BA basketball players make All State


Ana Hollen taking a shot

Ana Hollen and Nathan Davis made All State this past weekend.

Senior Ana Hollen has had an amazing career, scoring a total of 1295 points in her varsity years. Scoring 495 points this year and 17.1 points per game. This definitely landed her on the All-State team.

“It’s a huge honor to have. I feel like I’ve worked really hard to get where I am today, and knowing it’s all paid off is a good feeling to have,” said Ana.

Even though she had been discussed about getting on All State last year she knew this year was her year.

“Last year I was close to getting on and since it was my last year I was hoping to get on. It’s a nice way to go out, and to end my career on a high note,” said Anna.

The end of this year Ana will be graduating and then be off to shooting hoops at UPJ.

“I am excited to move on, but a part of me just wants to stay here. It’s been my home for the last four years so now I have to drop that and go make a new one. I’m going to have to work harder than ever because at that level everyone is good,” she said.

This year as a junior, Nathan has scored a total of 692 points and scoring an average of 24.7 points per game.

Nathan’s always had a love for the game at an early age it’s no surprise he’s made all states so young.

“This is an honor for me because I believe it is a testament to how hard my team and I worked in the offseason. I know I wouldn’t have gotten this award if we hadn’t done so well as a team. They made my life a lot easier and are a great group of guys. I feel very blessed and honored to make this team,” he said.

There’s no doubting it that next year Nathan will be even better than ever and he defiantly have a shot at being a multiple year all stater.

“I’m extremely excited for next year, I want to go out on a high note with my friends. I think we have a chance to have a really special season. I can’t wait for the first game against Tyrone,” he said.

Next year for the boy’s team we should expect just as much as last year plus more.

“You should expect that we will again be competing for a league and district title. We will be competitive in every single game, to get better throughout the season, and definitely give Bellwood something to cheer about,” said Nathan.
