Sophomore forwards Sharan Turner (Gonzales, La., East Ascension) and Diamond Wraggs (Louisville) were voted MACJC Honorable Mention All-State.

She shot 52 percent from the floor for the season. Wraggs is expected to sign with Mississippi Valley State University, along with teammate Whitney Waters (Heidelberg).

The trio helped the Lady Warriors to an 18-6 record and a berth in the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 23 Tournament.
