Sports Briefs: Freshman guard earns All-American honors

By Jason Weir

A season of honors for Pima Community College women’s basketball freshman point guard Sydni Stallworth continued

April 5 when she was selected first-team All-American.“It feels great to receive the award as a freshman,” Stallworth

said. “I want to thank my entire coaching staff and my teammates.”

Stallworth, the sixth PCC women’s basketball player to ever receive the honor, started all 36 games for the Aztecs on

their way to a record-tying 28-8 overall record. She was named ACCAC Player of the Week four times and NJCAA

Player of the Week once.

After helping lead the Aztecs to a third-place finish in the NJCAA Division II Tournament in March, she and teammate

sophomore Taylor Blue were named to the All-Tournament team.

“I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in today if it weren’t for my team pushing me,” Stallworth said.
