Nikya Orange (Tanque Verde) and Luisa Chavez (Rio Rico) were both named to the All-ACCAC Third Team playing for Pima. The duo were also named to the All-Region I, Division II First team.

In addition, Orange was named ACCAC D-II Player of the Week (Mar. 29-Apr. 4) after she recorded 19 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and a block in an 83-68 win over Cochise College.

Pima standouts Sierra Mich’l (Las Vegas) and Mama Thiam (Gilbert Highland) earned All-ACCAC First Team and Region I, D-II First team recognitions.

Luisa Chavez (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.

Portions from news release.

We recognized 134 athletes in 2020 and 34 athletes this year so far.
