“I’m extremely proud of my girls this year,” Patterson coach Chasity Fontenot said. “We had a tough district — three of our five teams making playoffs — with us right on the borderline of getting in. For us having a girl make first team, along with five others making honorable mention, speaks a lot for our program. We’re definitely making progress and will continue to do this. It’s going to be hard to see my four seniors go, but we will have youngsters step up next year to get the job done.”
