The accolades kept coming last week for recent LHHS graduates Kourtney Bevers, Jessica Green and Susie Kemper.
All three were named among the Central Texas Top 50 athletes, as listed by the Austin American-Statesman.
Bevers was named the top athlete while Green and Kemper were among the top 50. Bevers was named #1 of the top 10; Green and Kemper were among the succeeding 40 top athletes on the list.
The following is the listing for the three LHHS (or, graduated LHHS) athletes:
1. Kourtney Bevers, senior, Liberty Hill: A three-sport athlete, Bevers led Liberty Hill's girls basketball team to the state tournament in March, and her averages of 15.8 points and 4.6 steals per game earned her a first-team spot on the All-Central Texas squad. Because she was busy with basketball, Bevers missed the first 13 games of the softball season, but the All-Centex Player of the Year in that sport still earned 12 wins as a pitcher and hit .418 as the Lady Panthers made their first appearance at the state tournament. Bevers, who will play basketball and softball at Mary Hardin-Baylor, also ran for the Liberty Hill team that placed fourth at the Class 3A state cross country meet.
*Jessica Green Sr. Liberty Hill: All-Centex basketball player reached state track meet, state softball tournament.
*Susie Kemper Sr. Liberty Hill: Class 3A girls cross country champion competed in two distance events at state track meet.
