HORNBECK — For the first time in a number of years, the Hornbeck Lady Hornets reached the Ladies Top 28.

And although things didn’t quite work out the way they had planned, the Lady Hornets proved to be one of the top teams in the state.

As a result, the Lady Hornets had a number of players named to the District 3-C squad by the coaches, including picking up Most Valuable Player honors as senior Hannah Dahlhoff won the award.

Dahlhoff, who scored 35 points in the Lady Hornets’ loss in the semifinals, was chosen by the coaches as the league’s MVP as she averaged 14 points and seven rebounds per game, leading Hornbeck to a No. 5 seed and semifinal appearance.

Head coach Matthew Killian, who was selected as the 3-C Coach of the Year, was very proud of his senior leader.

“Hannah Dahlhoff proved exactly why she was the District 3-C MVP this year,” Killian said. “She played with grittiness, determination and the will to win. I’m very proud of her, as I am of all my girls.”

Dahlhoff was joined on the first-team by Hornbeck mates Jayda James and Hannah Mitchell. James was responsible for 13 points per game, while Mitchell averaged 14 points and nine boards per contest.

Rounding out the first team was Evans junior Riley Haus, who averaged 14.5 points per game as she led the Lady Eagles to the state quarterfinals, and Ebarb’s Camryn Cartinez, who scored 15.5 points per game.

The members of the second team were the Evans duo of Madison Gollihugh and Triniti Bridges, Ebarb’s Madison Boggs, Simpson’s Kodi Miller and Pleasant Hill’s Sha’Diamond Frazier.

The honorable mention selections to the team included the Ebabr duo of Bryn Remedies and Madelyn Wilson, the Hornbeck duo of Jaida Davis and Kayleigh Park, Chloe Benjamin of Evans, Simpson’s Lexie Merriman and Olivia Edwards and the Pleasant Hill trio of MarKayla Jones, Kania Holmes and Christiana Jones.
