Lady Panthers hoops members earn honors, to play in All-Star game


Honors keep coming the way of the Alba-Golden Lady Panther basketball squad even though its season ended a month ago.

Coach Blake Hamrick’s squad posted a 29-8 season record and advanced to the semifinals of the Region II playoffs.

This past week Lady Panther scoring ace Shelby Wright, a 5-6 senior, was selected to the Texas Basketball Coaches Association Class 3A All-State team. Wright and 5-8 senior teammate Gracie Pendergrass were also selected to the TBCA All-Region team.

Wright was also selected to the All-State Academic team as was teammate Reygan Arrington.

On Saturday, April 1, Wright and Pendergrass will collect additional honors for Alba-Golden as they have been selected to play in the Azalea Orthopedic All-Star game in Tyler. The girls all-star contest will begin at 5:30 p.m. and that will be followed at 7:30 p.m. by a boys all-star game. The games will be played at the Tyler Junior College Wagstaff Gym.
