Area athletes selected to All-Lake Country Conference basketball teams
It’s safe to say the 2020-21 basketball campaign was unlike any other due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some squads were fortunate enough to play most of their games, while others had to deal with cancelations and postponements.
Nevertheless, the athletes gave it their all, and their determination didn’t go unnoticed as they were named to the All-Lake Country Conference basketball teams.
The Plainview and Dickson high school girls basketball teams led the way as Indians senior Reagan Chaney was selected as All-LCC Offensive Player of the Year, while Comets junior Audrey Young garnered Defensive Player of the Year honors.
Chaney averaged 14 points, five rebounds and two steals per game to help lead Plainview to a 16-8 record and a No. 17 ranking in Class 4A.
Young was just as instrumental for the Lady Comets, finishing with averages of 10.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest.
The pair were also named to the All-LCC first team along with a number of other area athletes.
