  • Junior guard Alayah Mitchell leads a contingent of four Sterlington Lady Panthers on the All-District 2-2A girls basketball team.
    District champion Jonesboro-Hodge claimed two of the five first-team spots and swept the individual awards.
    Jakita Sampson is the Most Valuable Player, while Joshua Kador was named Coach of the Year. A second-team All-District pick as a sophomore last season, Sampson elevated her game to MVP status as a junior. Sampson and Kador led the Lady Tigers to a 26-4 record and a second round playoff appearance.
    Juniors LaParis Robinson of J-Hodge and Shakeria Kelly of Ferriday earned first-team All-District acclaim for the second straight season.
    Rounding out the first unit are Mitchell and Homer senior Americana Walker.
    Mitchell scored at a 13.6 clip to lead the Lady Panthers in scoring. She reached double figures in 23 of the Lady Panthers' 28 games, including four games of 20-plus points. Mitchell scored a career-high 23 points vs. district runner-up Homer, 22 vs. J-Hodge, 21 against Ferriday and 21 in the Lady Panthers' 53-40 first round playoff loss to Doyle.
    Chosen to the second team were Homer senior Kimberly Jackson, Lakeside junior Shanae Collins, Lake Providence sophomore Kojerin Hawkins, Sterlington sophomore LaTasha English and Ferriday freshman Jada Griggs.
    Despite missing four games with an injury, English averaged 9.8 points per game. English scored in double digits 12 times, including a season-high 18-point effort.
    Senior guard Jasmine Washington and sophomore forward Bronwyn Pepper are Sterlington's honorable mention selections.
    Also listed as honorable mention are junior Kierra Belton and sophomore Breanna Wayne of Jonesboro-Hodge; senior Jasmine Jenkins of Homer; senior Tamera Douglas of Lakeside; and juniors Destiny Willis, Shanequa Williams and Dasheneca Lee of Lake Providence.
