Three members of the Buckingham County High School varsity girls basketball team received All-Courthouse Conference 37 selections.

The Lady Knights’ sophomore guard duo of Jayda Chambers and Shamari Wingfield made the all-conference second team, and junior power forward Honei Hill received honorable mention.

“I was proud that we got our two guards, Jayda and Shamari, second team all-(conference), as they have played very hard and played well together all season,” Buckingham Head Coach Kelly Chambers said.

The coach said Jayda Chambers’ stats explained why coaches selected her for recognition, as she averaged a team-high 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 0.7 blocks per game.

“She just proved to be an all-around player, who contributed and stepped up when needed,” Coach Chambers said.

This was the second time making the second team for Jayda Chambers but the first time for Wingfield, who averaged 10.5 points, 2.6 steals, 2.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game.

“Shamari’s aggressive defense and her quickness is what I expressed during the (voting) meeting,” Coach Chambers said.
