After rolling through an unbeaten regular season and winning both the Northern Neck and Region 1A championships, Lancaster High School claimed the region’s top honors and placed six on the all-region teams, selected by coaches February 27.
Lancaster sophomore Troy Henderson, who has scored more than 500 points this year and reached the 1000-career point milestone, was chosen player of the year and named to the first team.
Dwayne Pinn, who has led the Red Devils to a 26-0 mark so far, was selected by his peers as the coach of the year.
Troy Henderson’s brother, senior Tyson Henderson, who reached the 1000-career point mark in last week’s region championship win, 64-50, over Middlesex, also was named to the first team.
The Devils placed two on the region’s second team in senior guard Gerrion Owens and senior forward X’zaveion Owens.
Middlesex, the region runner-up, placed two on the first team, in junior guard Kellen “Ichi” Layne and sophomore guard JaQuan Griffin.
Others named to the first team were Tae Lagette of Mathews, Kamren Robinson of Essex, Braden Justice of Northampton and Vaughn Harris of Westmoreland.
The second team included Jayden Kidd of Middlesex, Malik Holmes of King & Queen, Damin Fauntleroy of Westmoreland, Tre Greene of Mathews and Quayshawn Washington and Ronyell Coston, both of Northampton.
