Joining Ragland and Pappas on the all-district first team was senior guard Courtney Peña. Peña was the Lady Rams' second leading scorer during district with a total of 78 points, but made her living as an invaluable defensive force.
"Courtney was our best defender on the top of the press and at the guard position," Holman said. "Her quick hands and feet were able to create many turnovers by the other team."
Earning second-team honors were senior post Ashlynn Robinson and junior Tabby Santibanez.
Santibanez was the Lady Rams' third leading scorer with 76 points and leading rebounder, snagging 165 boards at only 5-foot-5.
Robinson finished second in rebounding with 110 and was usually the Lady Rams' go-to gal to guard the opposing team's biggest post players.
"Ashlynn did an excellent job inside the lane on defense and rebounding," Holman said. "Even though she’s not that big, she plays big. Those are going to be big shoes to fill."
Lady Rams earning honorable mentions included junior guards Riley Bullock and Pam Hopkins. Both Bullock and Hopkins were valuable shooters that had a knack for getting hot from three-point range.
The Lady Rams also excelled off the court, with nine students earning all-academic status, including Peña, Robinson, Santibanez, Bullock, Hopkins, Ragland, Katie Rivera, Carson Couger and Scarlett Eaton. Mineral Wells placed more on the academic all-district team than any other school in District 6-3A, a feat that made Holman especially proud.
"I was also extremely proud of the fact that we had the most on the Academic All-District list as well," she said. "These girls work hard in the classroom and their efforts have paid off!"
