Ballard tops on APC roster

Deep-running playoff teams help populate All-county listing


Brock always has a strong showing on the APC roster and this year is no different. With point guard Bailey Cockburn selected as the top defender in the county, the Eagles placed another handful on the APC roster. 

Brock, ever the contender, fell to state-champion Ponder on a last-second basket at the regional tourney, and will surely make another serious run with its relatively young squad next season.

Despite a tough season in a talented district , Weatherford placed five deserving players on the APC list.
