Montgomery County had plenty of girls basketball talent in 2019-20. Whether it was a new star budding or a senior playing out her final high school games, talent was abundant in the area.
While some teams had down years, others thrived. Rossview won yet another District 10-AAA championship under Justin Woods and went to the Region 5-AAA semifinal. With coach Ben Wallace, Northwest had one of their best seasons yet, going to the district title game and also making a run at the region semis.
Clarksville Academy stole the show, putting up the most illustrious season in program history and completing a turnaround several years in the making behind our two big award winners: guard Sydneey Boykin and coach Carrie Daniels.
Every player this year was deserving.
