Second Baptist School women's hoops rack up awards following historic year
HOUSTON – The 2019-2020 version of the Second Baptist School women's basketball team won't soon be forgotten.
The group made it all the way to the TAPPS 5A State Championship game and finished as the second-best team in Texas. With a season like that, there would be no surprise when the postseason awards would roll in.
Starting with the all-district picks. Leyla Ertan '21, Kaitlyn Kollmorgen '20 and Victoria Ryan '20 were first-team picks, while Emily Blackmon '20 was named second-team. Alyssa Elias '20 and Caroline Torn '20 earned honorable mention nods.
A few days later the TAPPS all-state picks rolled out with Kollmorgen and Ryan being named first-team, all-state.
"What a great group of young women we were able to cheer for all year long," Second Baptist School Director of Athletics Mike Walker said. "This group is very talented. The combination of a quick backcourt and tough-hard working frontcourt, our Eagles came together to get it done all year long."While individual accomplishments are flattering, we are especially proud of this group of seniors who led by example, loved each other and made it to the TAPPS 5A Final Four three years in a row."
