LGR's 5A All State
Before we get started please note this is NOT the LSWA (Louisiana Sportswriters Association) all state team but solely Louisiana Girls Rankings thoughts. Again with our platform we are only trying to help keep the conversation going about OUR girls so this is just another way of doing that. The 5A classification this year has been one of the deepest classes in years past and was absolutely loaded with talent which made for a great playoff run and the best state championship game I've ever watched!
Mikaylah Williams Jr. / Parkway
Mikaylah Williams is again as good as advertised and we will say it again if you have not seen this young lady play you need to take the trip up to Bossier, LA and watch some Parkway HS basketball. Williams was named Gatorade player of the year to give her the opportunity to go back to back winning the award putting her in the same company as: Cara "Moon" Ursin (3x's), Theresa Plaisance (2x's), Whitney Jones (2x's), Seimone Augustus (2x's) being only the 5th player to win the award multiple times in Louisiana since its 37 years of existence.

1st Team (Alphabetical Order)
Jahniya Brown Sr. / Lafayette (Neosho CC Signee)
Terren Coffil So. / John Curtis
Jermesha Frierson Jr. / Southwood
Caitlin Travis - Jr. / Walker
Jaylee Womack Sr. / Ponchatoula / Tulane Signee
Jahniya Brown helped lead Lafayette HS to one of its best seasons in some time and they did this by being one of the top teams in the state all season long. The Neosho signee averaged nearly 20 points per game and over 8 rebounds per game as the stretch forward helped the Lady Lions both inside and out!
Terren Coffil completed another season adding another state championship to her already impressive resume for the sophomore sensation. With winning championships as a team comes both awards for the teams as well as individual awards for the players! Terren Coffil is already one of the best players in the state of Louisiana despite only being a sophomore and her and her John Curtis teammates will be one of the top teams in the state for the next several years to come.
Jermesha Frierson has continued to take her game to another level as she transitioned a great summer of basketball into the high school season getting the Southwood Lady Cowboys back into the quarterfinals for the first time in five years. She made first team all district in district 1-5A which is arguably the toughest district in the state scoring 23ppg.
