Carr, Moss named all-league

Staff Reports

Douglas High sophomores Hannah Carr and Alexa Moss were accorded first-team recognition on the recently announced all-Sierra League girls basketball team.

Douglas (11-15 overall, 8-8 league) was represented by four players in selection by league coaches. Carr, a forward, and Moss, a point guard, were joined on the all-league list by teammates Taylynn Kizer and Hailey Hughes, who were named to the second-team, in addition to Madi Smalley, who earned honorable mention recognition. Kizer and Smalley are freshmen, while Hughes, Carr and Moss were second-year starters as sophomores.

In addition, Tigers also showed achievement in the classroom with their second-place finish in the state Academic Championship race. Douglas compiled a 3.73 team grade point average that trailed only Bishop Manogue's 3.82.

Douglas wound up with sole possession of second-place in the league and earned the right to host Spanish Springs in the first round of the Northern 4A Region Tournament. The Tigers lost that playoff game on Feb. 15, 60-50.

Carr came up big on Jan. 20 when she scored 14 of her game-high 20 points to help the Tigers rally for an important 43-42 homecoming win against Galena. Moss wasn't so much a scoring threat as she was a quarterback who set up the offense and helped spark the team's pressure defense.

Kizer's featured performance came on Jan. 31 when she buried five 3-pointers and scored 26 points — which ranks among the highest single-game totals in school history — in a 56-37 win at home against Damonte Ranch.

Not surprisingly, undefeated league champion Bishop Manogue dominated the all-league honors. Seniors Katie Turner (bound for Davidson College in North Carolina) and Malia Holt (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo) were co-Player of the Year recipients and Carlnel Wiley was named Coach of the Year. The Miners captured their third straight region tournament championship and eventually lost to Centennial in the 4A state tournament championship game in Las Vegas.
