Tianna Carter, Angel Addleman, Nikya Orange, Luisayde Chavez and Daniel Moody earn collegiate honors

Tianna Carter (NC Central)

Former Canyon del Oro standout Tianna Carter was named Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Women’s Basketball Player of the Week on Feb. 8. Carter was a defensive force against St. Andrews for North Carolina Central, grabbing 10 rebounds (six defensive) to go along with six steals and five blocked shots. Her six steals were a career high and part of the Eagles’ modern-era program-record 30 steals as a team.

Angel Addleman (Palo Verde), Nikya Orange (Tanque Verde) and Luisayde Chavez (Rio Rico) were selected to the All-ACCAC and All-Region I, Division II teams playing for Pima.

Former Walden Grove standout Daniel Moody was named All-ACCAC Third Team and second team All-Region I, Division II playing for Pima.

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know. amoralesmytucson@yahoo.com
