The Lady Coyotes landed a pair of familiar faces on this year's District 3C All-Conference list.

Senior Christina Jaynes and junior Melony Fetter were both named to the 2020 All-Conference team. Jaynes also earned a spot on the five-person Defensive team.

Both Athletes have made the 3C list in previous seasons. Jaynes made the list in 2019 and was an honorable mention in 2018. Fetter was named to the 3C list in 2018, prior to playing a year of basketball in Harlem.

"Melony Fetter was a great leader during practice," Coach Benson said. "She made my job a lot easier when coaching two teams. The one thing she can do is take over a game. She helped us win a lot of games this season. Boy can she shoot the three; when she was on, watch out."

Though Jaynes' season ended with an injury, Coach Benson was impressed with how the forward played in her fifth season with the Lady Coyotes.

"For Christina Jaynes, her senior year ended during the season with a broken nose. She was the rebounder, the shot blocker, the post, the guard. You name it, she did it on the basketball court."

He also admired her competitive spirit as a senior leader.

"She had a competitive fire under her," Coach Benson said of Jaynes. "She did not like to lose. I think she hated losing more then she likes to win. So she did everything in her power to win."
