Published 12:54 pm Monday, July 2, 2018

While they walked the stage and earned their diploma over a month ago, Brittney Cupp and Jill Enix are still being recognized for the work they did on the hardwood. The two earned All-State Honorable Mention honors by the Associated Press recently.

The award goes on the mantle with several others Cupp earned while spending her senior season with Bell County. The Southeast Missouri State commit was also named First Team All-Region by the 13th Region Coaches Association, 13th Region Media Girls Breakthrough Player of the Year and 13th Region Media Girls Second Team.

Cupp helped lead the Lady Cats to a 19-10 record. She averaged a double-double tallying 14.1 points and 13.4 rebounds. She also led the team in field goal percentage shooting at a 49.5 percent clip.

Enix wrapped up her career at Pineville by helping the team earn a 13th Region Tournament berth for the second time in three years. The Midway commit won 51st District Player of the Year from the media. She also earned spots on the All-13th Region team by both the media and the coaches.

Enix finished the year averaging 16.1 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. She shot 68.1 percent from the charity stripe and 41.7 percent from the field.

Another local standout, Harlan County’s Blair Green grabbed first team honors by the Associated Press. The 13th Region Media Player of the Year averaged 25.7 points while shooting 58.9 percent from the field. She also tallied 6.5 rebounds per game.
