Aledo guard nets APC MVP

Alyssa Dry a ‘smooth operator’ running Ladycats’ offense


But there were probably none more impactful than Weatherford sophomore Maddie Dorris, who provided an inside presence for the Lady Roos and contested boards against a steady flow of talented opposition.

With a lone senior in its ranks, Brock’s coaching staff, led by head coach Chance Westmoreland, guided the Lady Eagles to yet another UIL tourney in Austin. Brock’s instilled never-say-die attitude very nearly brought home another title as it made a late run against a big and talented Wall squad.

An unexpected inspiration prompted another Superlative’s category for the 2013-14 roster. Though there is purportedly (mathematically, anyway) no such thing as an effort of 110 percent, one might be debated vigorously by area coaches on the phenomenon. “Hustle” is an absolute necessity for an effective defense, and while there is an abundance of energy on virtually all of the Parker County girls’ teams, one particular player displayed training-video material for “getting after it.”.

Brock’s Madi Mayfield made the most of her minutes on the court, which were precious ones in the Lady Eagles’ rotation. The 5-9 junior was often looking up at her nemeses, but was contesting every rebound and claiming possession of every loose ball in a flurry of activity all over the court.

For her efforts, and the definitive example of hustle to teammates and opponents alike, Mayfield has been selected as the APC “110” Award recipient. Whether the category becomes a staple of the APC roster or is a one-off designation, it is certainly warranted for praise on the 2013-14 roster.

  All of the area teams are well-represented, and deserving, in the three-team roster of the APC.
