The Booneville Lady Blue Devils claimed their first state basketball championship and added some more postseason hardware.

Booneville, which finished 28-6 en route to the Class 3A championship, claimed the league’s top two awards and two of the five spots on the annual first team.

Michael Smith and assistants Brian Windham and Micah Moment were named Coaching Staff of the Year. The group, which led the Devils to the 3A boys title in 2011, took over the program just prior to the start of the season.

Adallice Young was named the six-deep league’s Player of the Year.

Young also joined lone senior Dashiyah Agnew, who had a game-high 20 points and was named Player of the Game in the title contest, on the first team.

Belmont, which claimed the North Half title over Booneville before falling in the championship contest, had two first team honorees in Katelyn Nunley and Elisiah Jones.

Kossuth’s Parrish Tice rounded out the squad. The Lady Aggies claimed the regular-season title and finished second in the league tournament.

Five players, including Alcorn Central’s Lauren McCreless and Alexis Harmon, and Kossuth’s Baylee Turner, were named second team.

Coaches also selected a five-deep third team.
