Thomas was an honorable mention last year and made a significant improvement into the first team. Bailey took the year off last year and was able to come back and make the second team.

“It’s a very amazing accomplishment for me,” Thomas said. “Going from an honorable mention in the exact same conference to being amongst the elite is amazing.”

“After taking my junior year off to work on school and coming back my last year I would have never imagined this,” Bailey said. “I was really excited about making the second team. I had the time of my life on the court with those girls.”

Both teams season ended this week after Conference 18 tournament losses to Great Bridge. The Bulldogs finished the season with a four-game winning streak before the loss, and the Lady Bulldogs had a seven-game win streak going.
