For our Roxboro Community School winter student-athletes, today is a good day.
This morning, the North Central Athletic Conference announced the 2019-2020 All-Conference basketball reecipients.
At RCS, freshman Tori Bailey was the lone all-conference receipient from the women's basketball team. Bailey led the Lady Bulldogs in scoring every game this year, and is a key returner next season. Freshman Michayaj Jay earned all-conference Honorable Mention as RCS' leading paint presence.
On the men's basketball team, senior guards Nasir Stokes and Jalen Bailey earned all-conference honors. Stokes and Jalen Bailey started almost every game for the Bulldogs, with Stokes leading RCS in scoring, and Jalen Bailey combined elite ball-handling skills with his ability to drive the lane effectively. Seniors Bryson Pleasant and JR Paylor took home Honorable Mention honors, with Pleasant being able to stretch the floor with his inside-outside game, and Paylor known for his post play and ability to make free throws.
