The Stone Memorial Lady Panthers are the 2020-21 District 6AAA Champions, and Tessa Miller is a major reason why.

The senior post put together a double-double of 25 points and 10 rebounds against White County in the district semifinals, finishing just two assists shy of a triple-double.

Miller followed that up with a game-high 28 points in the district championship against Cookeville, as she earned All-Tournament and Tournament MVP honors.

She also led the First Bank First Team for the week.

First Team

Grant Slatten (White County): Slatten scored a game-high 36 points against Stone Memorial to lead his Warriors to the District Championship game, where they will take on Warren County in McMinnville.

Jordan Gillies (Cookeville): Gillies put together two phenomenal games in the district tournament, as she scored 16 points in a win over Warren County, and then led her team with 21 points in the championship game against Stone Memorial.

Brandon Dillon (Monterey): Dillon led his team in scoring in a win-or-go-home game against Clarkrange with 14 points, and then added 10 points in a road win over Trousdale to clinch a region tournament berth.

Ericka Davidson (Jackson County): Davidson led a balanced scoring attack in a win over Trousdale, as she scored a game-high 15 points in the 60-44 home win.

Cassie Gallagher (Cookeville): The sophomore post paced her team in scoring in the Lady Cavs’ district semifinals win over Warren County with 26 points.

Dee Spates (Warren County): Spates was the game-high scorer in the Pioneers’ 50-39 win over Cookeville to clinch a spot in the District Championship game, as he scored 17 points.

Matthew Sells (Livingston Academy): Sells was lights out once again in Monday’s district quarterfinals win over Smith County, as he led all scorers with 24 points.
