All Hays Free Press/News-Dispatch basketball teams

Most Valuable Player – Kayla Presley, Lehman
From the moment she hit the court at Lehman High two years ago, junior guard Kayla Presley has shown an uncanny athletic ability that’s been tough for most opponents to hold back. When her teammates needed her the most this season, Presley, more often than not, answered the call and delivered, becoming the shoulders for her teammates to stand on even amid being double or a triple teamed. It’s one of a handful of reasons why we at Barton Publications name Presley as our 2019 girls basketball MVP award winner. Presley finished the 2019 campaign with a 15-point per game average, which led the team this season. Presley’s contributions went far beyond just getting the ball in the bucket. Presley, who also led the team in assists and steals this season, was a key vocal and motivational leader for the Lady Lobos.

Most Valuable Player – Enzo Arnold, Dripping Springs
Amid a district brimming with basketball talent, senior guard Enzo Arnold provided Dripping Springs’ Tigers a key boost that pushed them into the postseason. Arnold, who finished the season with a team high 9.7 points per game, finished the 2019 season with first-team All District 25-5A honors, as well as All-Region IV honors as well. Arnold shot 42 percent from three-point range, which was second highest on the team, as well as an 82 percent free-throw percentage, minimum 10 attempts.
