defenses all year.
Trahan used her height and a soft shooting touch to score buckets inside for the Lady Tigers, helping them to a surprising second place finish in district. A versatile performer, Trahan played both forward and center this past year.
The MVP of the First Team was Welsh senior forward Lauren Pickle, who averaged 22 points and 12 rebounds per game.
