Lady Broncos place two on all-county team

Elementary girls teams faced a dilemma when facing the Boyd Lady Broncos this season. If you try to take away Rhiannon Hoover on the outside, Anna Bain would pound the glass for easy points. Pack the paint to stop Bain and Hoover would light up the scoreboard with 3-pointers.
Hoover and Bain are a big reason why the Lady Broncos finished the regular season with a 10-0 record. Their great seasons also landed them on the Southern Standard All-County team.
Irving College guard Callie Cathcart, Eastside guard Rylan Moore and Dibrell forward Sianna Womack join Hoover and Bain on the all-county first team.
Hoover’s exploits on the court at J.K. Stanley Gymnasium are already legendary as the eighth-grade guard splits her time between elementary basketball and high school games with the Lady Broncos. Hoover dominates at the 7-8 grade level, oftentimes drawing double or triple teams to keep the 3-point shooting specialist from getting open looks. Hoover was still able to lead the league in scoring by averaging 11.8 points per game despite the constant double teams.
Bain was often the recipient of easy baskets as opponents focused their attention on Hoover as she finished in the top 10 in league scoring. Where Bain really stood out was on the other end as she anchored a stout Lady Bronco defense. Bain was the team leader in blocks and rebounds as her imposing presence in the paint deterred opponents from driving to the rim.
Cathcart led a resurgence for the Lady Tigers this season as Irving College finished the regular season in third place with a 6-4 record. With the ability to drive or shoot, Cathcart was able to keep opponents on their heels as she nearly eclipsed 100 points this season. Cathcart scored 12 points in back-to-back games when the Lady Tigers started the season 2-0.
Moore was a jack-of-all-trades for the Lady Bulldogs this season. With the size and strength to play post and the handles of a guard, Moore often facilitated the Eastside offense. Moore also drew the assignment on defense of guarding opposing team’s top offensive players and she excelled in the role. Moore had a season-high 14 points when Eastside nearly upset the Dibrell Lady Wildcats at home Jan. 14.
In that game Jan. 14 at Eastside Gym, Womack showed why she was one of the big post players in the league. Womack scored her season high as well with 14 points in a 35-32 victory. Womack paced the Dibrell offense this year with an average of 7.3 points per game.
Making the all-county second team were Centertown guard Alli Howard, Dibrell guard Bailey Barrett, Morrison forward Tevan Holder, Irving College forward Jordan Bess and Boyd forward Mackinzie Pistole.
