L-E announces basketball, wrestling honors

Central’s Joseph Thompson and Hardaway’s Kelsie Weynand highlight this year’s All-Bi-City basektball teams as Players of the Year.

Thompson led Central to the AHSAA final four. He finished the season shooting 73 percent from the floor with four blocks.

Weynand’s Hawks started the season as the hottest team in the area with 18 straight wins out of the gate. Weynand was a key part of that squad.


Bobby Wright is the All-Bi-C i t y b o y s Coach of the Year. The Red Devils were 24-5 and lost to eventualstate champs Vestavia Hills in the final four.

Hardaway’s Kendall Mills led the Lady Hawks into the GHSA playoffs where they finished 24-5. The Hawks’ pressure defense was a force. He is this year’s girls Coach of the Year.

This year’s wrestling All-Bi-City Player of the Year is Harris County’s Joey DeNova.

DeNova, who already had a state championship, won a title in a different weight class and with a different school this year. Hardaway’s Hunter Jackson was named Coach of the Year in wrestling. He led the Hawks to a 22-2 record and a top-eight finish. The Ledger-Enquirer will announce the All-Bi-City swimming team Tuesday.
