Five players from the Blinn College women’s basketball team have been named to the All-Region XIV and All-Region XIV Conference Tournament teams.
Nancy Warioba was the top vote-getter for the Buccaneers, earning all-region and all-tournament honors. On the year, Warioba averaged a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
“Nancy improved a lot from the beginning of the year to the end,” said coach Jeff Jenkins. “She will only get better in her next two years of basketball.”
Katelynn Johnson was named to the all-region team after hitting 85 shots from beyond the 3-point line for the Buccaneers.
