SABINE PARISH, La – Three area girls have been named in the Shreveport Times as basketball players to watch going into playoffs.
According to the Times, the following high school basketball players will be the standout players through the playoffs.
“Zwolle: Olivia Sepulvado, a junior, averages 18.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season.
Many: Lyric Scott, a senior point guard, leads the team with 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists and four steals a game.
Florien: Kylee Strother averages 14.7 points and is part of an intense team.”
Following Tuesday’s game, however, only three Sabine Parish Schools, Zwolle, Florien, and Ebarb, remain in the playoffs to potentially bring home the title of State Champions.
Of the 18 “Players to Watch”, Olivia Sepulvado, a junior at Zwolle High School, is excited to “go show everybody the heart and rit [the] Lady Hawks have” as she says that “it doesn’t matter what you are ranked, anyone can beat anybody at any time”.
No matter the outcome, one thing is for certain, the parish is rallying behind these teams! Sheriff Aaron Mitchell and the staff of the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office wished all the teams luck in a Facebook post this week stating that “Sabine Parish has had talented basketball teams for years and most schools qualify for the playoffs every year. Sheriff Mitchell wants the teams to make Sabine Parish proud and bring home the wins!”
What an exciting representation of athletic talent in the area! Sabine Parish is proud to have three incredible teams representing the area in these playoff games and we wish them the very best. Bring home another title ladies!
