Hutchison Basketball Receives Top Honors from Daily Memphian
Hutchison is proud to announce that our Sting varsity basketball team garnered major honors from the Daily Memphian! Senior Carmyn Harrison was named player of the year, Coach Thomas Jones was named coach of the year, and five Hutchison girls were named to the All-Metro Team for Division 2. Honorees were selected based on regular- and post-season performance and made in consultation with area coaches.
The Daily Memphian article notes that Harrison has played since 8th grade and this season averaged 11.5 points 7.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 3.0 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. She was a Division 2-AA Miss Basketball finalist. In addition, she was nominated for Gatorade player of the year in the state of Tennessee and will play in the Basketball Coaches Association of Tennessee All-Star game on Saturday, March 27, in Murfreesboro, TN.
Coach Jones guided the Sting to the best season in school history, with the team finishing 22-2 and capturing its first state championship. The Sting beat Knoxville Catholic 41-34 in the Division 2-AA final earlier in March.
The five Hutchison players selected for the All-Metro Division 2 team are Kaia Barnett, senior; Maxine Engel, senior; Carmyn Harrison, senior; Maddie Prather, senior; and Berklee Scifres, a sophomore.
