Lady Hornets’ trio garners post-season honors
EDITOR’S NOTE: Because the look back at each day in Bryant athletic history has been so favorably received during the time when there was no sports during the COVID-19 shutdown, BryantDaily.com will continue posting past stories of Bryant athletics either posted on BryantDaily.com (from 2009 to the present) or published in the Bryant Times (from 1998 to 2008).
On an almost all sophomore team, three sophomores for the Bryant Lady Hornets basketball team have earned post-season honors.
Point guard Tierra Trotter who averaged 10.4 points and 3.2 assists per game including a season-high 30 points in a win over Mount St. Mary Academy, was named all-State in Class 7A.
Celena Martin who, as a 5’6” forward, averaged over eight rebounds per game along with 7.4 points per outing, was named all-State Tournament.
And, in addition to Trotter and Martin, guard India Atkins was named all-conference in the 7A-Central. “India is a tremendous on-ball defender,” said Lady Hornets head coach Brad Matthews.
She averaged 5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 assists per game.
In the 2017-18 season, the young Bryant team finished 11-16 overall and 6-8 in conference play, earning a bid to the Class 7A State Tournament where they were ousted by a veteran Van Buren team.
