RESERVE-It was definitely not how they wanted to end their season, but the Reserve Christian girls basketball team did pick up some recognition for the outstanding regular season that they had.

Jayna Morris, who averaged 16.2 points a game and Angel Arnold, who finished the season averaging 8.9 points a game, were both named to the all 12-B team.

In a surprise to no one, the duo of Morris and Arnold were joined on the all 12-B team by the Smith twins, Trenese and Trenell.

Trenese, who averaged 18.7 points a game and Trenell, who finished the season averaging 26.5 points a game helped lead the Lady Eagles into the playoffs, but they duo fell short of their ultimate goal of winning a state championship.

However, Trenell was recognized for her outstanding senior season as she was named MVP of District 12-B.

Reserve Head Coach Kevin Branch said he was happy for his girls, particularly the twins.

“I am going to miss these girls dearly,” Branch said of the Smith twins. “They are like my daughters. Wherever they may wind up going, Coach Kevin will definitely stay in touch with them.

“You could tell from an very early age that those two were going to be very good basketball players. They have an outstanding work ethic, which is something you definitely need. You cannot just be talented, you have to work for it everyday. Anything you ask them to do, they will give you 110-percent. I am definitely going to miss them.”

Branch was also quick to praise his other two all-district members in Morris and Arnold.

“These two girls are probably going to be our go to players next season,” Branch said. “Along with Jessica Porter. Combine those three with some young players that are coming into the program and I think we should be a solid team next season.”
