No. 8 Barbers Hill Eagles

Bryan Harris knows how to build winning programs.
He did it at Manvel and enters year 21 of his career with 551 career wins. Harris is rinsing and repeating his magic touch at Barbers Hill. The Eagles went 18-10 a year ago, before falling in the Area Round to Foster.
Heading into this season with four starters back, Harris should feel good about his squad. Leading the group will be Rachel Sarlls, who averaged 15 points and six rebounds per game a year ago.
Also back in the fold is Cynthia LeCompte (10 ppg, 7 rpg), Jo Trevino (6 ppg, 3 spg) and Shandi Smith (5 ppg, 5 rpg).

According to Harris, the keys to success this year is “defense intensity” and “discipline” as they will try to follow their “One Fly, We All Fly” team motto for 2022.

No. 4 Shadow Creek Sharks
Last season was a big year for Shadow Creek, which was in its first year playing at the Class 6A level.
Despite taking the step up to the next level, LaToya Micheaux-Giles’ squad reached its first Regional Championship in program history after getting to the Regional Semifinals the year before as a Class 5A program.
The Sharks are once again loaded as Micheaux-Giles enters year six of leading the program. Coming off a 25-5 season, Shadow Creek returns five starters, making them a favorite to get back to the Regional Tournament.
R’Mani Taylor is the one that gets things going. The senior averaged 15 points and 4.3 assists per game a year ago on the way to a District Offensive Player of the Year award. Brooklin Brown was right behind her with 11.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, earning her a first-team, all- district nod.

Acacia Edmond is another name to remember after the junior averaged 5.4 points per game garnering her a second-team, all-district award. Another name to remember at the Creek is Alana Trail, who is a shooting guard.
Watch out for the Sharks in the water again in 2022.

No. 5 Kingwood Park Panthers
Kingwood Park was one of the surprise teams in 2021.
The Panthers blazed through the regular season, posting a perfect 24-0 overall record, and going 14-0 in District 20-5A play. Once in the playoffs, Kingwood Park made a run to Regional Quarterfinals for only the second time in program history before falling to College Station and finishing the year 26-1.
The Panthers do have to replace some pieces like first-teamer Aliyah Bustamante but do bring back District 20-5A Offensive MVP Savannah Wilson, who verbally committed to Sienna in the offseason. Wilson averaged 15 points and 12.4 rebounds per game a year ago. Biva Byrd, who is the younger sister of North Texas soccer star Allie Byrd, also returns after a first-team, all-district season a year ago as does second-teamer Matti McDaniel. Byrd averaged an impressive double double for the year scoring 14.1 points per night and grabbing 13.1 boards. McDaniel averaged 7.1 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.

This team has some offensive firepower for reigning District 20-5A Coach of the Year Leigh Ann Wolfe. The keys to success for Wolfe in 2022 include “defensive pressure, finishing shots around the basket and using lessons learned last year to grow”. The motto for Kingwood Park this year is “As ONE – Only Need Everyone”.

No. 6 Atascocita Eagles
The Eagles of Atascocita have had a consistent presence in the Regional Quarterfinals, reaching it three of the last four seasons.
In 2018 and 2019, the Eagles got to the Regional Tournament. Veronica Johnson enters year seven of leading Atascocita. Coming off a 22-4 year, where they got to the Regional Quarters, the Eagles bring back three starters from that squad.
Leading the locker room will be Bucknell University-commit Blake Matthews, who is the reigning District MVP after averaging 13 points, 5.5 assists and 3.7 steals per game. Another key returner includes Kori Fenner, who was a first-team, all-district pick after averaging 13 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game a year ago. Fenner is the “defensive leader” of the team and can make it rain from beyond the arc.

Other names to remember include Aspen Edwards – the younger sister of Eagle legend Carsen Edwards – Jaiden Higginbotham and Tamya Tennant. The motto for this year’s team is “Go Get It!” and now we will see if they can do just that.
