Freshman Kody Bauman was named to the first-team. He played for last year’s Mount Shasta High team that went all the way to the state finals.
Bauman emerged as a big part of the Eagle offense, averaging 12 points per game overall, and grabbing 5.6 rebounds a game. His 17 blocks on the season tied him for second in the conference. Bauman averaged 15.6 points and 6.7 rebounds in the 10 GVC contests
Bauman also thrilled the crowd with some strong dunks. Playing defense in the paint, Kody often guarded the Eagle opponent’s best big man and usually kept their scoring below their season average.
Dwayne McClendon made first team all-GVC in the 2017-2018 season for the Eagles then took some time off before returning this year to put up similar stats and be named honorable mention All-GVC.
He averaged 15.8 points per game to lead the Eagles in scoring and his six rebounds a game was also team-leading. He scored 380 points as a sophomore and 777 points for his career.
Sophomore J’Quail “Bally” Hanks made the all-defense first team. He had 14 steals and blocked nine shots for the Eagles while averaging eight points a game. He was a physical presence in the paint, punishing those who entered his territory.
The Eagles haven’t turned the corner yet in having a winning season, finishing the year 9-18 overall and 3-7 in the GVC.
The good news is the Eagles had an exciting team on the floor that drew fans back to the COS gym to watch the men. They return some good freshmen along with Weed High School all-league guard Xavia Martinez who red-shirted this year.
