CHILDRESS – Seniors Grace Foster and Josh Tucker were recently named to the District 2-3A All-District team. Foster, a 6’1” power forward and shooting guard, was chosen Co-Offensive MVP while Tucker, a 5’11” point guard, was selected Defensive MVP.
Foster, who has been a Lady Cat for the past four years, was also selected to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches’ (TABC) Class 3A All-Region team.
“We are very proud of Grace and all of her accomplishments,” Athletic Director Jason Sims said. “She works hard in the gym and in the classroom. Grace is going to have a great college career, and we are proud she is from Childress.”
Like Foster, Tucker was also selected for multiple other teams including the TABC’s Class 3A All-Region team and the Texas High School Coaches Association’s (THSCA) Academic All-State first team, a team composed of senior athletes with outstanding moral character and an overall grade point average of 92 or above.
“That is a testament to his dedication in the classroom as well as the court,” Sims said regarding Tucker’s THSCA selection. “He is a hard-working kid and that will serve him well in college.”
Childress High School Principal Paige Steed added that both Foster and Tucker maintain a 4.0 GPA.
“They are hardworking and dedicated to being the best versions of themselves,” Steed said. “These students excel in the classroom as well as the court.”
Also representing Childress in the TABC’s Class 3A All-Region team is Devron Sims, a 6’0” senior who has played with the varsity Bobcats for three years now.
“He’s been a standout for our boys’ basketball team,” Sims said. “Devron is a very good athlete and his athleticism served him well this season.”
Other selected Bobcats include seniors Ben Ellerbrook, Lane Foster and Camden Read, all of which were selected to the THSCA’s Academic All-State team. Ellerbrook made first team while L. Foster and Read were selected for second. They all maintain an impressive GPA above 3.5, Steed added.
“These senior students lead by example on the basketball court and in the hallways of Childress High School,” Steed said. “They exemplify the definition of what it means to be a Lady Cat or Bobcat and are excellent role models for the future generations. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for each of these outstanding students. I’m extremely proud of every one of them.”
“I feel blessed to have such great kids representing our community on the court,” Sims said. “All of the honors they earned are well deserved. We couldn’t be prouder of them.”
